Our Mission

Established in 2003, The Nepalese Children’s Trust was initially set up to provide a library for the Prisoners Assistance Nepal Children’s Home in Kathmandu, a home for the children of prisoners, many of whom had either been incarcerated with a parent or had been left destitute during the prison term of a mother or father.

Within a short time trustees had raised sufficient funds to support Prisoners Assistance Nepal in a number of other ways including helping to set up a second home in Sankhu, just outside Kathmandu.

In 2007 the trust achieved formal charitable status (Reg. Charity no. 1119767) and has since then expanded to encompass a number of other projects to benefit children and young people in Nepal.
