More Info

The Sampurna Children's Home in Dakshinkali, Nepal, jointly established by Sampurna Nepal and Les enfants du toit du monde, now has twelve children living in it. They attend regular school and know a secure and emotional living environment. It is located in Pharping (1h30 from the capital). By responding to the emergency in 2015, after the earthquake, the operation up and running. The project is now moving towards an education open to the natural environment and local cultural heritage. In the future our organisation aims to create a living space adapted to these educational objectives. This will allow us to accommodate an additional twenty children.

When it was created in November 2015, Sampurna Children's home needed immediate accommodation. The renting of a house was urgent. The current house correctly meets the needs of the children's home, however it remains limited to welcoming 10 children max. In addition, the accommodation for the supervisory team is not satisfactory and the dining room is installed in the commercial premises not adapted to this function. Finally, it is also missing a room to stock necessities.

 We want to increase the accommodation capacity and meet the demand whilst having a building that is truly adapted to the functions of a children's home.We found that the construction of a dedicated structure was the most satisfactory solution.

In addition, living in a rental place also means that we are highly dependent on constant funding to operate the house. Finding our own place means the beginning of self-sustainability.

Through our hard work and our partners' support, we have successfully raised fund to buy a land of 2034.96 sq meters, and we now need to construct a well-designed home for children. We have put in a lot of thoughts into this. We are planning to have a vegetable garden to produce our own organic produce for the children's consumption, solar panel to harvest sunlight which is plenty in this area, a playground, a library and a learning space for up to 24-30 children. 

In the future, we will also strive to open a children's clinic and a guesthouse on the same property, to generate self-sustainable income for supporting the children's lives.
