The Ama Foundation is made up of a volunteer Board of Directors, one part-time staff member, and hundreds of volunteers and supporters who make our work possible. Without the involvement of so many individuals and communities, we would not exist!The Ama Foundation currently partners with Ama Ghar Children’s Home to provide a stable home and access to education for some of Nepal’s most underprivileged children.Working closely with the local Nepalese staff and the leadership of the Ama Ghar Board of Directors, Ama Foundation and Country Director Bonnie Ellison hope to better understand the real needs of the communities we serve and implement the necessary programs.
Cultural and environmental preservation is also at the forefront of our work. As we built our new Ama Ghar — which we moved into last year — both concepts were uniquely visible. Designed in the traditional Nepalese style, the building incorporates environmentally sustainable technologies.
The completion of the new Ama Ghar has opened up new possibilities for serving the surrounding community and Nepal as a whole. We look forward to partnering with other non-profits and volunteers to bring the most needed services and knowledge to the local communities.
