The Sankhuwasabha Education Scholarship Foundation (SESF) is a registered non-profit organization established in Khandbari, Northeastern Nepal in 1997. SESF aims to provide support for children in need, particularly girls, from Khandbari and surrounding districts.
Many of the children that we serve have lost their father due to either death or imprisonment and their mothers lack the means to support them independently without external help. We currently care for 20 children, 14 girls and 6 boys, sponsored by different private donors from a variety of countries. The children have been enrolled at both private as well as government schools in the Khandbari area.
SESF also raises funds to support an orphanage , Child Welfare Home (CHW) Khandbari, to provide 12 orphaned, helpless , abandoned children at-risk ( seven boys and five girls from six to fifteen years old) with food and shelter, educational opportunities, and healthcare.
SESF fundraising project through online Global Giving organization has brought a dramatic changes in the children’s lives at the Child Welfare Home Khandbari. The children are now provided with 3 meals every day and have received new school uniforms and stationery. We have also been able to purchase a gas stove to protect against the health and safety risks associated with cooking and heating by open fire
SESF has also pioneered a government registered and licensed nonprofit trekking company entitled Makalu Arun Social Trek (MAST) to promote sustainable social trekking towards community development in order to finance our child education program as well as to create jobs opportunities in the local community. All profits generated from our social trekking organization are used to support Child Welfare Home Khandari and ultimately, the nutrition, health, education and safety of our children.
However the fund raised through global giving is not sufficient to run the orphanage Our recently established Company has not been able to able to attract more tourists in the region and collect more service charge from them.
Dear our valued donors,
First of all we would like of extend our heartiest greetings and best wishes to you and your families on the auspicious occasion of coming Merry Christ and Happy New year 2014.
A lot of changes have taken place at child Welfare Home Khandbari during last four months. Last October the kids celebrated Dashain, as well as Deepawali,the grated festivals of Nepal, having mutton beaten rice, bananas, sel roti, wearing new clothes. During last Dashan Michael and his mother from Ireland were visiting Khandbari. They spent most of their time with the kids. Michel bought a football for the kids played football with them. His mother observed them playing football and having fun.
The guests bought new clothes for Rs. 3000.00 for each 12 kids.They also bought a rice cooker as well as other kitchen utensils for the organization. Michael has been ready to sponsor another child Mr. Nabin Magar from the orphanage to study at Surya Boarding school from coming March until he finishes his secondary label education. His sponsorship will commence from coming March 2014. Micahel's mother Ethyl Fingleton has been ready to pay the orphanage House rent $1000.00 per year some coming years. Michael also has been ready to support bigger girl Kopila Subba to study a technical subject in Khandbari after she competes her SLC examination.
In order to help the kids in their study we have employed a private tutor Mr. Raj Kumar Dahal from Makalu Boarding School, Khandbari. Mr. Jumoke Richards from England has come to volunteer at the orphanage. Since last October 21, he has been supporting the kids in doing honework. He has also been very helpful to the kids as well as the tutor. The kids have been progressing very well. Mr. Nabin Khanal has been able to secure 90% marks in his first terminal exam.
. Still we will have to do more to achieve our fund raising goal.
