WHO WE HELP
Kidasha Nepal is a children’s charity that improves the lives of children living in extreme poverty in one of the poorest countries in the world
Sandesh is one of thousands of street children, and like 4 out of 5 street children he abused solvents as a way to cope with the hunger, pain, cold, and physical and sexual abuse suffered living on the streets. He is now turning his life around. Find out more...
With 1 in 4 people living below the poverty line, it is unsurprising that 1.6 million children have to work. Many of these children, like Anuj and Sarita, are trafficked from villages and tricked into working. See how we got them both back home...
Sexual abuse is extremely common in Nepal, it is estimated that at least 1 in 4 girls have been victims of sexual abuse. Sadly, abuse of this nature is often perpetrated, or ignored, by parents and caregivers, as in the case of Ishama. Read her story here...
Nepal has over 500,000 children living in extreme poverty in urban areas, where they are particularly vulnerable to violence, abuse and exploitation. For example, children like Chinta, who was being exploited by local youths and about to drop out of school. See how we changed that.

Today marks #AntiSlaveryDay in the UK. At Kidasha we work with children who are directly enslaved but we also work to break the chains of entrenched urban poverty which just as powerfully enslaves people through no fault of their own. https://t.co/3zvB2iApcv https://t.co/yWMKcJ2gm1

A group of Kidasha supporters are currently taking part in our Trek to Nepal! 🏔️ This is the first day of a high-altitude trek through the Annapurna range, which will see the team visiting our sites and raising funds. We’d like to wish the trekkers the very best of luck! https://t.co/LDuQp6DT6c
