SCIF – Supporting Children Initiative Foundation at Volunteer Work Nepal is a small orphanage in Kathmandu – the capital of Nepal. A non-profit social organisation, we house 13 orphans. Our orphans are cared for by a house manager and 1 staff(Ms. Neela), who take minimal wages and help with the children, tutoring, cooking, and cleaning.
Aged from 8 to 16 years old, the children expenditures are fully funded by a group of friends which constantly changes, a core member of the group, and the orphanage’s volunteer work program.
SCIF at Volunteer Work Nepal was first conceptualized by the brother cum house manager of the crippled lady. He started out with caring for only 4 orphans and his sister. Over the years, the number of orphans gradually grew to the 13 children we have today. To get a detailed insight into our orphans, please view our children’s profile.
Our dreams and goals for these children is to put them through university, so that they can get a decent job, and maybe even migrate in the future.
Providing shelter, sufficient food, clothing, a good education, love, and care to these kids (and perhaps more in the future if we can afford to take them in) in hopes that these children will be a beacon of light to the less fortunate children in the future.
Our long term plan is to make SCIF | Volunteer Work Nepal a fully self sustainable one, by linking them to Eyes On Nepal – a Nepal Local Tour Operator owned by one of our full time supporters.
This is an especially important step for us as some of our children are challenged in their studies despite trying extremely hard, hence we are creating job opportunities for them when they graduate from school so that they will be able to support themselves in the future; and perhaps even continue the legacy of the orphanage they once grew up in.
