“Ama Ghar feels like my own home now.” – Pabita
“I have so many brothers and sisters here, which is just joyful.” – Sarada
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. Our primary program is Ama Ghar Children’s Home, just 18 kilometers south of Kathmandu. There we provide a home and family to 48 orphaned and disadvantaged children ages 3-1/2 to 19.
We are fortunate to be able to provide the children with the best education possible, at English speaking schools where they can learn computer skills that will help them to have a successful future. As many of our children are now teenagers, we are supporting their education as far as their skills will carry them – to vocation school, internships, college and university.
While vitally important, we believe that education 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!
