Nepal House Society

Nepal House Society aims to alleviate the suffering of traumatized children in Nepal. Civil war followed by civil and political unrest has taken their toll on the children of Nepal. Children have been on the receiving end of violence, exploitation and a lack of protection from local, municipal and national

Nepal House was established to provide a means for children to heal and recover from abuse, neglect, violence, trauma and the loss of innocence. Through the use of art, play and talk therapy children are given something beyond two meals a day and life in an orphanage that offers little hope to many.

Nepal House trains Nepali Professionals (teachers, social workers, nurses; etc) to use therapeutic means to build connections and support children in becoming whole after a traumatic event has intervened in their lives. These Nepali counsellors in turn provide training and support to orphanage staff, school counsellors and other para-professionals in the community.

Experienced counsellors, social workers and professors from Canada, USA and other countries volunteer their time and pay their own way to Nepal to share their expertise with our Nepali staff.

We have four counsellors on staff and one assistant. We have one main counselling center and two annex offices; one providing support to children impacted by Aids and HIV and another in a more remote area of Pokhara with many at risk young children.

In 2011 we will open the first class of our Girls School to provide young girls at risk a safe place to attend school that will take into account the many challenges that they may have already faced in their young lives.

Become a Monthly Donor

It has been a busy and exciting year for Nepal House Society and our partner, Nepal House Kaski:

  • Close to 40 children are now receiving counselling and support services each week.
  • We recently opened a second office in North Pokhara to support children who are living with HIV and AIDS and a third office in an outlying area of Pokhara.
  • We are in the beginning stages of starting up a girl’s school, having just opened a Kindergarten.

Now Nepal House is seeking a commitment of $10 per month from 150 people to give us the financial stability to maintain our current programs and grow responsibly when the time is right. Will you help us to achieve our goal?

While $10 will probably not noticeably affect your own lifestyle, it will greatly impact the life of a young child in Nepal. Please contact Ashwin Sharma at

The Work Continues.


As we approach the 2 year anniversary of the earthquake that took so many lives and caused so much devastation, I want to remind friends of Nepal House that there is still work that needs attending to. There are still traumatized children and families, people are not back in their homes, schools are still piles of rubble and people are struggling because the cost of items that sky rocketed in the post earthquake and border blockade time have not returned to reasonable levels. I would like to remind friends that Nepal House is continuing to attend to these and other challenges.

Rita's Story


Rita (name changed) was a girl from a marginalized family. She was in regular school for some years but she was not able to continue her schooling do to financial restraints on the family. During our field visit we found her playing and talked to her and introduced our school. Her parents were not ready to send her to Nepal House because they thought she cannot make progress in the school academically because she had been out of school for a few years and they cannot afford for her to study.

Culture and Counselling


Sometime we encounter issues that are culturally strong and challenging to deal with. For example we had two cases in recent months that were difficult, but we managed through use of our cultural knowledge and our clinical knowledge. Both cases were related to historical trauma and the clients were acting out the symptoms that were related to some spiritual and natural power. Both clients had experienced trauma when they were young.
