Sponsor a child

Volunteers Nepal has been supporting Sanu Foundation Nepal, which runs a children shelter home in Pepsi Cola, Kathmandu, Nepal and would like to request any individuals or organization to support the cause.

Sanu Foundation Nepal provides the shelter for the children who were orphaned by the decade long war, poverty and natural calamity in Nepal. Based in Sinamangal, Pepsi Cola Kathmandu, Sanu foundation has given foremost priority in providing the unprivileged children with the best possible education and exposure. Sanu Foundation’s focus has always been the best education, therefore have managed to have the children in the best school in the vicinity and have got overwhelming response through their academic performance.

Sanu Foundation has adopted children and gave them the warmth of care that was snatched from them in their tender age. Most of the children are from the primitive, underprivileged origin. Most of them were unable to speak the Nepali language (regional language being their only medium of communication) but through the quality education and atmosphere now obtain upper grades in their respective classes.
