ChoraChori

Nepal child trauma management centre and refuge

We have a child trauma management centre and transit refuge in Kathmandu, Nepal. This is central to our child rescue programme that rescues displaced Nepalese children from India and victims of child sexual abuse in Nepal itself. Where necessary we also provide education and training for adult life.

Location

  • I spent this summer training the staff of ChoraChori in Theraplay. The children that the charity looks after are the most neglected and unjustly treated in society; abandoned, trafficked, emotionally, physically and sexually abused. Life has not been on the side of these children. ChoraChori is.

  • Thank you Bhaskar for a very informative visit today. I enjoyed meeting Shailaja, the rest of the team and understanding the range of services offered at the centre. Together you have all achieved major successes and the growth of ChoraChori Nepal over the last 3 years is very impressive.

  • I visited the wonderful ChoraChori child trauma management centre in 2017 just as it was being completed. This residential unit provides trauma counselling and therapy through arts and crafts, a contemporary approach to helping children deal with feelings they cannot describe. Most impressive!!

Situation

We rescue displaced and trafficked Nepalese children from India and the victims of child sexual abuse, including rape, from Nepal itself. Both groups show serious mental health issues after their traumas. We need to rehabilitate these children towards ideally returning them to their families (if safe and desirable to do so) or their communities. Restoration of mental health is vital to achieve this. Also, if reintegration is not possible, we educate and train for independent adult life.

Solution

We operate a transit refuge in a healing environment in the hills above Kathmandu valley. Here all basic needs are cared for and children have excellent space to play and recover. They attend the nearby government school alongside children from the local community. On the same site we have a child trauma management centre that is operated by an experienced psychosocial counsellor. We provide in-house and external vocational training. Other staff research and assess families before reunification.
