NOH operates four homes (known locally as Papa’s Houses) for 120 children in Dhapasi. An active volunteer program, Volunteer Nepal, draws talented, compassionate people of all ages from around the world. In 2010 over 100 volunteers from a dozen countries served, several returning from the previous year.

Nepal Orphans Home attends to the welfare of children in Nepal who are orphaned, abandoned, or not supported by their parents. NOH provides for the children’s basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing, as well as schooling and health care, and administers to their emotional needs with love and compassion, allowing them to grow up in a nurturing environment.  Our mission is not just to rescue children from abject poverty, but to enable the children to develop and realize their potentials. 

Nepal Orphans Home has a profile on UniversalGiving, an international social entrepreneurship that brings together verified non-profits with interested donors and volunteers. NOH is also listed on Guidestar, he leading source of information on U.S. nonprofits. You can find the NOH profile on Guidestar and our recent 990 forms which are available as public record. 


Accompanying the growth of Papa’s House has been our affiliate Volunteer Nepal, increasing from a handful of volunteers in 2006 to more than 100 individuals from across the world in 2010. Nearly a dozen of the volunteers were returning for second stints. NOH leases a residential house for the volunteers, near the main campus of Papa’s Samanjasya (Harmony) House.

Our volunteers provide important services to the Nepali people including: introducing healthier and more environmentally sustainable briquette ovens to the villagers of Dumrikharka, teaching classes throughout Nepal, offering yoga and music instruction to our children, leading writing workshops, assisting in medical clinics, as well as tutoring Papa’s House children. In 2010 NOH began helping a small Tibetan school for poor Sherpa children.   

Volunteer Nepal advances the NOH mission with committed individuals who bring diverse skills and backgrounds allowing them to serve the poor in Nepal in numerous capacities. The income from volunteer fees significantly contributes to the operation of Papa’s House.
