Namaste Children's house
Once again it was a packed 3 weeks.
We paid many visits to Namaste Children's House spending time with the kids & enjoying program like the weekly Fun Friday program. We were presented with thank-you gifts for our continued support.
It was great to see the children again and the progress they have made over the past 2 years.
It was interesting to see how much the younger ones had grown. How they were getting on at school & even better seeing them all happy & smiling.
During our visits to NCH Visma also took us the the land at Ghachowk that was purchased in 2011 for the new NCH Village & W.E.P.
The land it quite large & was purchased at a fraction of the cost it would have been in Pokhara.
It has the potential to provide a great base for all the projects to be in the same area.
Since our return the construction of the W.E.P. Sponsored by Namaste Foundation in Holland has already begun.
The NCH village has the potential to have a positive impact on not just the children currently under it's care. But also children in the local community, as well as the villagers & wider community within the Ghachowk area.
Sikles Village & Mothers School Project
One again we travelled to Sikles in the Annapurna Mountain Range high above Pokhara.
After a treacherous journey we arrived at dusk. As usual we were welcomed & very well fed by the villagers.
In 2010 we sponsored a young woman to get some formal training on using & teaching with a PC. This time we handed over new PC equipment for the mothers school & provided another donation for ongoing costs & stationery, books & equipment.

We are all well aware of the difficulties children & young people face in some of the worlds poorest countries.
Be it Africa, Asia or South America you don't have to spend too much time browsing over the internet to find children or organisations desperate for help & care.
Having seen some of these situations & problems first hand, having seen the desperation on children's faces. Seeing & hearing what they have been rescued from we decided to try & help in some sort of way.
Each year we have a few events & activities (in our very limited spare time) to raise money for charities like the ones above so they can continue the superb work they do.
Any donation however small can have a profound impact on the lives of the children we raise money for.
Below are details of the projects we are currently supporting:
