"It's easier to build strong children rather than to repair broken persons"

Our dream

 

It started

My dream started in the days after my marriage to Saroj, on March 10 2017, when I spent about 10 days with Saroj and his family in Amchawk. I was overwhelmed by the very poor conditions of education, hygiene and infrastructure.

Although I come from a poor family too, I was raised in Pokhara, a big city with good infrastructure, running water, electricity and lots of tourists. I was shocked to see the very poor conditions in Pashupatinagar.

I have a very strong feeling that we should do something for this village and the people, so I started to think how we can do this. I talked to Saroj, his and my family and Jan. They all gave me good advise but the most important advise was: start small and make a plan.

Nepali Children

Jan directed me to a Dutch woman Jolanda, the owner of the foundation NEPALI CHILDREN. She is happy to share her experience in setting up her project in Madanpur (near Kathmandu). For three years she is raising money and is building her house to raise and educate children with the help of Ram. She lives almost permanently in Kathmandu together with Ram's family. Together they run a tourist organization with an office in Kathmandu. They offer a lot of trekking and tours. Once Ram was also in a position to get a micro finance and was able to go to school. Now he is studying Business Administration at Kathmandu University and he has a scholarship. 

I will meet Ram in Pokhara in april 2017 when he is there for a trekking with tourists and talk about his experience and a possible cooperation. More information and links about Jolanda's and Ram's foundation can be found on the contact page. Please keep in mind that the offer home stay (Bed & Breakfast).

Our plans

Now back to me and my dream: Saroj is already giving free medical care to poor people in the surrounding villages, so we can expand this care and I can assist. 

We can also start to educate children and improve infrastructure and hygiene. As I said, I can not see all those children's futures be destroyed because I was at the very same condition back in 2008 when I was a child. Now I'm an independent girl due to the opportunity I got.

Saroj's father is a principal and he agreed to teach the children. Sarah mother is a house wife and she is happy to help us by looking after the children and to prepare healthy food for them.

Plans for the house

Saroj has a little piece of land where we can build a house with bedrooms, a library, a playroom and a kitchen. We can educate children and teach them hygiene. Because "it's easier to build strong children rather than repair broken persons".

So there is a piece of land, a dream, people who share my dream and offering help, and the plans are evolving. This is really a good start!!

Meanwhile I will work part-time in the Manipal hospital in Pokhara to earn enough money, while Saroj is working in the hospital of Pashupatinagar. To get an impression of the distance, please take a look at the map.
