We work with various local organisations in Nepal. We strongly believe that they know the local environment, structure and understand the unique challenges specific to their area. This allows them to distribute resources in the most efficient and effective way.
Little Feet uses its significant experience and skills to build long term partnership with these organisations. By offering support, understanding and compassion we aim to create a brighter future for these children. We operate with integrity, transparency, moral values and high ethical standards.
PROJECT NO 1 – 2015 EARTHQUAKE IN NEPAL
A magnitude of 7.5 on the Richter scale earthquake struck Nepal in April 2015. Facts:
- Nearly 9000 people died, over 23000 suffered injuries
- More than 600 000 homes were destroyed
The strongest impact were in remote and rural areas, devastating the life of the children in these regions. With building destroyed and a lack of basic health care, food and clothing shortages – these problems required a quick response. At Little Feet we provided emergency funds that allowed most affected families to cover their basic needs. Thanks to our partners at Karunika Tuition Center we were able to reach the most remote villages.

PROJECT NO 3 – PARTNERSHIP AND SUPPORT OF CHILDREN AND WOMEN PROMOTION CENTRE (CWPC) IN CHITWAN
Orphans in Nepal are one of the most rejected groups, usually from the poorest and lowest cast. CWPC is a non-governmental organisation that has been registered in the Chitwan district administration office since 2000. They maintain affiliation with the social walfare council in Kathmandu. It was established for the sole purpose of supporting women and children that are socially or economically disadvantaged by providing them with basic education and vocational training.
We had the pleasure to meet Mr Sher Bahadur Sunar the founder of CWPC and his amazing wife.
PROJECT NO 4 – PARTNERSHIP WITH MITHILA WILDLIFE TRUST IN CHILD MARRIAGES PREVENTION AND SUPPORT DURING COVID-19
In Dhanusha district in south east Nepal are the Musahar community, also known as “Rat Eaters”. They are one of the most marginalised and discriminated people in Nepal. Extreme poverty, often disability, Covid-19 impact and child marriages – these are the main problems of this community. Girls, as young as 12, being married despite the legal age in Nepal being 20 years.
Together with Mithila Wildlife Trust we would like to provide an education to both children and parents. This can significantly increase of married age for girls (ideally 18) and empower them to support their families in the future.
