Aid Nepal" is an incorporated society recognised by
the German fiscal authorities and a non-profit association that
aims at the promotion of schooling and education of children
in Nepal. The project looks after around 500 children from three
slum areas in Kathmandu. A kindergarten looks after the children
whilst their mothers go out to work and it runs two health centers.
Furthermore all children receive daily a type of milk pudding
with added minerals and vitamins.
The children who had never been to school are taught the alphabet
in our classrooms so that after a year they can go to the state
In addition "Children's Aid Nepal" distributes drinking
water and organizes health advice programmes for the mothers.
Since the big earthquake in April 2015 the society helps the
village of Mudhku near Kathmandu where twenty houses are being
built for the victims of the earthquake.
Our society cooperates with the Nepalese association "Nepal
Association for Children's Care and Education" which has
been founded only for this purpose. The idea for the project
came in April 1989 during our second visit to Nepal and arose
from the wish to give direct and effective help. 60% of the
Nepalese live in utter poverty and we did not want to watch
that helplessly and inactively. Most children are forced to
work from age seven to support their family - if they have one
- and schooling is out of the question for them. In the meantime
20 of the children have reached autonomy, they have made their
high school degree and are now in college.
Life in Nepal is difficult.
The country lies embedded between India and China and therefore
is depending on both. Nepal's most important source of income
is tourism, which brings about big problems such as ecological
destruction caused by imprudent trekking in the mountains. 90%
of the population live in rural areas. The men try to work as
porters for tourists while the women cannot deal with the scarce
crop on their own. Inflation is increasing and political unrest
makes life difficult. After twelve years of civil war fragile
peace was made and the king had to resign from any kind of political
The alliance of the different parties strives to form a government
together with the Maoist rebels and to organise elections soon.
Over 13.000 people lost their lives in this conflict. Still
there is no real security for the Nepalese and tourism has declined
remarkably, both of which makes the life of the Nepalese even
The state schools do not offer reasonable education, which is
why a vast array of private schools with different levels is
thriving and making lots of profits with the fees.
The monthly total costs for the entire project in Nepal are
5000 Euros. Since the founding of the society Elisabeth Montet
herself bears all the costs for information and the visits to
Kathmandu, so the total of all donations goes to the project.
Every four months we issue a newsletter for all our donators,
who will receive quittances for their donations at the end of
the year, because they are tax deductible. Of course we would
prefer standing orders, as they give us more security. However,
one-time donations are very welcome.
In the name of all our children we wish to express our heartfelt
thanks to all our supporters. Everyone, who wants to visit "Children's
World" and the work of our community in the slums will
be received gladly in Kathmandu.
We hope that we can win new "parents" and friends
with this brochure and send you our best regards.

with which we regularly inform about our work and the conditions
