Welcome to DHC New Life Centre Nepal
The Disabled and Helpless Children's New Life Centre Nepal is a non-profit and non-government organisation established in 2010, with the mission and vision to provide a caring home environment with education, healthcare and the development of the lifeskills necessary to assist children who are disabled and/or without any means of support (helpless in Nepali terms) to become self reliant and independent adults.
The organisation is open to children with physical disabilities, and those children from situations of severe poverty, whose families are either unable to provide the basics of food and clothing, or have deserted their children.
DHC New Life Centre Nepal is home to 13 children at this time, with a ratio of 60% children who have a disability and 40% who do not have a disability. This mix is beneficial to all of the children in our Care House family.
With education as a high priority, the children are enrolled at East-Pole Higher Secondary School. We see it as important for the children to attend a high achieving school where those children who are disadvantaged or have a disability can study and socialise with other students from a wide cross section of Nepali society. This not only provides the best available opportunities for the children, but also assists in changing attitudes of this society towards those who have a disability or are disadvantaged.
We strongly believe that children who have a disability or are disadvantaged, should be given the opportunities to develop their abilities and integrate into mainstream society. This is one of the goals of our organisation.
