Aid Nepal" is an incorporated society recognised by the
German fiscal authorities and a non-profit association that aims
at the promotion of schooling and education of children in Nepal.
The project looks after around 500 children from three slum areas
in Kathmandu. A kindergarten looks after the children whilst their
mothers go out to work and it runs two health centers. Furthermore
all children receive daily a type of milk pudding with added minerals
The children who had never been to school are taught the alphabet
in our classrooms so that after a year they can go to the state
In addition "Children's Aid Nepal" distributes drinking
water and organizes health advice programmes for the mothers.
Since the big earthquake in April 2015 the society helps the village
of Mudhku near Kathmandu where twenty houses are being built for
the victims of the earthquake.
Our society cooperates with the Nepalese association "Nepal
Association for Children's Care and Education" which has
been founded only for this purpose. The idea for the project came
in April 1989 during our second visit to Nepal and arose from
the wish to give direct and effective help. 60% of the Nepalese
live in utter poverty and we did not want to watch that helplessly
and inactively. Most children are forced to work from age seven
to support their family - if they have one - and schooling is
out of the question for them. In the meantime 20 of the children
have reached autonomy, they have made their high school degree
and are now in college.
Life in Nepal is difficult.
The country lies embedded between India and China and therefore
is depending on both. Nepal's most important source of income
is tourism, which brings about big problems such as ecological
destruction caused by imprudent trekking in the mountains. 90%
of the population live in rural areas. The men try to work as
porters for tourists while the women cannot deal with the scarce
crop on their own. Inflation is increasing and political unrest
makes life difficult. After twelve years of civil war fragile
peace was made and the king had to resign from any kind of political
The alliance of the different parties strives to form a government
together with the Maoist rebels and to organise elections soon.
Over 13.000 people lost their lives in this conflict. Still there
is no real security for the Nepalese and tourism has declined
remarkably, both of which makes the life of the Nepalese even
The state schools do not offer reasonable education, which is
why a vast array of private schools with different levels is thriving
and making lots of profits with the fees.
The monthly total costs for the entire project in Nepal are 5000
Euros. Since the founding of the society Elisabeth Montet herself
bears all the costs for information and the visits to Kathmandu,
so the total of all donations goes to the project.
Every four months we issue a newsletter for all our donators,
who will receive quittances for their donations at the end of
the year, because they are tax deductible. Of course we would
prefer standing orders, as they give us more security. However,
one-time donations are very welcome.
In the name of all our children we wish to express our heartfelt
thanks to all our supporters. Everyone, who wants to visit "Children's
World" and the work of our community in the slums will be
received gladly in Kathmandu.
We hope that we can win new "parents" and friends with
this brochure and send you our best regards.
