Originally in the volunteer program in care centres in Nepal, children from poor families without access to education and from parents working in the carpet industry were cared for.  These places now also support orphaned children and youth throughout Nepal.  Approximately 500 children are cared for in different areas ranging from nursery school to the seventh grade, ranging in age from 5 to 18 years.

The care centers in Nepal, operate thanks to donations received from charities and private donations, for food, clothing, rent and all expenses of departure, however this is a constant struggle every day.
