This year marks ten years of Beyond the Orphanage! In celebration of our 10 year anniversary, our CEO filmed a video to explain a little more about our programs and what they're about. Here's a recap of the video, taken live from one of our programs based in Pokhara in Nepal. “We arrived in Kathmandu on...Read now
With 10 years of hard work under our belt, Beyond the Orphanage has helped over 1,000 orphaned children in Ethiopia and Nepal.
Here’s a fact: we couldn’t have done it without you.
That’s why we’re celebrating over the next ten days by giving our supporters and donors behind-the-scenes updates from the field, by inviting you to join our Facebook Live streaming videos!
Our aim is to help another 1,000 children over the next decade. Reflecting on how far we’ve come already is the first step. So as we visit our programs in Nepal this April, we’re excited for you to join in on the experience!
We want you to share in our experience, first-hand
We’ll be live video streaming from Pokhara and Birgunj in Nepal, to give you day-to-day updates. Be patient with us – we’re crossing our fingers and praying that internet access in these regions holds up!
To check out each session, keep an eye on our Facebook page. We’ll be posting updates throughout April 2017.
When you see us live on Facebook, come and say hello! Ask us any questions you have about our programs, or the children we support. It’s time for you to hear directly from Geoff and Kate about the incredible leaps forward that your donations have helped achieved.
As many of you know, our story is a deeply personal one. It started with one man and a life-changing trip he took twelve years ago. During that first fateful trip, Geoff became increasingly saddened and horrified at the plight of orphans in the developing world. Many were homeless, sick, and experiencing institutional challenges.
As an international pilot who had travelled the world, and a father to a teenage son, Geoff struggled to comprehend the extreme hardships facing these children. In 2007, Beyond the Orphanage was born.
We’ve been lucky enough to watch many of the children in our program grow into young adults now enjoying university, vocational training or employment. These are remarkable transformations, given that less than a decade ago these children were without a home and education.
