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

STREET CHILDREN

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...

CHILD LABOURERS

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...

VICTIMS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

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...

CHILDREN LIVING IN URBAN SLUMS

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.

A huge congratulations to this team of Nepali climbers for becoming the first group to ever tackle K2’s summit in winter!

Climbers from across the world have attempted to scale the 8,611m height during the harsh winter season, but it was no match for this team of determined Nepali climbers, who have made history and their country proud! 🏆 🇳🇵

Some determined lobbying by our team in Pokhara – who always work hard to make sure action is taken against employers of children under 14 years – resulted in Arun been awarded Rs. 25,000 (£159) in compensation for the unpaid work he had completed whilst on his own in Pokhara.

Currently, thousands of children across Nepal remain displaced, or engaged in exploitative unpaid labour. We are incredibly proud of the efforts made to reunite Arun with his family, and remain committed to ensuring that children like Arun have a similar opportunity of a better life.

To do this, we urgently need your help. A donation of any amount will go far in funding the tireless efforts of our social workers in Nepal, who work day and night to identify and house vulnerable children. Find out how you can support them, by visiting our website here: https://bit.ly/2VaISdC

After all the formalities were concluded, Arun was free to leave Pokhara and finally make his way home with his father. We discovered that Arun had been a 16 hour bus journey from his home; a journey which had he walked would have taken days.

Saying goodbye to Arun was difficult. He was a well-loved character at our shelter, and is missed by all of his friends. We are however, incredibly proud of his resilience, and wish him the very best in his future.

Just days after learning that Arun was not only alive, but and safe and in the care of trusted social workers, Arun’s father and uncle made their way to Pokhara. Once there, they went to the district police office to be reunited with Arun, who had at that point been trying to find his way home for over a year. We took this image of Arun, his father and uncle shortly after their tearful reunion.

The process to identify and locate Arun’s father took around 9 months, largely due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and Nepal’s subsequent nationwide lockdown. If his father hadn’t filed the missing person’s report, the process could have taken years.

As we approach the end of the year, we’re reminded of the individuals that, despite the difficult circumstances, continued to take time out of their day to lend their support to us. You kept our spirits high all of 2020, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you. https://t.co/Te5BgsNASB KidashaNepal photo

Many people around the world will have spent this festive season away from their families, and have sought new ways to lend a helping hand.

Donating just £5 to Kidasha can provide a family with the practical and psychological support they need for one month. Can you help? https://t.co/2Ivu3fylH4
