A place to heal

NYF’s therapists make house calls – 56 last year to be exact.

To make sure that Nepali children traumatized by the experience of child slavery, domestic violence and hunger receive the treatment they need; the counselors visit the children at their homes and hostels where they live.

During each individual or group visit, therapists use specific interventions to help the children heal their psychological scars and learn to live happy lives.

Counselors at Ankur Counseling Center also conduct therapy sessions and group at the center in Kathmandu. Last year, NYF counselors treated 1,617 children from our various programs. In addition, we are expanding the use of group counseling sessions to help children develop their social and behavioral skills. NYF counselors conducted 76 such sessions during the fiscal year ending June 2013.

Center counselors also trained 45 former Kamlari (indentured servants) as “peer counselors” to help other former slaves rebuild their lives. They have conducted numerous workshops, group therapy sessions as well as individual counseling.

Thank you for helping to make these house calls possible.
