Pokhara update

Sunu’s tuition class in Chorrepatan, Pokhara is still going well, despite the challenges that the rainy season and a 2 year old son can bring! She has a tough job cut out for her, with a class of up to 25 kids every afternoon, all ages from 3 years old to about 13.  She helps…

Building!

Here are a few photos of the building site!

The government seems to be happy now for children’s homes to continue to operate, as long as they take children through the government and not through other organisations, and they have given out a few standards that need to be met, such as having smoke alarms, regular medical check ups, and a minimum number of rooms per home, and a few other things.

This is the first building on the land we bought – long term we are planning for 2 buildings, one for the kids and one for Dev, Maya and any volunteers/staff, who are legally required to be in a separate building.

We have some of Dev’s family helping out, plus some local guys, plus a few paid laborers. We also have a church member who manages construction helping us out with suppliers and things, which is really helpful. The kids love to visit and hang around.

Check out the photos, there will be more as the build progresses.
