COVID-19: All children in our care and our team are safe.
From the beginning, VCN made efforts to assist the orphans with donations and college scholarships. These days VCN continues with the same commitment to improving the lives of destitute orphans. Paropakar Orphanage can claim well-deserved credit for many achievements, including the initial inspiration for VCN's social work many years ago. A visit to that orphanage in 1984 inspired two visitors to Nepal who are now VCN board members. From the beginning, they made efforts to assist the orphans with donations and college scholarships. These days VCN continues with the same commitment to improving the lives of destitute orphans. Paropakar was the first social organization and orphanage established in Nepal (1953) and it has managed to continue its service to children and the helpless, but is mainly dependent upon meager donations from the public in Nepal.
The dedicated management team of this organization has served thousands of children through the years and VCN feels privileged to participate in their noble cause with provisions and contributions that directly improve the quality of life for the orphans. Our donations of clothes, educational equipment and supplies, medical care, sports equipment and housing improvements through the years have greatly improved the orphanage environment. Our efforts have provided these children with a feeling of pride in their home and in themselves, effectively challenging the social shame of being an orphan child in an impoverished country. By far, the most essential provision from VCN has been continuing college scholarships for those orphan boys who excel academically and have the drive and desire for higher education. Without further study, these bright young men will have little opportunity and good minds will be shuttered for life. With sponsorship, they have the opportunity to change their circumstances and seek a life of purpose and contribution
