FOR FUTHER INFORMATON PLEASE SEE OUR NEWS AND EVENTS SECTION
The Buddha Memorial Children’s Home Trust is a charity that aims to give a practical, long-term solution to the plight of destitute, orphaned, abandoned and underprivileged children in Nepal by providing them with a sound all-round education from pre-school onwards - regardless of religion or culture, and for the homeless a loving home.
This we do principally through our support of: The Buddha Academy Boarding School in Jorpati near Kathmandu ; the Sherpa School in Bamti Bandhar in Eastern Nepal, and an exciting new intiative, the Om Durga Project in Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu valley. The first two are very well known to us and are visited regularly. Om Durga opened in May 2013 and we have every hope it will succeed as have our other two main projects..
We care for almost 1,000 children of whom 75% come from the remote and inaccessible mountainous northern regions. Most, when they arrive, are severely malnourished, and some are ill. The majority are orphans or come from broken or destitute families and, in some cases, suffer symptoms of physical and mental disabilities. We give them a chance to live like normal children, in a secure environment, with the opportunity to build a happy and fulfilling future.
None of them receive any government or other subsidy from within Nepal but rely entirely upon funding from abroad. Without our help they would be unable to continue.
The steeply spiraling cost of goods and general inflation in Nepal make it a constant struggle to keep our schools going.
Now just take a few minutes to read about these children’s’ lives, and you will see what terrible odds they have to overcome, and why we are determined to carry on.
You can help us by sponsoring a child, or by sending a one off donation.
