What is the project
Journalist and founder of CWCN Tirtha Rasaili came into contact with the many street children in Kathmandu through his work. He visited the slums and made contact with the most disadvantaged families in society. He saw that mobile healthcare could be the means to identify and support street children who needed healthcare and care. One thing led to another and the organization grew with the children, always asking the same question: "what do these children need?".
From mobile healthcare to a completely new view on streetism (living or being on the streets)
About 15 years later, the reception has grown into a large device of information, health care, empowerment and education. The entire mindset about street children has changed and the successful outreach formula has been embraced by local governments and other collaborating organizations. Based on the conviction that children are most helped by strengthening where they live, activities have been organized that have the widest possible reach; own radio programs with information about education, healthy food and hygiene, health camps, and the mobile health bus comes to the children.
Outside Kathmandu, CWCN also uses these activities to strengthen children in their own villages with education, health care and life skills activities, such as the volleyball4life program. CWCN enables young people to build an independent life in their own environment, so that they do not have to seek refuge in the big city, where they face exploitation, crime and poverty.
Why did Net4kids choose this project partner?
The success of CWCN's approach in recent years has to do with the way in which this organization has grown professionally. Founder Tirtha has played a major role in this and has set up a team of hardworking, passionate and intelligent people. He is described by his staff as "an excellent communicator, has strong management skills, is hardworking and committed to any projects he undertakes." His long-term vision fits in with the way Net4kids looks at how you can structurally offer children an independent and independent future.
