The blind children’s home is located in the Jumla district of Nepal. This area is one of the least developed regions of the country. Until 2015 our home was only accessible via an eleven hour trek from the Jumla airstrip.
We care for fifteen to seventeen kids, and in 2015 completed a new home for them. All of the children come from extremely poor villages. Due to remoteness and poverty, some of our kids rarely see their parents once they come to us.
Families in the destitute regions of the northwest are often unable able to support children with disabilities. The kids are usually malnourished and undereducated when they come to us.
