Education

Education

Shenpen Education has attempted to alleviate some of the inability for parents to send their children to school by sponsoring children’s education. The more children we can help get a good and valuable education the brighter the future, not only for them, but for Nepal as a whole.

Street Children

Street ChildrenStreet children who decide to leave street life and return to mainstream society face many challenges, and often end up returning to the streets. However, street life can also be an empowering experience for these children as they have access to income and control of their day-to-day decision-making. The social complexity of this issue and the high stakes involved for the children, demand a carefully considered response.

Elderly

Elderly

With the increasing poverty and lack of viable employment for the young, more and more elderly are put out on the streets or asked to find ways to care for themselves. There are no pensions in Nepal for the elderly that offer them enough to care for themselves. There are no ‘Homes for the Elderly’ that offer affordable care. Shenpen Elderly would like to alleviate some of the burden these elderly experience.

Financial difficulties faced by women tend to impact most heavily on families with the welfare, health and education of children being particularly affected. In order to start addressing this problem, the Women’s Cooperative Society (WCS) was established in 1995 to help poor women form community based savings and loans groups.

Understandably, there are increasingly more and more stray dogs and cats in Kathmandu valley. They are either abandoned by families who cannot give proper care to the babies born to their pets, or were offspring to already existing street dogs and cats. Shenpen Animals believes that when we give proper medical care to animals we are modeling proper approaches to caring for this large segment of society.
