establish Namaste Children's House that would eventually change the
lives of so many Nepali children.
moment we registered in district office Kaski and became affiliated

and a home as well as staff. In short three months we leased and
furnished a large house, which can accommodate beds for 65 to 70

deeper and deeper as we continue growing. This means that our family
will be growing, too! We couldn’t feel any more proud and thankful
than we do now—and we still feel that our work has really only just
"Be the change you want to see in the world"
