Namaste and warm greetings from Kathmandu!
It's great pleasure joing here.
There are an estimated 50,000 street kids scattered across Nepal in every major urban area. In Kathmandu alone there are some 1800 street kids and that number will have grown by 500 to 1000 more this year alone. The numbers, of course, are hard to verify as these kids do a good job of losing themselves in the cities and the suburbs. There are three types of street kids and they all need help. First, those living with their family on the streets: no home, no education, improper diet. Secondly, those with one parent or both parents who work at such menial jobs they too are homeless, no education, dietary concerns. Lastly, and the most unfortunate, those kids that are totally alone: abandoned, abused and no where to go and nobody to turn to for help. These children are the most in need.. These kids range in age from 3 years old on up.
Help us save the children of Nepal. In Nepal there are hundreds of children living on the streets. children who live and work on the streets of these cities who have been orphaned and abandoned, driven there by political upheaval, domestic violence and poverty. Over 80% of these Nepalese street children are boys with no hope of a future other than begging. But you have a chance to change all that.
You can give these children a chance at a better life Protego-Nepal is dedicated to helping these children by giving them a safe place to sleep, protection from abuse and by rehabilitating these young lives by teaching these boys new trades and giving them work. Remember the saying "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and feed him for life?" Protego-Nepal has taken this to heart and you can help.
