In these quotes from the film “The Children of Ama Ghar,” the featured children share a profound sense of home and family experienced at Ama Ghar. Amazingly, Ama Foundation’s mission is to provide just that.
Currently, our primary program is Ama Ghar Children’s Home, just 18 kilometers south of Kathmandu. There we provide a home and family to 55 orphaned and disadvantaged children ages 4 to 18.
While education is our priority, it is not the only factor contributing to a child’s success. A stable home and genuine love are essential. At Ama Ghar, the housemothers and fathers care for the children as if they were their own. They also uphold a routine that encourages individuality as well as a sense of community.
The children themselves are shining examples of success. Click here to meet them.
Ama Ghar is growing! As the children get taller, smarter, and stronger, they outgrew our rented building. Luckily, a new Ama Ghar, funded by private donations, opened in the fall of 2011. To learn more about new programs at our new home and future goals click here.
