We can all make a real difference


IGWR is an Australian charity that helps vulnerable families in Nepal. We have a special focus on supporting single mothers and children who need support to attend school or a safe home. For twelve years we’ve been making a real difference by giving opportunities that enable these women and children to blossom and find a sustainable future for the whole family.

"When we give a child an opportunity to go to school and then on to college, we create a future for the child and renew hope for the family and local community. It is more than charitable work, it is an investment in a better future for all."

Peter Humphris, Chairperson, IGWR Inc.

With the support of many from around the world, we are achieving so much....

Kids ready for school thanks to sponsors

Single mums are amazing, they sacrifice a lot and work harder than most of us can imagine. However, with our support they can give their kids the opportunity they themselves never had.


Most of our students live at home with mum (usually a one room home), and we ensure the kids can go to school and that mum is supported. In some cases we find new employment for the mum so she can also spend more time with kids rather than seeking to make ends meet. 

Single mums need support so they have time with kids

Some children do not have a safe home to live in.  We have three houses in Kathmandu that provide a family style hostel with resident house-mothers to look after these children during the school terms.

Wherever possible we then arrange for holiday visits to family members even though this may involve travel to remote parts of Nepal.

Setting up a foster home so that a mum with a special needs child could also look after another special needs girl instead of going out labouring all day has proved a delightful model, and has created a beautiful caring family home.

We will extend this model as soon as we have more financial resources as it works so well and is inspiring for us as we what a difference it makes for all involved.

We're currently supporting nearly sixty students in full time education, from primary school through to university.

And we make a difference..

We have graduates that are now working in healthcare (including one doctor and three nurses), banking, hospitality and even running their own small business.

How you can help

Holding hands with the vulnerable

1. Join with us and become a regular sponsor, you'll discover IGWR, you will make a real difference in the lives of the kids and you will discover that we receive something wonderful when we share with others.

2. Make a one off donation or run a fundraising activity to support our work. This again can be an inspiring experience as you join together with others to create a gift for the kids in Nepal.

3. Redirect your birthday and Christmas gift lists to the kids in Nepal. It's also a great way to share the whole idea that generosity creates a better tomorrow.

We have so much more to share about the work we do and how inspiring it is to make a difference and contribute toward a better tomorrow.
