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.

In 2022, despite the challenges of the ongoing pandemic restrictions, we’ve provided protection services to children living in crisis situations through our rehabilitation shelter, midway home, and six community centres. We will continue to do the same for 2023. https://t.co/lkmonQ3veq
As January draws to an end, we’d like to thank everyone who supported our #KidashaChallenge25 campaign over the past few months. We’ve raised an incredible £12,000 for the most vulnerable families and children in Nepal – and that wouldn’t have been possible without your support. https://t.co/ijYKfWROt4
We are thrilled to welcome @Rosie_Hazeldine to our Board of Trustees. Rosie has been a supporter for years, raising thousands of pounds for Kidasha. Her most recent fundraiser involved a 24-hour Rubik’s cube marathon with her cousin, Ben, in which they raised nearly £2,000! https://t.co/QjdNQ7Iob2
We’re overjoyed to announce that last year, our teams delivered Life Skills sessions across an additional 45 government schools. The success of the initiative meant that the course was formally integrated into the lower secondary school curriculum in Pokhara Metropolitan City! https://t.co/HFKb4oS2n0
We’re proud to announce that over 500 girls graduated from Kidasha’s Learning for Life Project in 2022! We’re overjoyed that this program has allowed vulnerable girls to continue their education and start new businesses, and we look forward to supporting a new cohort this year! https://t.co/6YMJuEc1EZ
