I want to share some stories of the orphaned and abandoned children whose lives have been saved because of the Himalayan Children’s Charities orphanage in Nepal . . .
Personal History: Kabita is an unwanted third daughter of an extremely poor family from a remote village east of Kathmandu. She is the victim of a culture that values sons. Sometime after her little brother was born, it was decided that the family could not feed or care for her. Her sisters are manual laborers in the tiny field, side-by side with her parents, but they cannot eke out more than a two month food supply. After a half day walk and then a day long bus ride, Kabita was left at the Bal Mandir orphanage.
Fortunately, because Kabita stood out as a bright and personable child, HCC’s representative in Nepal, Dinesh, realized her potential and brought her to the Reliance School.
What makes her special? Kabita loves her new life at the Reliance School and is grateful for her good fortune to be at Reliance. She is a bright, affectionate, hardworking child who is eager to please her new kindergarten teacher. Kabita loves to skip, sing and play with her new friends
