Suzan and Anita are caring for ten children in Lalitpur, close to Kathmandu. NHCPS (Nepal Helpless Children Prosperity Society) has been established to work in the sector of helpless, street and orphan children found within Nepalese society. In this orphanage the children get daily food, water, education and lots of love - some things which should be normal in a children life. Unfortunately the access to water or education is still not guaranteed for all people in the world. Small projects like the NHCPS-Family try to enhance the life of a small group of individuals. Changes always start small, but this help has already changed the life of ten children - ten children who have a bed and someone that is looking out for them. With the education they get they can break the vicious circle of poverty and start to care for themselves when they grow older. Only if we support projects like this we can contribute a small part to world peace - because breaking down poverty means breaking down violence.
Why we need your help:
At the moment the children are all having their final exams. They are all doing really well and we are very happy about that.
However despite all this good news there are some things we are worried about right now. Final exams also mean that this school year is going to end, and the new season is starting soon. According to Nepalese school requirements we have to buy new school uniforms for the children. There is also a need for new textbooks, notebooks and administration fees.
Unfortunately those are not the only things we have to pay for and there are different daily problems we have to face. Monthly payments like the rent and food for all the children is one of the big issues we have to deal with. Furthermore we need to afford new water tanks which we use for cleaning, showering and drinking. At the moment electricity is still really unreliable and only available for a few hours per day – to solve this problem we are using solar battery, which is getting old and breaks down sometimes – so we think we will have to buy new solar battery soon.
To sum it all up, we need help for:
- House rent
- Uniform for ten children
- New school books
- Shoes for ten children
- New water tanks
- Solar battery
- School bags
