Childhaven first opened their doors and hearts in Nepal to nine orphaned and abandoned children. Thirteen years later, 140 children, many of them refugees from the civil war, have a home and a new family with Childhaven in Kathmandu. An additional 150 children from local poor families join the Childhaven throng during the day for school - and meals - but live with their parents.
Six years ago AHF helped Childhaven build a new home to accommodate all of the children. It's a bright place, and the children's voices fill the air with laughter and spirited songs. We continue to help, with food, clothing and education for the resident children. Thanks to Childhaven, these kids have a family - and real hope for their futures.
