Creating Opportunities for Children and Single Mothers
Nepal – Poverty and Child Labour. Nepal is a country with a very high poverty rate and political instability. One third of the population is 14 or younger! Because poverty in rural areas is especially high, parents send their children to Kathmandu to find work.
At the age of 5, many children already work in the carpet industry, in brick factories, quarries, mines, households, hotels, on construction sites or farms. Forced labor, trafficking, and prostitution is rampand and increased considerably after the devastation of the earthquake on April 25, 2015.
More and more children are growing up without fathers as they emigrate to Gulf or Asian countries, mostly India, to earn money for their families.
To help improve the future of these children after finishing school, and give a young ambitious generation a vital opportunity we founded Sachham.
We look forward to your active engagement.

Sachham has been carefully developed, step by step, throughout the past year, up to its orga-nized structure of now. Different situations require different actions. We have been trying to adopt and respond adequately to each given situation. Sachham keeps changing and developing. It has never been the same as it had been a few months ago.
