Forward for children in Nepal

We rescue trafficked and displaced Nepalese children (mainly boys) from India and child rape victims from Nepal itself. For both groups we need to provide essential psychosocial support, short term care and protection and education/training opportunities. This appeal helps move both groups forward.

Situation

We rescue children from horrific circumstances in both India and Nepal. After essential rehabilitation we endeavour to move them on in life, where possible reuniting them with their families. Sometimes, in reintegrating them to society, we need to overcome stigma and provide skills through education and training. Without such empowerment they will remain forever vulnerable and a cycle of abuse and exploitation can continue.

Solution

We wish to enhance our capacity to manage teenage boys and girls who need our support to move them forward in life. This will be through expanding our residential capacity for boys and by investing in new training opportunities for girls. The latter will include the setting up in July of a new silver jewellery workshop as a training and social enterprise business in Kathmandu, this to be a Joint Venture with U.S non-profit Her Future Coalition. We will also be investing in new research and development for income generation activities in advance of our three-year collaboration with the Soroptimist International Federation of Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) “Empowering Girls in Nepal” project that starts in November 2019.

  • "My recent visit to ChoraChori’s refuge cemented my respect and support for this amazing charity. I saw first-hand the work that is done by an invested and genuine team to rehabilitate Nepalese children who have been through unspeakable trauma. Chora Chori succeeds in rebuilding them emotionally while providing them with education and tools for a better life and a future once they are ready to leave. There is still much that can be done to help facilitate the trauma centre; your generosity and support will help further the centre’s work." - Amrita Acharia, actress (Game of Thrones and Good Karma Hospital) and Ambassador for ChoraChori
