Yatra Nepal is also affiliated with Social Welfare council and the affiliation number is 27376. Yatra Nepal was granted an approval on16/01/2017 for running Residential Child Care Home from Central Child Welfare Board, under Standards for Operation and Management of Residential Child Care Homes, 2012. Yatra Nepal is a non-profitable and non-governmental organization, working for the welfare of disadvantaged, abandoned, helpless, orphans, poorest, especially underprivileged needy children of Nepal.

Yatra Nepal aims to provide free education, shelter and health care to needy and helpless children of Nepal. The objective is to equip them with the necessary skills they will require if they are to lead successful and fulfilling lives in the future. Currently Yatra Nepal is providing a stable and loving secure home to 14 children aged 6 to 16 years old.

MISSION:

  • To carry out necessary works for the economic, social, educational and intellectual development of children and adolescences in the society, who are poor, helpless and forced to live in hardships.
  • To provide education and health care services facilities to poor, orphaned and destitute children and adolescences in Nepal.
  • To provide food, shelter, stationery, and uniforms to children and adolescences of the economically deprived section and also to grant scholarships for studies to poor and bona-fide children and adolescences of Nepal.

GOALS

SHORT-TERM GOALS:

  • Sponsorship and Donations – It is of the utmost importance that we obtain a steady source of income through donations, sponsorship and fundraising projects to secure the future of Yatra Nepal and hence the future of our children. We need such funding to provide these children with the most fundamental of life’s requirements – food, shelter, health care, clothing, education, stationary, uniforms and a safe, secure home.
  • Counseling Service – In Nepal, there are virtually no avenues through which people can access mental healthcare. It is our goal to provide a counseling service for our children they have been the victims some of the most adverse conditions imaginable and have obviously mentally suffered as a result. We place this goal as a priority because the mental health of our children is equally as important to us as their physical health.

LONG-TERM GOALS:

  • Further Education Fund – Our children are currently still young, with the oldest aged only sixteen. It is our hope that when they each complete School that we would have established a Fund to provide for vocational training or university fees.
  • Building – It is our goal to eventually own our building outright. This will ensure that the children will always have a house and home without the worry of eviction.
  • Expanding – It is of course our ultimate goal to expand so that we will be able to take in more poor and marginalized children, and help as many young lives as possible.

PROGRESS

We are happy that all of the children now attend the Prolific English Boarding School and they are making remarkable academic progress, with some of the children who have never attended school before.

Our staff in Yatra Nepal children home is responsible for the discipline of the children, as well as teaching them new games and basic life skills such as gardening and cleaning. Having come from such adverse, and often isolated backgrounds, many of the children upon arrival at Yatra Nepal Children Home were unaccustomed to being exposed to unknown people and did not know how to behave in an appropriate way. The children now love meeting new people and welcome them with open arm, often insisting that they join in with their latest game. They have also been taught about personal hygiene which has improved both their appearance and their general health.

The extraordinary progress of these children demonstrates the natural capability and intelligence that they possess, and which can be fostered if given the opportunity.
