************************Dear Lion Richard,
I would like to inform you we had done our Street Children Program at Slum area in Kathmandu on 22 August 2014. I am so pleasant for reporting to you.
We were distributing respectively; Stationary and Sports Materials, Toys and Musical Instrument for the underprivileged students and school which you can see through photos.
I think the photos will more explain to you all better than me.
It was our small effort to take attention Nepalese Lions Clubs for these kind of the area too.
By the way, I wanted to short explain about these projects because why we brought it in the slum area? and why we took long duration for it?
You know that after released our social music video, we wanted to support street children on road but we were not doing it because our board wanted to collect more information about the street children.
Then we were planning to research about the street children so we took a long time for completing these projects.
After long investigation and research we found the major problem of the street children and how to they come on street in Kathmandu Road?
We were able to go to root of this problem.
All of the street children came from the SLUM COMMUNITY because their family was very poor and they were not able to survive daily life properly and full fill the basic requirement of the children.
So, Most of the Children does not go to school because their family could not affordable education expenses and other expenses.
Many of the house hold does not jobs and works.
We found some more critical situation of the adult and senior citizens too.
Not only children came on street but more senior citizens to came out together from these kind of community.
We found lots of the problem in these community like Food, Shelter, Health, Education, Sanitation, Nutrition, Eyes, Play Ground etc., and you can see how many they were taking risk to stay on river side through photos.
Finally, our club decided to cut root of the problem of street children.
Then we were going to SLUM AREA and gave our contribution to children and school.
In that school had not anything and properly setup office, class rooms, toilets, play ground etc. We just gave our small services in that school for brighter future of the underprivileged students and children. We were able to encourage few children to join school and making your quality life through education.
If you have any query about this program and wanted to give more services in that area please without any hesitate you would inform me. I will try to give answered you on time.
