Today we commemorate one year since a major earthquake struck Nepal. One year on, people are trying to get back to normal. Next week, schools open for the new academic year, but thousands of children remain in need.
According to the Nepali calendar, this anniversary fell yesterday, and so, together with our partner Sathi Nepal, we distributed books, stationary, uniforms, bags and shoes to 150 children - children from vulnerable migrant families, who came to Pokhara from badly affected villages and will be staying here for the foreseeable future. Thanks to our support last year, these children managed to continue their studies post-quake and avoid falling behind a year.
Overall, our post-quake work directly benefitted 2,220 children and adults. From providing emergency support, to building protection and learning centres and temporary classrooms and enrolling children in school, the work we do has enabled some of the poorest children and families to continue their lives and build for the future.
If you would like to find out more about our work, please come along to the Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG, from Tuesday 26th April to Sunday 1st May, opening hours 1pm - 7pm, where you can see "Aftershock", our multimedia exhibition about the earthquake, and speak to a member of the Kidasha team. ...

Kidasha's Jyoti Street Centre is a place children can call their own, where they are safe, can relax, and find the motivation and self belief to build a new future.
To celebrate International Day for Street Children this week, the children held a day of mural painting at the Street Centre, deciding for themselves how they want their safe space to look - as well as having fun expressing themselves creatively! The children used handprints to "sign" the mural which depicts the different services offered by the Centre.

To celebrate International Day for Street Children this week, the children of Kidasha's Jyoti Street Centre wanted to make their voices heard. So they decided to host an open debate on their chosen topic - "Should children be forcibly removed from the street against their wishes?"
Our Jyoti Street Project reaches out to vulnerable children on the street, offering the choice and support to raise their voice and change their situation. Implemented by former street children, JYOTI educators are role models that the children can relate to - people who have been in the same situation, have faced the same problems, and have taken the challenge to move on.
