What we do

Kids in Kathmandu Nepal (KIKN) charity has been set up to provide help and support to orphans and disadvantaged children and young people, mainly living in and around the Kalimati area in Kathmandu.

The Charity’s income comes from the sponsors of individual children, from fund raising events, from grants for specific projects, and one-off and regular donations from its supporters.

Sponsorship pays for the school fees, all the educational materials and school uniforms required for the sponsored children’s schooling.

How your Donation Helps the Children in Nepal

‘Your donation will go directly towards the running costs of 7 breakfast clubs in seven schools in Kathmandu. It costs approximately 20p to feed a child a day’

KIKN was set up as a charity in 2011to help poor and socially disadvantaged children & young adults in Kathmandu, Nepal, to access education. We do this by:

  • sponsoring 24 children through education, including university; and
  • improving basic facilities and infrastructure in 7 schools in the Kathmandu Valley, thus benefitting over 3,500 pupils.

It has been shown that a child learns best when they have had a good breakfast. In Nepal, it also helps to improve access to education, giving these impoverished youngsters better life chances.

Over the years, KIKN has set up 7 breakfast clubs incrementally in the seven schools we support. We feed almost 700 children every school day.

The benefits have been tremendous. The overall pupil population has increased between 20 to 40% in these schools. The schools report better pupil attendance, and improved ability to learn for those children receiving a daily breakfast.

Each year, like all small charities, KIKN works hard to raise funds to continue supporting our school projects. We are passionate about our charity and truly believe in our motto ‘A better life through education.’ Thank You.
