We are a group of volunteers from around Australia, all of us have been to Nepal and we each share the delightful experience of knowing we can make a real difference to the futures of vulnerable children and families.
We are evolving a new model for sustainable aid, as we understand that investing in a better future for others provides a better future, and a fuller life, for all.
How we make a difference....
1. Being small and dedicated we operate with NO administrative/marketing costs
2. We maintain compliance with 'Best Practice' policies for the benefit of the children
we support and for financial accountability and social responsibility.
3. Our work in Nepal is managed via registered NGO that has a board of nine local women
and the day-to-day operations are directed by Raja (our director) who reports both to the
board in Nepal and to our board in Australia.
4. We can therefore respond to local needs in a local context rather than importing Western
practices/standards that may not so readily translate to local conditions.

Where our support comes from
Like many developing countries, corruption in Nepal pervades all sectors including the social welfare NGO's that are often more about making money than achieving real change.
We maintain compliance with the child welfare board, the local administration office and the central administration authorities in Nepal; and we go beyond with a set of policies and standards that ensure accountability, integrity, transparency and the safety, care, and respect for the children that we care for.
Our policy and procedures manuals have been reviewed by Australian authorities and are compliant with the latest Best Practice policies.
Please ask us if you have any questions about our work and the procedures involved.
