The Wheels Of Progress

Located in Hetauda, Nepal, Mamaghar (Uncle’s House) Nepal cares for more than 30 rescued street kids. We have funded a solar initiative, two computers, new, warm bedding, winter clothing, a library, and several impactful workshops with the children at this home. We have also sponsored a monthly food stipend of $350. Wanting to see the home become self-sufficient, we looked to the community for small business opportunities. In Hetauda, there is a 50% unemployment rate and a shortage of public transportation. A private donor has sponsored the startup cost of roughly $4,000 to purchase an electric auto rickshaw to serve as a taxi within the compact city. This entrepreneurial venture will generate a monthly income of $350-$400 a month, thus covering the home’s monthly food costs.
