(Completed) Women and Child Care Center Kathmandu

What it is about

- Together with our project partner Raksha Nepal, we are able to operate a care center for children and women in the capital Kathmandu. Here, women and children who are directly or indirectly affected by sexual exploitation or compulsory prostitution find refuge. Through the training opportunities of the Austrian Catholic Women's Movement, women at Raksha Neal can learn different professions. During their training and the start into a new existence, their children can stay up to 3 years at the care center. The house offers not only a sheltered accommodation but also catering, medical and psychological care.

After the earthquake in 2015, it was necessary to find a new house for the care center. In May 2016 Raksha Nepal was able to move into a new house, although some renovation and reconstruction measures were still necessary. Here, the children can visit a public school nearby and enjoy the countryside due to the rural location. The children are taken care of by a housemother who is supervised by our traumapsychologist to have a better understanding of the children's needs.

Our part in this project

Roots for Life has already provided for all school expenses including Taekwondo and English training, medical care and psychological treatment of the children for five years. Also the renovation of the house such as the children's rooms and providing for the initial equipment for homework desks including personal boxes is financed by Roots for Life. The basic care of the children is partly covered by our sponsors who donate for their schooling places with a regular monthly or annual fee.
