Summary

This project assists orphanages and children's homes to provide orphans and abandoned children with a family, a home, education, and status in the community. (A family is a trained "mother," up to 8-10 siblings and community grandparents.)

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Nepal's appalling number of 974,000 orphan and abandoned children are being cared for in the most unfortunate of circumstances. Untrained caregivers, often disenfranchised themselves, are unable to provide adequate care for the children, many of whom develop attachment disorder, become developmentally delayed, physically disabled or mentally compromised. Upon leaving the home, they feel rootless, often lacking the social & organizational skills required to thrive in the outside world.

How will this project solve this problem?

Children growing up in a family setting are healthier and developmentally more advanced. "Mothers" are trained to encourage the development of self esteem and value in their children. Close community relationships nurture psychosocial development.

Potential Long Term Impact

Children who have grown up in a family will be able to form healthy bonds and relationships with family, friends and community. Orphans and the caregivers, who are often disenfranchised widows, will enjoy improved social status.
