Children of Sagarmatha home


The home opened on 31 November 2002 in the northeast of Kathmandu at an altitude of 1100m. It is supervised by a local NGO and under the responsibility of local staff. Children of Sagarmatha currently welcomes almost 50 children and youngsters. The children generally arrive at the center at the age of 5 or 6. They leave the center at the end of their schooling (18 years old) or later if they pursue their studies.

"Children of Sagarmatha" takes in children with a difficult past; they have either lost their mother or father, or come from large families living in poverty. The center provides them with a stable life and family environment, as well as a complete education. To the children, the orphanage is much more of a family than an accommodation center, and they consider Phinzo and his wife Beena as their adoptive parents.
