Established in 2005, Nepal Orphans Home (NOH) is a charitable organization administered in North Carolina, with operations in Nepal. NOH operates four children’s homes for more than 130 boys and girls in the Kathmandu Valley. The children are orphans or have parents unable to provide for them. Most of the children in the homes are girls, since they are more likely to be subjected to abuse and deprivation in Nepal. More than half of our girls have been rescued from lives of bonded servitude in western Nepal.
Nepal Orphans Home attends to the welfare of children in Nepal who are orphaned, abandoned or not supported by their parents. NOH provides for the children’s basic needs of food, shelter and clothing, as well as schooling and health care, and administers to their emotional needs with love and compassion, allowing them to grow up in a nurturing environment. Our mission is not just to rescue children from abject poverty, but to enable the children to develop and realize their potentials.
