Touch House

 

Kathmandu

This is the capital of Nepal and is located in a valley amongst the Himalayas. It is a very poor city with a growing problem of street children in a country where 60% of the population live below the poverty line. The plight of the street children like so many urban problems is a relatively recent phenomenon in Kathmandu. Ground down by rural poverty growing numbers of children are running away to the capital in search of a better life. It is now estimated that there are over 5000 street children, some as young as five. These children live or spend most of their time on the streets of Kathmandu with nearly 1000 more joining their ranks each year.

TOUCH House – Kathmandu

BACKGROUND TO THE PROJECT
The Nepal Children Welfare Service Centre (NCWSC) was established in 2000 and had operated since then in a rented building. The centre takes care of orphans, abandoned, poorest, underprivileged, needy and helpless children of Nepal. Financially it depends on private donations to run and maintain its service.
In 2004 TOUCH was approached to fund the building of a new centre for these children and agreed to do so. This project when completed will be known as TOUCH House.

PARTICULARS OF THE IMPLEMENTING AGENCY
N.C.W.S.C. is non-profitable and charitable social worker organization registered with the Government of Nepal with the registration no. 1152 (056/057) and is affiliated with the social welfare council with the affiliation number 10411. N.C.W.S.C. was established in 2000 with the view of providing orphans good care, support, education and vocational training in a homely environment under it’s guardianship.

It doesn’t receive any financial support from the government of Nepal and it is not affiliated with any political organization. Financially it depends upon private donation, individual sponsorship and assistance from NGO’s.
The Project is Administrated by Mr/Mrs Anil & Tara Kiran B.K.

TOUCH House in Godawari, Kathmandu was officially opened in November 2007 by Mrs. Sujata Koriala M.P. daughter of the Prime Minister of Nepal Mr. Girija Prashad Koirala.

TOUCH House is now taking care of 60 children from the age of two to Seventeen. It is very much a home for the children and they are all like one big family.

 

The official opening was a proud moment for all members of TOUCH Ireland both present and at home after two and a half years of fundraising came to fruition. The day included cultural dance, songs and drama from the children who were very much involved in the day’s events.

TOUCH Ireland also has a Child Sponsorship Scheme at TOUCH House
