Our Work

Meg’s Children has made a positive impact on the lives of the children in our care.

What we believe

Meg’s Children Nepal believes that every child has the right to education and the right to have their daily living needs fulfilled.

Therefore we support the upbringing of vulnerable and at-risk children in Nepal to help them grow and flourish.

What we do

The children in our care have the opportunity to turn their lives around thanks to the following three programs that Meg’s Children has implemented:

  1. Noble House
  2. Outreach Program
  3. Tertiary Education Scholarship Fund

Noble House

Noble House is a specially built children’s home in Bhaktapur, outer Kathmandu. It is currently home to 22 children aged from 4 to 16, who would otherwise not have stable accommodation with their families.

Noble House is owned by the Siddhi Memorial Foundation, with whom we work in close partnership. The Siddhi Memorial Foundation oversees the in-country practices to allow for the daily running of the home in Nepal. Meanwhile, Meg’s Children provides the finances to fully support the children, as well as the house mothers who look after them.

All the children in the home attend the local Global Life School to receive quality primary and secondary education. Their teachers closely monitor their development and progress, and provide us with regular updates. Additionally, volunteers from Meg’s Children visit Noble House at least once a year.

The Outreach Program

The primary focus of the Outreach Program is to provide financial support for the education of children in vulnerable families, who would otherwise struggle to gain quality education. Meg’s Children and the Siddhi Memorial Foundation are continuously in contact with teachers at school to identify students who have difficult familial circumstances, but who do not live in Noble House. We are then able to support these children with their education costs, such as school books or fees, so that they can remain at school.

The Outreach Program also assists in the reunification of family members, which allows children to be looked after in their own homes. This is consistent with the Nepali Government’s wishes to endeavour to keep children living with their parents or close relatives.

Tertiary Education Scholarship Fund

Meg’s Children believes that education is a basic human right. We therefore ensure that the older children in our care have access to tertiary studies after completing their primary and secondary education at the local Global Life School.

For students who wish to pursue tertiary education, we offer loans through a repayable scholarship program. These loans cover their necessary education fees and costs of living as they develop their careers through university or post-school studies.

Students apply to Meg’s Children Trust for an education scholarship loan, which is considered by the committee for approval. Upon completing their studies and becoming employed, a portion of their loan is repaid at a sustainable rate. This creates an ongoing fund that remains with the Siddhi Memorial Foundation in Bhaktapur, which is made available for other children to assist them in their future tertiary studies.
