Countries with initiatives

We have selected the countries in which we operate and our initiatives based on precise criteria:
  • A politically largely stable situation to protect investments
  • Personal experience in the countries with very trustful and responsible personal contacts
  • Very experienced partners and partner organizations in social work
  • Working in partnership as the basis for long-term cooperation
  • High level of confidence that lasting positive results can be achieved for the benefit of the people
  • Clearly defined field of action and financial conditions suitable for our organization
We have six main initiatives: Education/Schools, Children’s Emergency / ChildLine, Skill Development, Disability Welfare, Women Empowerment and the Outreach-Program. Here you will find a detailed description of the Initiatives.

In India all initiatives are offered in our project “Keshwa Child Welfare Center (KCWC)”. In Nepal only the education / school initiative is offered. The Explanation per country briefly describes the respective project and the context in the country.

India:
Keshwa Child Welfare Center (KCWC)

Our project in India runs under the project name “Keshwa Child Welfare Center” and comprises a 6-pillar strategy with various initiatives. The excellent partnership and collaboration with the Creation India Society and its founders Dr. Satya Prakash Tiwari and his wife Mala are the basis for the successful work on site. In 2019, we were able to win Hariom Tiwari as program director. He will lead the project operationally in the long term. You can read the overall concept via the following LINK.

The context

In 2015, childcare started in Robertsganj in Uttar Pradesh (UP), the second poorest state in India with 200 million inhabitants alone. Uttar Pradesh as an independent country would be one of the most populous countries in the world, but also one of the poorest. About a third of the residents of UP are still illiterate.
Robertsganj is the capital of the Sonbhadra district with 2.6 million inhabitants: 35% of whom live below the poverty line. 500,000 people suffer from insufficient basic infrastructure such as water, electricity, medical care with far too few hospitals in the district.

The challenges

If industrial work is available, it is very unhealthy and access to reasonable health care is a problem. Life expectancy is relatively low at 67 years.
Today many children have very few rights, lack of access to healthy food, suitable clothing, adequate education and personal development. They are cut off from society, begging, working, selling drugs and falling into the wrong hands. At the end of 2017 we decided to build our own children’s center, which was occupied in autumn 2019. In our work, we have to deal with many challenges and risks.

The solution

Schooling, vocational training, working with people with disabilities, child relief, support for women and local help in the villages under one roof is our comprehensive approach. The unique combination of all initiatives will make a lasting difference in the families in this area of poverty. In our KCWC project, up to 30 people work at full operation, which we recruit from the region. We employ teachers, trainers and social workers with different experiences.

The long-term impact

Our goal is to be a contact point of trust for up to 500 children and juveniles and as many adults as possible in Robertsganj and in the Sonbhadra district. We are also a recognized childcare and training center.
We enable many children and juveniles to have a future that is worth living in by working and treating their families with respect
.
Our motto is: LEARN – EARN – SMILE
“We provide extensive support for people from rural poverty families and minorities. These people are far away from a good education. There are major deficits in health care and hygiene. We are talking about a very vulnerable and needy part of society. There are major challenges with regard to the education of children, disabled children, unwanted children, children of poverty and child labor. We want to ensure sustainable development and are looking for sustainable solutions.”

Nepal:
Winter Schools in Saldang und Nyisal

Our winter school projects in Nepal take place in the two villages Saldang and Nyisal in Upper Dolpo. In winter, 2-3 teachers teach in the schools and there are two people per school as assistant staff to prepare meals for the children. It is not easy to get teachers to teach in winter. That is why the partnership with Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche, the school coordinator Pema Wangyal Lama, and with the founder of the school, Karma Dhondup Lama, is so important. , They organize the provision of the teachers as well as the financial planning and accounting for us. We are also in a friendly and close exchange with the “Friends of Nepal”, who made the original investment in the school building and are now financing the summer school. You can read our overall concept via the following LINK.

The context

Without the support of NGOs, schools would not exist in these most remote mountainous regions in the world. This project ensures daily instruction during the winter period in two schools in the Upper Dolpo villages. The children are trained in general knowledge, the Nepalese curriculum and the Tibetan culture. They have the choice of how and where they want to live their life. We want to give these children a perspective for their future. We have been funding the winter school in Saldang since 2016 and the school in Nyisal since 2019.

The challenges

Especially in winter, almost all villages are cut off from society. It takes 15 walking days back and forth to the next passable road. There are no electricity and very limited phone connections and medical care is very poor. To get there, you have to cross several 5000-meter passes. People can only survive on their agriculture. Children often have to help in summer while missing school.
The only way to consistently deliver education is to run local schools including winter tuition.

The solution

Education investments in Nepal are of great benefit to everyone and the community . Young adults can better organize living conditions and manage agriculture more effectively. They get a better relationship with money and live a conscious life. There is evidence that young women are becoming more confident and dare to ask for help, for example at birth. We fund annual training for teachers to improve their skills.

The long-term impact

More and more children finish primary school and continue their education in Kathmandu. Some stay in the city, others return home as farmers, teachers, medical assistants or in some other important function. This is the only hope for these villages to survive long term as students develop new ideas in agriculture, family planning and community life. It is worth supporting these people, preserving their unique, peaceful and non-violent culture while improving their living conditions.
“Whatever we do, should focus on the well-being of others and do something that really improves their situation.”
