There are an estimated 50,000 street kids scattered across Nepal in major urban areas. In Kathmandu alone there are some 1800 and that number will have grown by 500 to 1000 more each year. The numbers, of course, are hard to verify as these kids do a pretty good job of losing themselves in the cities. There are three types of kids and all need help. Those living with their family on the streets (no home, no education), those with one parent or both parents who work but at such menial jobs they too are homeless and again no education. And the most unfortunate, those who are kids alone: abandoned, disabled, abused and no where to turn to or go. Their ages can range from birth (given up in the hospital or abandoned under a bridge or along a road), and toddlers as young as 2 or 3. If Butterfly Home can establish a viable program in Kathmandu it is the hope that it can grow nationally. If 50% of these kids could be saved and taken off the streets, it is well worth the effort.

It is Butterfly Home's objective to establish a self-sustaining home for a small group of boys and girls to begin with. We have, now 9 children, 4 boys and 5 girls who need the security of a home and an education. These children are in school, but providing all of the necessary monies for food, shelter, clothing and educational funds is a daunting task. Securing funds is naturally a prerequisite to achieve our objective. Registered as a non-profit organization in Nepal, we hope to raise monies donated to our project by individuals, corporations, and international service groups. It is also our hope that in the future the Nepalese government can donate funds to help us grow and expand across Nepal.
