Creating family-centered homes in supportive communities!
Namaste Friends and Supporters:
Our family of eight children is thriving and becoming more and more a part of the local community. In February, our partners, the Bungamati Cooperative Society, hired Rajan Maharajan from the community to oversee the activities of the Family Home and interact with the children. He keeps the children company when they have their meals, plays games and does art projects with them. This integration of the home within the community is critical for the social development of the children.
Developing opportunities for income-generating activities to ensure long-term sustainability!
Bungamati is famous for it's wood crafts and is home to many master woodcarvers. GFV is seeking funding to assist the community with the creation of a gallery to showcase the work of these artists. A portion of the income generated from the gallery will go back to the family home, thus ensuring it's sustainability and the long-term success of the children.
We are very proud of Global Family Village-Nepal's innovative approach to creating sustainable positive change in the community, and specifically for orphaned, abandoned and children in need.
