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.

Facing threat of widespread economic collapse, the demand for child labour has surged in Asia. To make matters worse, struggling families often see no choice but to send their children to work or to get married.
Help us provide the alternative.
We’re delighted to see our supporter Kirsty in the papers this week for swimming the #EnglishChannel in our aid!
