Bhaktapur Children’s Home began in 2001 when four little boys who needed a home were brought to David Sagar’s church. David took those little ones into his own home and shortly after that he partnered with us to secure financial support for these children. For three years, we supported the children out of our own resources. The number of children quickly grew to eight, then twelve. It was then that we realized there was a legitimate compassion ministry being birthed. We asked for sponsors for the children and were overwhelmed by the immediate positive response. So far, we have been able to rescue fifteen children from the streets of Nepal.
Many of these children come from single-parent homes, with their families being too poor to care for them or provide an education. Some of the children are true orphans with no families to look after them. Some were found in piles of garbage looking for food. Some were found on the streets sniffing glue to ward off the hunger pangs. One little girl was rescued from a possible life of prostitution.
At Bhaktapur Children’s Home not only do they receive material care like food and clothes, they also receive the care and love of a mother and father. They are able to get a quality education and opportunity for a better life. Most of them come from Hindu backgrounds, but they are now serving God in their local church.
