NYF establishes Day Care Centers for earthquake affected children
We are rapidly expanding Day Care Centers for earthquake affected children in worst hit areas in Kathmandu Valley. Eight centers are already running in full swing benefiting over 600 children between the age of 2 to 12 years. We are working on running altogether 20 centers in the next few days. Children are provided with education, recreation, nutrition and psychological counseling at these centers. With more than 80% of schools damaged by the earthquake in the worst hit areas, it is uncertain how long it will take for over 1 million children to be able to go back to school.
This program is lead by our ECD Manager Sachita Suwal who is running the centers with help from dozens of volunteers. We would like to thank our entire team for their tremendous work and we would also like to thank our generous donors who have made this possible.
