giving shelter to a few

Introduction to Ashraya Nepal

Ashraya (Shelter) Nepal was established in January 2009 to give assistance to lower caste girls in Nepal by supporting their education and providing shelter.

2020 or 2077 in the Nepali calendar

A very bad year for everyone whatever the calendar.
We have just about managed to maintain existing commitments during the year but of course have not been able to raise funds in our usual fashion.
We have to hope that in 2021 we are all able to return to relative normality.
Through our association with Ujyalo Jeevan, an organisation in Old Baneswor, Kathmandu, we are helping to provide funds for girls education. We have other commitments in Kathmandu and in western Nepal.

Our work
A home has been set up in Kathmandu for girls from Dhalkebar in the Dhanusha area that has suffered from the recent political instability.

Funds have been provided directly to schools to enable lower caste girls to continue with their education in the villages we are supporting

Several schools have been given assistance with the aim to support the education particularly of girls by improving their facilities.
