- To give children in vulnerable situations access to quality education
- To perpetuate their education
- To protect them from the dangers of the streets
- Welcoming children from disadvantaged neighbourhoods during the day
To protect vulnerable children, La Chaîne de l’Espoir runs 25 day centres providing social and educational supervision, as well as psychological support to the 1000 children who visit them. Families are also implicated and can participate in informational and prevention sessions led by social workers.
- Education assistance in kind
This support which benefits pupils welcomed by the centres consists of the distribution of uniforms and books, as well as school supplies, tuition and examination fees.
- Development of libraries
In 2014 around 12 day centres accommodated by schools in Kathmandu Valley, benefited from a plan to develop libraries. Each was endowed with several hundred books on a variety of subjects and educational games.
- Support in the running of a rehabilitation centre for children from the streets
This rehabilitation centre in Kathmandu mixes education and socialisation. The children have access to artistic and athletic activities as well as general education. Furthermore, they are made aware of good hygiene practices and correct social behaviour. The ultimate goal is a return to family life; however, other possible alternatives include our partner’s reintegration education programme or redirection to an organisation that is a good fit.
