Bhimphedi Children’s Home, also known as Bhimphedi Balmandir, is property of Nepal Children Organization. It was founded in 2001 and is managed by Amics del Nepal since 2007.
Bhimphedi is a municipality located in the hill area (at an altitude of about 1,100 meters), about 50 kilometers south of Kathmandu (capital of Nepal).
Bhimphedi has about 1,500 houses with 7,000 inhabitants, distributed throughout the valley where two rivers meet. It was, prior to the construction of the Prithivi highway, crossing point of all imports of goods from India to the Kathmandu Valley. Bhimphedi is the capital of the district and is know a rest and leisure area for the royal family and the Rana ministers.
The center currently has a total of 30 children, but has a maximum capacity of 45. The compound has about 9,000 square meters; 500 constructed square meters, 5,000 square meters of kitchen-garden and a garden of about 1,000 square meters where children can play enjoying the mild climate of the region. A team of five people and the continuous support of volunteers take care of the welfare of the children.
Great efforts are being made from the children’s home in order to find children’s families, ensure a relationship and if possible a reunion.
Through the Children’s Home, Amics del Nepal runs cooperation projects in the village to improve life conditions of its inhabitants and promote the sustainable development and the equal opportunities among its citizens.
