CDC Nepal has been helping 17 kids at an orphanage entitled Sarita Children Home at Samakhusi, Kathmandu. There are 7 girls and 10 boys from 5 to 14 years of age. The following link will explain you how to get involve in our volunteering opportunity.
Sarirta Khadka, an unmarried woman of 43 from Kathmandu, established the home in 2007 by spending her own landed property received from her parents. Since she needed more money, she also borrowed Rs. 50000 (USD 600) from a bank to establish the organization. Her aim is to take care of such orphaned and helpless children, manage them to go to school and help them be self depended in their future life.
Sarita has taken a house on rent in order to run the organization. She has been paying $100 house rent per month. She has no body help her for the organization. She does all the works like cooking, cleaning, feeding the children and everything.
There are 4 children below 5 years old. They sleep with her. When she goes out they follow her. She loves all the children equally. The children also love her very much.
Since the organization does not have any source of income, Sarita collects donation in the market to feed them, to pay for their educational cost, school monthly fees, house rent and other administrative costs. She has also opened a shop in the market. The bigger children help her in her shop when they are free. She spends her profit to run the organization.
For some months Sarita has been suffering from backache. As prescribed by the doctor she has been taking some medicines. The doctor has advised her to have a rest. The children are worried to see her mother suffering from backache. Sarita is very much worried about the children. She says, “Who takes care of those children if dies”
CDC Nepal felt necessity to support Sarira to feed 17 kids. Since April 2012 we have been helping Sarita to feed the children.
