The number of children at our transit home in Dhading is steadily decreasing which is great news - less children in Dhading needing emergency support. We have 8 children at the moment in our care but the number changes constantly as we link children back with their families or permanent children's homes. We have just welcomed an 8 year old boy who was sleeping on the streets of Dhading with no family to look after him. After a couple of weeks with us, we can finally see a lot of smiles on his face.
At the moment we are focusing on the family support part of the project. We are getting goats and sewing machines to help the families get a sustainable income so that they are able to look after their children. For some families we are now arranging training - tailoring and briquettes making. This requires our field worker, Sanju, to spend a lot of time in villages that were badly damaged by the earthquake. It sometimes gets hard but is definitely worthwhile!
Not long ago we visited some of our children that we linked with a lovely children's home in Kathmandu, Ama Ghar, and it was wonderful to see how happy they are. They are all attending school and making new friends all the time.
We hope to make it a long term project and help as many families and children in Dhading as possible, so please continue supporting us. 100% of donations are going to Nepal to support those that need your help the most.
And thank you so much - without your help, none of this would have been possible.
