We are supporting the future of children from Nepal’s prisons!

Nepal
support for education

In Nepal, an orphaned child is deprived of any rights. It is doomed to fight for survival on the street if other relatives didn’t have any heart for them. Could there be anything worse than that? The answer is yes: if a child’s parents go to prison. Then such a child has no future.

This is why Kulczyk Foundation, an international organization headed by Dominika Kulczyk resolved to support organizations which look after children saved from prisons. Each type of assistance counts as long as it allows them to survive and change their lives!

The situation in Nepal might not seem that complex, and yet it is terrifying. The poor struggling to get a handful of rice are utilized by criminals for drug trafficking. They risk and frequently get jailed, as a result of which their children are condemned to oblivion. If they stay at large, all of their relatives turn their back on them. In turn, if they remain with their parents in prison, they will have nothing to eat or drink as the system does not make any provisions for children of imprisoned parents.

In Katmandu we supported two organizations that look after children pulled out pf prisons.  Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) is an organization headed by a fantastic personality, Pushpa Basnet, who has been erecting a magnificent home for children under her care called the Butterfly Home. The other one is Prisoners Assistance Nepal (PA Nepal) managed by an experienced director, Indira Ranamagar.

Each of them know very well the reality of women in prisons as well as all threats which prisoners’ children living on the street have to face: first behind bars, then out of prison. This is why Kulczyk Foundation has decided to provide funding precisely for those two entities: ECDC and PA Nepal. “Across the world, we are seeking efficient organizations which can make a real change in their countries. By helping them, we contribute this change. Because at the end of the day it’s the human being that counts” underlines Dominika Kulczyk, preseident of Kulczyk Foundation.

    Case title
    Pushpa Basnet Director and founder of ECDC

    Pushpa Basnet was 21 when she visited one of Nepal’s prisons as a university intern. She was shocked at the sight of children held in prisons. When she was living, an 8-month old girl grasped her scarf and at that point she decided she could not remain indifferent. She promised the baby’s mother to come back and take the baby with her. From the year 2005 Pushpa has been running a non-governmental organization in Katmandu, called Early Childhood Development Centre. There, she provides prisoners’ children with a house, care and education. They call her “Mamu”, which means mother.

    Indira Ranamagar Director and founder of PA Nepal

    Indira has the longest experience in community work in Nepal when it comes to helping prisoners’ children as she began her activities in 1990. Back then she was 17 years old and could not accept the fact that innocent children had to live behind bars. In those days people were reluctant to see the young girl work with female prisoners. Right now, Indira’s organization runs 5 children’s homes and 2 youth hostels, looking after 450 children. In 2014 she was awarded with the World’s Children’s Prize for her work.

    Laxmi Tamang Girl raised by ECDC

    Laxmi is 18 years old. For the past 9 years she has lived in a center run by Pushpa Basnet. Before that, like thousands of other Nepalese children she had lived with her mom in a prison. Luckily, with the help of ECDC, Laxmi has been able to complete a private school. Now she is preparing for her university exams. She would like to follow the footsteps of her savior and graduate from the same university as Pushpa did. Every day, she is helping out by looking after younger kids at ECDC. Let us hope this girl will be another hero to fight the inhumane system in place in Nepal.

    Sangeeta Parigar Volunteer raised at PA Nepal

    Sangeeta landed in prison as a baby. Her parents’ marriage did not go well as they stemmed from different castes and did not have a son. After the separation, her father kept descending on her mother and provoked rows. At the age of 8, Sangeeta witnessed morbid scenes as her mom and grandmother killed her father. She spent one year in prison with her mom, and after that time she was referred to Indira’s center. Today she is 20 and as a PA Nepal volunteer looks after kids that suffered the same fate.

    Case title
    Parvati Gurung Mother supported by PA Nepal

    Parvati went to prison after other residents of her village accused her of murdering her husband. He was an alcoholic and this is why he died but no one listened to her explanations. Before she was able to prove her innocence, she spent two years in prison waiting for sentencing. She has two children: a daughter looked after by Indira, and a son who lives with her in a house ruined by an earthquake. She is trying to come to grips with her life to provide a home for her kids. She wouldn’t be able to cope, hasn’t it been for PA Nepal.
