« Protecting Nepal’s Vulnerable Children »
— The Umbrella Foundation
The Umbrella Foundation is a non-profit NGO and registered charity in Ireland, Holland, Hong Kong, UK, USA and Australia working to alleviate the impact of trafficking, poverty and war on children and their families in Nepal. Established in 2005 in response to the growing number of illegal ‘orphanages’ neglecting children’s most basic rights – food, education, safe shelter, healthcare and love – we are a family-first, children’s charity which has rescued more than 405 vulnerable children with the help of the Child Welfare Board, and reintegrated many back with their families and rural communities. Currently, we are supporting 57 children and youth in our reintegration program, 55 Youth in our NSEP program & and 11 children living in our childcare homes.
Traffickers promise desperate rural villagers quality education for their children in Kathmandu, however, the reality is sometimes different and these children end up in unregistered, often abusive, ‘orphanages’ or displaced on the streets of Kathmandu.
We rescued children, sheltered them in our homes, and reintegrated many back with their families. We continue to care for these children in a holistic way, including supporting their education and overall health.
