Building Children Home and School Project

MAITREYA FOUNDATION NEPAL is based in Lalitpur district of Kathmandu valley. It was located in Dhapakhel area in Lalitpur but recently we have moved to a new place in Godamchaur. We need a bigger place and open space where children can live and grow comfortably and play the games happily. We also need a place which the children can call it as their own home.

Although we still need lots of resources to finish the school buildings and homes for the children we have moved to save the high rent of the hostel and school building in Dhapakhel. We are building separate homes for the girls and boys, kitchen and dining halls, class rooms, library etc. We will have two abodes; one to accommodate 50 girls, and the other to accommodate 50 boys. The age of the children at the Foundation ranges from the very young age to18 year.

The Foundation also runs the International School at a separate location, only a short walk from the children abodes. They all receive a solid and formal education at this school with the grades ranging from Lower Kindergarten (LKG) to Grade 7. Subjects taught at this free International school are English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Accounts, Computer Science, Music and Dance / Art, General Knowledge / Games and Nepali language. The children after the completion of Grade 8 still reside at one of the abodes of Maitreya Home, but attend a nearby public school. In addition to the children who live in the Maitreya Home, there are 20-30 disadvantaged children from the local community who come and attend this school every day.

 

We are currently seeking funds to complete the construction of orphanage homes and school in Godamchaur area. Necessary lands have been already purchased and the construction is going on.

The children are excited after moving to our own place but to develop the site as a true home and school we are looking for sponsors.

Although the initial investment seems quite high, it will save monthly rental charges in the long run which can instead be used in fulfilling the needs of the children.
