Orphan Help Center (OHC) is a registered NGO (non-governmental organisation) based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Established in August 2004, the orphanage cares for Nepalese village children whose parents have either passed away, disappeared or are too poor to feed and educate them. At this time, the orphanage is home to 17 children.
In a country where there is no social security and the political situation is highly controversial, OHC provides a unique opportunity for orphans to be educated at a private school and to be loved and cared for in a small, family-like environment.
The mission of OHC is to do more than provide food and clothes for the children. We want to give them a good education. We want to see these children go out and make a difference in the world - the world that is giving them a chance today.
