Happy Home Orphanage



We have now been working at the orphanage for 3 weeks and it still feels that we have just arrived!!! Julien is teaching science every day all day… whilst Anne is the official photographer and the kids helper… I try to help Bishwa with the communication and finance in between teaching the kids and trying to mix with the different classes too.

The kids are just great.. even with nothing they are happy.. We went to get some old tires and they play with those a lot.. we also managed to get a massive concrete circle delivered for free and have used that as a sand pit…

There is a lot to do and a lot to buy to make their lives better… actually you might all be able to help as we are looking for sponsors for the 60 Dhallu kids who have just arrived… In order to school, clothe, feed and lodge them we have calculated that we need £50 a month until they reach the age when they get a job or get married… So if you want to help this is the website you need to have a look at… http://www.happyhomenepal.org/

There are also some one off project we need to find funding for such as setting up a library, building a fence etc… I will try to put something together and attach…

The kids are all given education so they have a daily structure like our kids… assembly, lessons from 10 till 4 and then they have all their chores to do.
They are all so independent and the eldest help the younger … so nice to see this solidarity amongst them.

I have enclosed some pictures of their day as well as some of their portraits… Anne is doing a yearbook for all years and we hope to have the site updated as soon as possible.
