Who We

Are

The Ama Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization 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 the individuals and communities that make up our worldwide Ama Ghar family we couldn’t do what we do.

The Ama Foundation funds Ama Ghar Children’s Home near Kathmandu, Nepal to provide a stable home and access to education for at-risk homeless 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 work to better understand the real needs of the children we serve and give them the confidence to succeed.

Cultural and environmental preservation is also at the forefront of our work. When we moved from a rented building that had been our home since 2001 to our current Ama Ghar home in 2010, we entered a home that embodied both cultural and environmental preservation, as it is designed in the traditional Nepalese style but incorporates environmentally sustainable technologies. Most importantly, we gave the children of Ama Ghar a place they could always come home to - and they do. Even our alumni who are out in the world come back to Ama Ghar to celebrate traditional holidays, birthdays and weddings and check in with their younger brothers and sisters.
