Support Program – Feed Nepal

OUR CONTRIBUTION

How it became our mission

After the founder of A Neverending Journey spent 5 months in Nepal he came to realise that the Nepali are one of the most welcoming and giving people. At the same time they’re one of the poorest countries in the world. After volunteering and meeting the ladies from “Feed Nepal’, it became one of his missions to back the ladies as much as he can in a masculine driven environment. The kids need our help, but the ladies do too. More information about our team, the team of Feed Nepal and what your contribution can mean to them can be found on this page. Oh, and thank you for even being here. We know your time is valuable.

FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY

Feed Nepal x A Neverending Journey

Introduction

We are A Neverending Journey running a support program for Feed Nepal. We are in full service and are volunteering for the sake of the kids and the ladies taking care of them. Feed Nepal is an NGO that primarily focuses on providing food for the kids at a school in one of the poorest regions in Kathmandu. If there’s more money, they can provide school uniforms and utilities. Why is that so important? It actually affects the attendance rate at school. Going to school costs money, and if they don’t have it, they rather let their kids be uneducated and put them to work. The parents choose short-term over long-term. Unless school doesn’t cost money. That’s where Feed Nepal stepped in and we’re helping.

WHAT, HOW, WHEN?

Donating & donation status

Fundraising

You can always do a fundraising for these tiny ones. Just get in touch with us and we can always plan a call with the people from ‘Feed Nepal’. We’ll help you come up with a cool idea for fundraising!e always communicate with our partners from Feed Nepal and they ask for a ‘go’ on the things they need. They practically ask us; ‘can we use your donation for school utensils, to buy food, clothing etc… They provide us with heartwarming videos and pictures to show you and us what the impact has been.

For now the fundraising page is not working yet, so it has to be done manually. Here are the full details to make the payment.

Can you please let us know if you made a donation so we can thank you? Once again, €18,50 is a year long lunch, €8,50 school uniform, the more means also salary for the ladies. They REALLY deserve it.

WHAT, HOW, WHEN?

Here’s where you donation goes to

Nutrition

The biggest share of the money goes to their daily nourishment. They are now getting served rice and eggs, of which many kids actually take the food back home to share it with their families. Let us make sure there’s enough for all.

Per month it costs approximately €2,50 per month per kid to provide them with nutritious food.

They went from nothing, to cookies, to instant noodles and now a proper meal as rice and egg. But they depend on people supporting them.

School utilities

These items vary, but one familiar ‘challenge’ is the children not having a school uniform. The uniforms serve as not being able to distinguish who can afford the outfit or not. Sometimes their clothes would even have private parts showing, which is dangerous. A share of the money goes to yearly school uniforms and utilities needed to attend school (pencils, books, notebooks etc…) The uniform consists of: shoes, belt, skirt/short, top, tie and handkerchief). The uniform only costs €8.75 per year.

Supporting the volunteers

They refuse to accept any salary as they only want the kids to be fine. But it is ran by Nepali women who are really working in service of the kids, but we want them to have a break as well. So of every donation/fundraising we want them to, first of all, earn a salary. Secondly, to go spoil themselves with a day-trip, a wellness or whatever they would like to do!

They love coffee, but a coffee is a big treat there that they only get twice a month because it is too expensive.

“If you are able to do something for others, it is a great thing for you” – Ritu’s mother. 

Meet the Feed Nepal Family

Hi there!

Our name is Ayusha, Ritu and Sneha. We’re the three ladies behind Feed Nepal, devoting our heart and time to support the kids of Banepa school.

What made you do this?

Ayusha: My life had never been easy, I had a difficult childhood, and had to drop school for some years. Whatever I experienced in my childhood, I want something different and better for children in Nepal. I know they are a lot of people who need help and are not able to ask for help. I had the opportunity to be at the head of Feed Nepal, after some people from an organisation saw that I was able to work hard.

Ritu: I visited the Banepa school, I met and listen to the kids, I saw how helpless they were. When I saw the condition of the Banepa kids, it hit me hard and made me remember that my mother told me ones: “If you are able to do something for others, it is a great thing for you, not for the others”. So I knew I had to do something for these kids.

Is it hard work and uncertain at times? Why?

Ayusha: Yes it is hard. We have no support from the gouvernement. Sometimes we feel judge cause some people think we shouldn’t get money cause we are doing social work, that we should not do it for a salary. With no money and support it is difficult to respond to the needs of the kids. But I am happy even without salary at the end of the month, Sneha and Ritu stay by my side. And here we are for the kids even in the hardest and uncertain times.
