Besides that other activity such as Cleaning Campaign, Menstrual Awareness Campaign and Old age home visit are going to be done for the month of June 2018.
The Twin Otters Foundation is registered in Nepal as a Not-For-Profit (NFP) NGO under the Social Welfare Council (SWC), established by individual who himself have been a victim of poverty and drug abuse as a child. The objective of the foundation is to help those children who have been victims of extreme poverty and harassment which let them to the ill ways of life. The Foundation simply enrolls street children in well-established rehabilitation centers and then decide on whether putting them into schools or giving them the skills required for the job industry so that they may be able to make a living out of it. The aim of the Foundation which was to first identify the areas where these kids were living and getting involved in socially responsible behaviors has been met after a thorough field work and research for more than ten years.
Mr. Khem Raj Puri, Founder of The Twin Otters Foundation, said: "All of the children here were street children at first and later they were rescued by the foundation, not just from the city area but also from remote areas such as Morang. Most of them were already the victims of drugs at a very young age when we found them. I myself once lived in the streets of Kathmandu and was luckily rescued by a foreigner who showed me a better way of living, that's what I want for these children, a second chance".
