Padma’s inaugural project began during the Maoist revolution in Nepal and focused on securing safe
housing, rehabilitation resources, and school placement for at-risk homeless children. The majority
of these children were displaced by the years of conflict and struggled to survive on the chaotic and
dangerous streets of the Kathmandu Valley.
Over the years in Nepal we have continued to manage children’s homes, sponsor school and food
costs for underprivileged children, operate substance abuse recovery and gang violence reduction
programs, built greenhouses in the Himalayas, delivered thousands of pounds of food to remote
villages, and rebuilt structures following the devastating 2015 Nepal earthquakes.
