WHO WE WORK WITH
On-the-ground partners ensure rightful allocation of funds and support
To maximise the effect of the funds collected by CHANCE for NEPAL, the charity works closely with a family of carefully selected organisations working on the ground in Nepal. These organisations guarantee that CHANCE’s donations reach those who most need it – and they also provide feedback and recommend follow-up action too.
Christened ‘the ears and eyes of CHANCE for NEPAL’ by CHANCE’s founder Barbara Datson, SHENPEN was founded in 2004 by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche so that ‘All poor and disadvantaged people of Nepal enjoy good health and a sound education and financial security and are able to meet their full human and spiritual needs.’ A volunteer-based, non profit organisation aimed at alleviating poverty, SHENPEN is run by Westerners who live and work in Nepal.
WEGAIN ZONE is an eco-friendly site built mostly using mud, bamboo, bottles and tyres. WEGAIN ZONE provides living space to former streetchildren and trains them in a skill so that they can sustain themselves in future. They also successfully lobbied to get the sale of adhesive glue to under 18s banned. They work with the street children in the Boudhanath area of Kathmandu and take children found on the streets to different organisations in the Kathmandu Valley. They are also at the forefront of campaigning and raising awareness of the dangers of burning toxic plastic and throwing garbage on the streets.
WEGAIN ZONE is a Vegan centre and a peaceful sanctuary offering shelter to street children in Nepal. WEGAIN aims to prevent inevitable abuse and exploitation of homeless children living on the edges of society. In October 2016 WEGAIN successfuly campaigned at Government level to ban the sale of glue (solvent abuse) to children under 18.
