The realities of life in Nepal

For many, Nepal conjures up images of exhilerating treks through breathtaking landscapes, with Mount Everest at its heart. It is a beautiful country which gains income through tourism and which many people aspire to visit.

Beyond the tourist centres, Nepal faces many challenge. Access to services, already limited by poor infrastructure, was further seriously damaged by huge earthquakes in 2015. Extreme poverty means fragmented families and displaced children struggle to reunite and rates of trafficking and exploitation are high, and it is these children that ChildHope’s work focuses on in Nepal.

Set up a monthly gift and give children a chance of a better future.

It also works with the marginalised families to empower them and to spread awareness about available services to prevent their children from ending up on the streets.

Hope and rehabilitation earthquake survivors

Nepals 2015 earthquake claimed more than 8000 lives and left tens of thousands of people living in makeshift shelters, unable to return to their damaged homes. But thanks to our project, some of the most vulnerable families will be able to resume living normal lives.

Shakti Samuha

Shakti Samuha (SS) began in 1996 and was registered in 2000. Since 1996, they have been organising and empowering returning trafficking survivors by providing shelter, legal aid, vocational training and counselling. SS have also set up Adolescent Girls Groups based in the poorest communities in order to pass on the message about the dangers of trafficking. Now SS are reaching out to rural districts where trafficking is prevalent, helping to keep women safe and make a united stand against the traffickers.
