Relieving poverty and hardship for street children (and young people aged 18 and under) in Nepal by provision of safe and permanent housing, food and clothing.
Pegasus Children's Hostel is based on the Eastern outskirts of Kathmandu on the edge of the Sundarijal forest. We have around 90 children and staff living on site.
In 2006 our UK charity raised the funds to build over 40 earth-bag eco-domes on the site which are variously used to accommodate our staff and kids. The eco-domes survived the 2015 major earthquake well, but life has been exceptionally tough in Nepal ever since, with scarcity of goods and rampant inflation.
This charity supports the day to day running of the hostel and supporting each of the children as they grow up within the community. Although there always seems to be something that needs fixing or replacing!
Regular donors and sponsors enable us to send a contribution out to the hostel every month to meet the hostel and schooling overheads. We are committed to securing this funding into the long term despite the current challenging economic environment, and we always need to find new funding to flow into our pot just to stand still.
