Rainbow Children Home, Pokhara, Nepal
The Rainbow Children Home is run by the former social worker Ghoma Dhakal and gives a home to children from broken families.
The children live in a family environment and attend private schools.
The VPF arranges individual sponsorships and covers all necessary costs.
Rainbow Handcraft is an NGO, founded with the objective to improve the situation of poor, underprivileged women in Nepal, by providing free training in sawing and weaving. This will enable them to earn an income through subsequent employment which in turn improves the living conditions of these women and children greatly.
The VPF financially supports this project.
