a success story. John was the smallest of the street boys driven to the streets of Nakuru, an outer town of Nairobi, at the age of six, when his step mother refused to support him alongside her own two sons.

The global day of giving has arrived! This #GivingTuesday, give the gift of Equality so that the boys and girls, who are part of the BTO programs, can equally receive the opportunity to focus on more important things, like going to school, receiving vocational training or earning their own income.
All our local partner organisations in Nepal, Kenya and Ethiopia rescue orphaned children from dangerous and vulnerable situations and with your help, we provide holistically and individually to each child. In Kenya, the children can be living on the streets in the slum areas, having been abandoned or having been left with no choice due to extreme poverty. In Nepal, many of the children rescued are victims of traffickers and due to various circumstances, cannot be reunited with their families if any are left behind.
Proof that every little bit helps.
In the last 10 years, we have seen your generosity help many young children into school or vocational programs. Asha’s story is a very real example of how all donations, no matter how small, can change lives.
Asha is from a rural part of Nepal. Both of her parents are no longer alive and she was rescued from traffickers at the age of 14. She fled from forced child labour, from a household where she spent 3 years as a maid in terrible circumstances.
Our local partner program, Sano Paila tracked down Asha’s remaining sister but the research done during the reintegration process revealed issues which meant that Asha was better off in the care of our house mother at the BTO foster home.
After years being abused and not receiving an education, Asha struggled when she was introduced to school. It was however identified that she had an interest in all things beauty. With all due diligence done, Sano Paila approached a generous local business where Asha received training to graduate as a beautician.
Asha is still volunteering at the salon to finesse her skills but is well on her way to, one day, starting her own business.
With your help, we can provide the gift of equality to hundreds more children whose futures are not so bright right now. This #GivingTuesday, Donate to our Christmas appeal.
