With the charity due to close officially at the end of 2017, I have written my last ever Newsletter which covers our progress and achievements, our reasons for closing and our problems with Children’s Shade, a look back through the years, and our plan to continue to provide Scholarships and […]

Final Newsletter Now Out

In 2010 Sarah met Shyam and the children at Children’s Shade orphanage for the first time. In 2011 Sarah returned to Kathmandu, this time with Dave, and found the CS children in dire conditions with Shyam struggling to look after everyone. This led to the foundation of Namaste – Children’s Homes Nepal, with […]

Then and Now – Our Journey

The official side of Namaste – Support for Nepal will be ending this year, meaning we will close our bank account and end our UK charitable status.  Changes will be implemented at the end of November 2017. The purpose of closure is to cut out administrative work that takes up […]

NSFN Closure

I’ve just got back from Kathmandu after a wonderful stay and many happy moments with my (very grown-up) brothers and sisters.

Me and Shyam
The Namaste Students’ House (NSH) is now looking very cosy! The students are happy and working hard, and Shyam is slowly but surely recovering from recent illness. I am so happy to see everyone and our NSH home nearly two years on from my last visit.

NSH Update

I was lucky enough to meet a wonderful family this year.  They sadly lost their house during the 2015 earthquakes and NSFN provided scholarships and grants for the four girls to go to school last year. It costs us: £10 – £15 per month for school scholarships, £30 – £40 per […]

Meeting the Families

We’ve changed our name from ‘Namaste – Children’s Homes Nepal’ to ‘Namaste – Support for Nepal’. The reason we’ve decided we need to change our name is that over the years our goals and our mission have evolved. We are aiming to focus more on education and support for families […]
