sponsor a child
VIN aims to sponsor over 200 children from the most marginalized community, orphanage homes and conflict victims.
VIN oversees the full sponsorship (US$230 per year) of many of the most disadvantaged children, including orphans, conflict victims, and children from extremely poor backgrounds or lower castes. Children most in need of sponsorship are identified in conjunction with Head Teachers; Village Development Committees / Ward Chairpersons and a Community representative.
Sponsors can either allow VIN to select a child most urgently in need of sponsorship or choose a child to sponsor from one of the following three groups most in need of sponsorship
VIN currently works with two orphanages in Kathmandu, helping provide destitute children with the care and devotion they need. These orphanages however lack sufficient funding and rely on donations. VIN wants to ensure that all children from the orphanages attend school, and are able to receive a full education, despite their extremely disadvantaged circumstances.
Disadvantaged Children from Very Poor Backgrounds
Due to grinding poverty, many families from very poor communities or lower castes simply cannot afford to send their children to school. Girls in particular in Nepal are often deprived of a full education due to gender discrimination.
