We wanted to communicate our thanks for your ongoing support of our 22 children, who are doing beautifully at our Kathmandu home. If you can believe it, 2018 will mark our 10th year of service!
We ask that you to save Sunday, May 20, on your calendar. Rather than holding our annual fundraiser in the fall as we have in past years, our celebration has been moved to May to accommodate some special guests. We will welcome Chhahari Nepal board members Ranju and Toya Niraula and Uma Parajuli, Chhahari’s resident house mother, who lives at the hostel with her husband Kumar and their two sons. They will visit the United States as the guests of our U.S. board members from May 3 to June 11. These three wonderful people will be our guests of honor at the May 20 event – we are excited for you to meet them!
During their six-week stay, they will see the sights of Southern California, be entertained by friends and board members, and tour Soka University of America in Aliso Viejo. We have high hopes that some of our Chhahari children might attend SUA if they can leap all the hurdles (and costs) associated with applying to an American university.
We hope to see you in May! If you have a special activity you would like to propose for our Nepali guests during their visit, please get in touch with Chris at [email protected]
Every child has potential. Every child deserves a chance.
