Tikapur Children’s Home Update: Project Refuge

Construction begins!
The Tikapur Children’s Home has been a place of respite and nurturing for hundreds of children over the years. Its purpose is to provide a home to children who are at risk of being sold as indentured servants or worse, into prostitution. Roughly 10,000 children are kidnapped from Nepal every year. Now, not only do these children have a place to live and food to eat, but they are welcomed into a loving family. In addition, the children are provided with an education.
This year was literally a groundbreaking year for the Tikapur Children’s home as the foundation was laid, and the framing is now going up on the new home (see above). By God’s grace the home will be completed within a year and will be the home to 40 children in need, as well as care takers. We are so excited that the children will have a safe, secure and fun home that they can call their own.Thank you to all those who have helped to make this home possible through donating their time, expertise and finances. We hope that others will partner with us as the Children’s becomes the home to more children, and we look to build similar homes in the region.home
