Tell us about your partnerships
The Nepal Children’s Organization (NCO) runs the eleven orphanages with which we will be working. Their staff and orphanage directors have been our long-term partners. The Kumari Project’s executive director was adopted from an NCO orphanage. Mitrataa, an Australian organization managing NCO’s largest orphanage, is a partner of ours, sharing with us best practices for improving the well-being, education, and empowerment of Nepalese orphans. In April, we will begin paying tuition directly to schools. This is when we would start developing the empathy theater program in partnership with schools.
