The Nepali Woman and Children Service Society (NWCSS) orphanage is a home for up to 30 (half) orphans, former street children, foundlings and children who live in adversity due to extreme poverty and/or from single-parent families. They have to deal with all kinds of health problems and issues such as addiction, abuse, neglect or a combination of these problems.
In 2002 a group of women started the Nepalese Women and Children Service Society (NWCSS). Their goal was (and is) to help and support women and children in difficult situations. Their biggest project was starting and running a children’s home in Jorpati in Kathmandu. They started the NWCSS orphanage.
Since then the home moved to another location elsewhere in the neighborhood: at the time no more than a shell of a building. Thanks to the efforts of all involved and outside help it is increasingly becoming the safe haven it should be.
With our support of the NWCSS orphanage, 4 Smiling Faces contributes to the realization of the United Nations (UN) SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
