“Empowerment Through Education” — Friends of Himalayan Children

Sovha, Kumari, Jiwan and Kumar

Sovha is a seven year old girl who has lived at the hostel in Batase since 2011. Her father died in a landslide accident and her Mother was unable to support the family or to send them to school. When FHC were told of the family’s situation, we agreed to provide a proper education for Sovha and her 3 siblings: Kumari, Jiwan and Kumar.


All four children are now living at the hostel and attending school each day. Without our intervention, their futures would have been bleak.

Many of the children we help and house at the Batase hostel have one or more living parents. Though not all are orphans in the traditional sense, their families are often unable to support or to provide for them.
