Meet the Children

Sachin originated from the remote North-West of Nepal. His family situation was particularly disadvantaged as they were from a low-caste Hindu background.
Sadly, Sachin lost his mother at a young age. When his father remarried, his new step-mother did not accept him as part of the family. The severity of her treatment caused Sachin to run away and take shelter with a kind neighbour who found him a place at Hope Home in 2019.
Since finding his new family, Sachin has developed wonderfully. He has been provided with nutritious meals and the loving and encouraging support that comes from a caring family environment.

Yalas comes from remote west Nepal from a small village. He lost his mother at an early age when she left one day, never to return.
Yalas was well loved by the village. He was born with a disability which prevented him from being able to stand. When his father couldn’t afford for the necessary hospital treatment, the village raised the funds to give him the capacity to walk. However, when his father was travelling from the hospital to the village, he was injured in a serious bus accident.
Yalas was then required to work as a labourer to help with the financial suffering the family endured. The local pastor from the village was very concerned for Yalas’ health and recommended that he be cared for at Hope Home. His father agreed and Yalas arrived in 2019.
Birth year: 2009
Sandip originates from an outlying district of western Nepal.
Sandip lost his father at a very young age. His father had secured work in India, but when he became ill was unable to afford the necessary treatment and sadly passed away.
Sandip’s mother was blamed for the tragedy and forced from the community. The only employment was to be found in another township and Sandip was left to be cared for by his grandparents.
Being agricultural workers, they too found it too difficult to properly care for Sandip and found him proper care at Hope Home in 2018.
Sandip has developed into a very robust and courageous young person who excels in his education and is a very positive role model.
Sandip is partially funded.
