At the Sertshang Orphanage Home in Kathmandu, 48 children and teenagers, aged 5 to 17, found a loving and safe home. Most of them are orphans, who previously mainly experienced a life of famine, violence and neglect. Few of them were able to attend school.

The orphanage was founded by the tibetan physician Tashi Sertshang and his son Choegyal Rinpoche, who is in charge of. The children are accomodated in two houses with a garden in a serene suburban quarter of Swoyambunath.

The orphanage is managed by two Tibetans, Tenzin Kuntshok, who completed studies in Buddhist philosophy and Methok Lama. They all live together like an extended family, giving the children a feeling of warmth and safety.

Right from the start, they learn to take over responsibility for themselves and the community. The older children take care of the younger ones and they all give a hand in the household and gardening. The orphanage is fully funded by private donations - your support helps to improve their daily lives, their education and guarantee their long-term future perspectives.
