Orphan Children Welfare Center - Nepal
To develop the condition of children and to secure their personal rights:
Parbati wants to take the children for whom the world offers no hope and provide an environment in which they can have a future. Nepal’s condition is very unstable, and the government’s presence is often weak because of this critical situation. The Orphan Children Welfare Centre aims to help provide for those who are powerless in the absence of the government.
Parbati worked in a Kathmandu orphanage for 13 years, and felt that it was important to start similar support for children across Nepal, further away from the capital, that might otherwise be overlooked.
Those we aim to help:
Children with no biological parents.
Children who are kept as workers in houses, hostels etc.
Children who are living on the streets
Children who are being sold in other Countries as workers or slaves
We provide the following needs to those children.
A peaceful and lovely environment.
Physical needs (foods, clothes, shelter, education, entertainment)
Mental needs (love, affection and kindness) as a whole, we give a bright future to society and this is the vision of the Orphan Children Welfare Center
Nepal’s current situation
The Democratic republic of Nepal is located between China and India. And is known to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. It's beautiful landscapes and high mountains are a great attraction for tourists from all around the world.
The Nepali society very diverse It consists of many ethnic groups, religions and languages. All of which creates a complex fabric of beliefs and traditions.
Nepal consists of 56,827sq mile or 1, 47,151sq km of land area.
The Population in Nepal is 23 million people, and is continually growing in a rate of 2.45% per year. Although 1.5 million people live in the Kathmandu area, only half of them live in Kathmandu, and 85% of all the population lives in the country side.
Being a 3rd world country and having most of the population living in rural areas creates many difficulties. Poverty and sickness due to lack of proper health care are just a few of the reasons why many people are forced to live in the streets, not being able to support themselves. Education is not common in the country side and many children do not get the opportunity to get good or any education.
Inevitably children are the ones to suffer more then any other group
Nepal’s economy is a poor one, 40% agricultural and only 22% industrial, the rest largely comes from tourism. A quarter of its population live below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day, and unemployment is so high that many skilled workers leave for work in other countries such as Asia. The infrastructure is in many areas under-developed (22 out of 75 districts lack proper roads), and there is less than 1 telephone in 19 people. Two out of three adult women are illiterate, as is one out of three adult men. Politically, there is no intervention on behalf of the children, and as Nepal is in a crisis right now, this has affected many children.
The political situation has left over 5000 children homeless, according to a UNICEF study, and of those children 50% may be HIV positive and many more ill. Child mortality rates are the highest in Asia, and 50% of children are malnourished (and this includes those with homes!), for the homeless the situation is even worse. 2.6 million children are working in Nepal, and nearly 5% of those working are in the cruelest forms of work (according to the International Labor Organization). It is very clear that Nepal is in great need of help, and every small contribution made by those wishing to assist will bring Nepal closer to a future in which its citizens are secure, healthy and happy! Volunteering in the Orphanage, whether teaching the children or helping look after them, will not only provide an immediate benefit to the children of the Orphanage, but also a be long term force in aid of the development of Nepal.
