THE CHILDREN OF NEPAL
In Nepal, there are an estimated 13,000 orphans as a result of HIV. Since there is little education about HIV/AIDS in Nepal, many of these children are left behind and forced to live a life on the streets. As a result of their circumstances, they are without care or protection and have no access to basic necessities, education or medical care.
With BTO’s expanding efforts in Nepal, we are working together with Star Children and Sano Paila, to help find solutions for these children so they can develop to their full potential.
With the support of BTO, Sano Paila (A Little Step) launched the “Sunischit Bhawisya – Securing a Better Future” program to provide protection, care and the overall well-being and growth of eight orphaned and special needs children in Birgunj, Nepal.
As part of a partnership with BTO, Star Children engages in long-term care, support, and formal and informal education of ten children. Star Children provides alternative family-based care.
We also work closely with community groups and institutions, to ensure we are enabling and empowering the entire community.
