Launch

After the earthquake in Nepal in 2014, we felt compelled to help children who were left behind. Our research led us to Ama Foundation - a small but thriving foundation who shares our passion and philosophy of helping orphaned children. With your generosity and a beautiful and trusted partnership with Ama Foundation, we have already started sponsoring 10 children.

 

Current need

It costs $1000/child per year to support inclusive expenses from food to clothing, school, medicine, books, backpacks etc.  Total cost for 10 children is $10,000 and our hope is to increase the number to 20 children this year. Help us reach our goal!

Volunteer Account

We would like to introduce Rob Sanders, one of AF's long time volunteer and supporters. Rob visits the home in Kathmandu - Ama Ghar - every year and has developed personal bonds with the children. He has affectionately been named Rob Brother or Rob Uncle by the children he has spent time with. On his recent trip to Ama Ghar,he wanted to do something special for our "alumni" - the older kids who have moved out of the house, but miss their Ama Ghar brothers and sisters enormously. Rob ended up taking the entire group trekking in Pokhara and the children had a fantastic time.
