New Life Children Haven
Tucked away in a remote valley in Western Nepal, far away from the hustle and bustle of modern cities, is an orphanage called the New Life Children Haven. It is here that 23 children have found a home. 30 years ago the desire to help orphans and at-risk children was birthed in the heart of Solomon, the director of the home. After selling his motorcycle, Solomon had the funds to turn his dream into reality. Soon three children were being loved and cared for. Three turned into 12, and at one point the number grew to 40. The children come from various regions in Western and Central Nepal; some of the poorest in the country. These children have been orphaned primarily due to the drawn-out civil war that raged for the better part of a decade. Some are pure orphans, meaning they have neither a father nor a mother, some are semi-orphans, and the rest come from either at-risk families or situations of extreme poverty. These children are the poorest of the poor. At the New Life Children Haven, however, they have a place where their needs are met, where they are loved and cared for, where they receive an education, and where they hear about Jesus. Solomon's focus is to give something, in the name of the Lord, to the suffering. The home is basic, but clean. Five dedicated staffers keep the orphanage afloat, however most of them simply volunteer much of their time. Funds are scarce, so much so that 17 of the 40 children were sent away. At the end of 2008 the orphanage was at the brink of collapse. At about this time Kidstown heard about this orphanage, its background, leadership, and current situation. After an on-site visit to the home in February of 2009, Kidstown's board unanimously voted to give the New Life Children a helping hand by adopting them into Kidstown's sponsorship program. Kidstown's country director in Nepal had this to say about the home: "I count it a privilege to recommend the New Life Children Haven to Kidstown as a deserving case for support. It has the potential because of strategic location and the mix of children from Nepal's poorest districts to prepare believers who will one day be a witness in those districts."
