An update from Aishworya: Aama, the volunteer Director of Aishworya Children’s Home has taken seriously ill and is in hospital. In her absence, the children have been temporarily placed with several international NGOs to ensure they are fully looked after. We will update you as we know more. Our love goes to Aama and the children at this time.

We’re a family-run children’s home in Kathmandu, Nepal. We believe all children deserve a good start in life. So we care for orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children, and provide them with:

  • a safe, loving home
  • nutritious meals, clean water, clothing, medical care and necessities
  • a good education through local schooling
  • a safe play area and the opportunity to develop social skills
  • support with vocational training.

We love what we do. And we do not take a wage for our work. We exist with the kind support of our donors and volunteers.

Our history

In 2005 Nirmala Ghimire found two boys on the streets of Balaju; Jeetu (10) and Arun (8). They were hungry, homeless and crying. Arun was very sick so she took them to the hospital.

Local authorities placed the boys in an orphanage and Nirmala visited them often. Soon after she found two more abandoned brothers in Chamati, Jack (9) and Andy (3), and took them to the same orphanage.

A year later the orphanage owner had a heart attack. The children were moved to a different orphanage where they were badly neglected and beaten. So Nirmala decided to set up her own children’s home to care for them. She quit her job as a driving instructor, and sold land to pay rent on a property and provide for the children.

Since then Aishworya has grown. We now provide a home to nearly 50 children. For all children who stay with us, temporarily or permanently, we do everything we can to give them a chance at a happy, healthy future.
