At Aishworya we care for over 50 children. Many have lost their parents, but others have run away from home, been rescued from trafficking, or have parents who are simply unable to care for them due to complicated circumstances. We strive to reunite as many of these children as possible with their families and loved ones – in the last nine years, we’ve reunited 150 children with family. Where this isn’t possible, we care for our children until they become adults and ready to leave Aishworya. We also support the education of 20 more children who live at home with family. Their parents would not be able to afford schooling without our help.

In 2005 Nirmala Ghimire found two boys on the streets of Balaju; Jeetu (10) and Arun (8). They were hungry, homeless and crying. Arun was very sick so she took them to the hospital.
Local authorities placed the boys in an orphanage and Nirmala visited them often. Soon after she found two more abandoned brothers in Chamati, Jack (9) and Andy (3), and took them to the same orphanage.
A year later the orphanage owner had a heart attack. The children were moved to a different orphanage where they were badly neglected and beaten. So Nirmala decided to set up her own children’s home to care for them. She quit her job as a driving instructor, and sold land to pay rent on a property and provide for the children.
Since then Aishworya has grown. We now provide a home to nearly 50 children. For all children who stay with us, temporarily or permanently, we do everything we can to give them a chance at a happy, healthy future.
