ULLERI CHILDREN’S HOME.
Five hours travel outside of Pokhara, the village of Ulleri can be found on a popular trekking route for tourists heading to see the mighty Himalayan mountains. It is a small, hillside village, but a very special place for us at Himalayan Life. This is where our Ulleri Children’s Home is located, which currently nurtures and cares for 16 children. Our four amazing house parents commit daily to feeding, educating and pouring into the children in this home.
Children who find themselves in our home come from hard pasts and family situations. Whether they come from places of abuse, neglect or abandonment, the kids find peace and safety from their past in the walls of our home. Watch the film HOME for more information on these situations.
Stories of Renewal.
Our project in Ulleri may be on the smaller scale when compared to some of our other projects, but it certainty does not lack heart or stories of transformation!
A handful of children who once lived in the home have since graduated and live in the surrounding areas of Pokhara where they are working, in the Vocational Training program at the Himalayan Life Plastics Plant, or are in post-secondary education. We are so proud of their achievements and how they are taking on the challenges and joys of adult life outside of the village.
We are so amazed at the work our staff is doing in Ulleri and we continue to hope and anticipate more stories of renewal in the lives of these children.
Some of the oldest kids in the home (above) head off for their 1 hour walk down to school. The younger ones (below) on the other hand, have a quick 2 minute commute to class!
