The orphanage is home to 44 children and is situated in Lakeside. Pokhara is a 7 hour bus trip or a 25 minute flight from Nepal’s capital Kathmandu. The Children range from 2 years old to 18 years old, they come from all over Nepal and have each experienced some horrifying events as children.

Testimonial from IBSH volunteer: Jarrad Freakley
“Visiting Nepal has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. The town of Pokhara is a one of a kind place with the most welcoming and warm people living within it. Whilst in this magnificent part of the world not only do you have some of the most spectacular scenery right at your doorstep, but you also have the opportunity to spend time with some amazing kids within the various orphanages. With the help of Josh and the IBSH family i had a chance to spend time connecting and bonding with the kids at the Namaste Childrens House! The thing about these children which will forever astound me in the way most of these kids have experienced more trauma and adversity than anyone should ever have to, and at such a young age, but have overcome and matured into the most happy and intelligent children I’ve ever seen. Every single morning you walk through those doors you are greeted with smiles from ear to ear from all the children, an experience that not only warms your heart but makes you never want to leave. From helping to prepare the childrens dinner, to playing a game of soccer at the local park, to helping the children study and further their education, there is never nothing to do with these unique, bright young men and women. Nepal has changed me, the children have inspired me, i feel i have become a better human being from simply being around the kids of Namaste Children’s House and it is why i am forever grateful for the opportunity Josh and the IBSH have given me.”
