Little Bells Children’s Home
Little Bells Promiseland Children’s Home (LBPCH)
is a project to help needy children in Nepal to have a home, education, & livelihood
while remaining safe from abuse, vice & human trafficking.
Little Bells started operations in 2016. Since then we have been helping up to 23 children till 2022. This year two have graduated and another 6-8 new children are being enrolled, we expect to have a total of 30 children by end of October 2023. These children are from various regions of Nepal. These children are certified by the social welfare department of Nepal as orphans, displaced (civil unrest), abused (victims of human trafficking), or abandoned (destitute | out of wedlock) children who need urgent help.
We have provided a loving home and cared for them. The staff’s effort to care for the children was attested to with no infections during the COVID lock downs. The children have also performed well in school despite the pandemic. All of them scored within the top 10% of their cohort during the school exams in April 2023. Two of the older children will be commencing college from May 2023. They are given education not only in urban academic skills but also in agriculture, community development, tourism hospitality and trekking professions.
Little Bells Promiseland Children’s Home was initiated in partnership with Mr Tut Mailadai, a Nepali Business man who owns and operates Angel’s Guesthouse for trekkers at Australia Camp (Thulakharka Village) which is 5 mins walk from Little Bells. This project was started in partnership with Mr Daniel Jesudason, who was then the Managing Director of Promises (www.promises.com.sg).
Little Bells is a registered entity under the Nepali Social Agency Department and its finances are audited annually. It is governed by a registered Board of Nepali Directors. It is also subject to detailed social audits by the Nepal National Child Rights Council. A major social audit was completed in May 2023.
