ORPHANAGE - The SSC orphanage is located in the Nayabazaar neighborhood. There are currently 13 children residing here between 5 and 14 years old. The children come from all backgrounds and all parts of Nepal, the only thing they have in common is that they have no one to take care of them. The orphanage staff provides a home, education and stability for the increasing number of children without parents due to the recent economic troubles and political unrest. The goal is to support these children within the community by providing food, education and medical needs that were not met before. It is operated on a completely volunteer basis in order to demonstrate how a few people can make a huge difference to the lives of others. These children need kind, caring and understanding volunteers that are willing to offer their time and mentorship. The orphanage staff sends the children to a good private school, and has volunteers come to help the children with their homework and to play with them, thus stimulating creativity and inspiring the children.
