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 and vitamins.
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 school.
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 more miserable.
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
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.
