Working in an orphanage

BVN works hard to educate and provide essential supplies for the children in our orphanage homes. Our main mission is to educate the children and we currently provide school fees for 90 children in three of our orphanage homes based in and around Kathmandu.

Current initiatives have seen us successfully improve the lives of children by providing the orphanage staff with training in management, sanitation and hygiene. Our aim is to give these orphanages extra support so they can provide the children with good quality food, clothing and school supplies. Through the commitment and dedication of our volunteers, we have secured sponsorship for 13 of our 90 children. We urgently need your support in maintaining this support and providing further opportunities for other Nepali orphanages. With your help we can give these children a great start in life and provide them with the essentials to comfortably live in a safe and clean environment. If you are interested in finding out more about how to sponsor one of our children please contact us at With your help we would like to extend our program further and reach more children who are in need of our help.

Street Children Project in Pokhara

This children center is in Pokhara and is home to 29 children aged from 9 to 13. BVN has been supporting this project since July 2007 providing rent, beds, blankets, and educational support for the children who live there. There are 29 street children living and studying here. Our target is to sponsor each child to go to school. We are also running an adult language class for the girls who work in the nearby restaurant.

Indreni Orphanage Home ā€“ Pokhara

The Indreni Orphanage home is in Pokhara and is home to 13 children aged from 7 to 12. All the children go to school nearby. We have been supporting this home by providing rent, food and educational materials. We are looking for individual sponsors for these children. In our orphanage placements you will teach English and hygiene and care for children living in the orphanage home. You will either live with the children in separate quarters or in a host family nearby the orphanage home. You can play games and sports with the children or enjoy dancing and singing. You will have a lot of freedom in the orphanage home placements. The children attend school during the day, so they often need help with their homework in the mornings and evenings.
