Nepali Children’s Trust Update

Nepali Children’s Trust Update

The Nepali Children's Trust was set up by Mountain Kingdoms' client, Fran McGowan, in 2005 to support physically challenged children living at the Disabled Newlife Centre (DNC) in Kathmandu. Their mission is to enable children and young people with a disability in Nepal to be independent, to overcome discrimination and have value within their families and communities.

Fran McGowan, the chairperson at the Nepali Children’s Trust has just reported to us from Kathmandu. She says that “the building is working very well and the children there are thriving”.

Work has continued at the New Life Centre since it was built three years ago, including equipping a new physiotherapy unit. The charity has also been able to fund the building of new disabled access toilets at the local school which the children from DNC attend. Other work includes supporting students who have left the New Life Centre in further education and offering help to less academic or physically able children in vocational training and to set up small businesses.

They support children with a range of physical disabilities most of who are resident at the Disabled Newlife Centre in Kathmandu (DNC). Money raised is used to help fund essential salaries, prosthetic limbs & physiotherapy, schooling & further education/vocational training at DNC.


The Nepali Children's Trust is just one of the charities which Mountain Kingdoms supports, for more details see our Responsible Travel pages.
