Prisoners Assistance Nepal runs a children’s home in Sankhu, right at the outskirts of Kathmandu, some 26 kilometers away from the city, about an hour and a half rough road drive.
The home is right up in the mountains! So peaceful and serene! Fresh air finally! the kids helped us carry our bags to the home.
The children end up in prisons because their parents have been serving sentence in jail and nobody else is able to take care of them.
When Indira rescues children, they are taken to Prisoners Assistance Nepal’s children’s homes where they get an education and they get to enjoy their childhood. They also learn agricultural skills and how to take care of animals.
Lovely young ladies at the home!
These young ladies is so so cute and love their photos taken!
The kids just love to take photos of themselves! Such innocent smiles! Such cute faces!
The children love to dance to Indian and KPOP music! Indira is one graceful dancer!
The kids started dancing the second they heard some music!
This boy is so cheeky, kept dancing and smiling in front of the camera! One day, we hope to see you on Nepalese telly!
Pres’ first encounter with baby goats!
The kids say their prayers before meals. Indira taught them well!
Dal bhat tarkari is the most typical Nepalese meal. Dal is a soup made of lentils and spices, served over boiled grain, bhat—usually rice with vegetable stew, tarkari. Condiments are usually small amounts of extremely spicy chutney or pickle, very similar to Indian food I would say. We all had chapati, yum!
This young boy next to Pres is very cheeky!
We prepared cotton bags and wrist watches for all the kids at the home! We’re surprised they know how to tell time, even this young lady next to me!
The cake thankfully was enough for everybody! The kids nicely lined up for their share while Indira was slicing the cake.
The kids were all waving at Indira while we headed our way to the other home. They call her Aama; that’s Mother in Nepalese.
Thank you very much, Lila Regmi for driving us to the children’s homes! The best driver in Nepal! As we said, if you can drive in Nepal, you can drive ANYWHERE!
