Help empower deaf children in Nepal

Join us during our End of Financial Year Appeal and give deaf children the power and confidence to make changes in their lives.

Can you help?

As well as our regular work, Beyond the Orphanage holds two major appeals a year to support project work we are doing collaboratively with our partners in improving the children’s lives.

Please join us for this appeal to support specific projects we have planned with our deaf community, RHERI. 

At RHERI, forty-four deaf children are provided with basic needs and receive specialist support through sign language teachers.

Our goal is to raise US$20,000 over the next six weeks to help our RHERI family.

The funds raised will go towards:

  • Adapting physical spaces for deaf needs (e.g. circular eating areas allowing everyone to be part of signing conversations at meal times)
  • A library with picture books in Nepali
  • A sports instructor and a psychological counselor
  • A school bus, so the children can get safely to and from school – you can read more about this here
  • Hearing and ear wellness checks for all children
  • Community and family awareness programs for pediatric hearing loss

Can you help? We would love your support!


Please share this page with anyone you know who might be interested in helping support RHERI.

Remember: Donations are tax deductible in the US and Australia. Please give generously and help our kids on their journey to independence.

A voice for deaf children

An estimated five percent of people worldwide are affected by disabling hearing loss. Untreated chronic ear infections account for thirty percent of hearing loss in children.

The vast majority of deaf people don’t have access to ear and hearing care services. In developing countries, deaf children rarely learn sign language and access schooling, which significantly reduces their ability to gain employment as adults.

Our partner RHERI has a residential hostel for deaf children in an extremely poor part of rural Nepal. Together we meet everyday needs and provide access to sign-language teachers, education and community.
