All the children in NCF’s orphanage come from very difficult and traumatic backgrounds. The majority of children are from Kaski and neighboring districts, but some have been rescued from the jails in the Rajbiraj, Dhankuta and Kapilbastu districts, the landslides from the eastern part of Nepal and from the streets of Pokhara. Children’s health and happiness is the basis on which NCF develops all values underpinning everyone’s life at Namaste Community Foundation. These children are cared for under our two homes: the orphanage in Lakeside Pokhara and Damside Pokhara, respectively. The home and dedicated staff of NCF provides shelter, a balanced diet, clothing, medical care, education and parental care, security and love. The highest standards of care and cleanliness are maintained so that all children develop healthy practices that will help them in their future lives. The children are also encouraged to assist in normal household duties so that they will grow up to be responsible self-reliant adults. The daily program includes activities such as morning yoga, reading, tidying, school, playtime and guided homework. The work of the orphanage staff is supported by the volunteer program.
