LBU: Not an orphanage, but a family home
  • Laliguraas Baal Uddhyaan is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) registered with Nepal’s Central District Office and its Social Welfare Council, in accordance with local law.
  • LBU1 comprises a beautiful house with a front garden and a back yard where the children can play basketball. LBU2 is a few metres away from LBU1 and a little smaller. It also has a courtyard for games.
  • The two houses have been extensively refurbished and have the benefit of a permanent water supply together with nine solar panels that provide hot water to the bathrooms. There is also a water filtration system.
  • The atmosphere is more family-like than in many of the larger institutions funded by international donors. The children receive nutritious meals, have their education and health needs catered for, and are raised in a loving and caring environment.
  • In addition to being schooled locally, the children have a programme of entertainment to help develop their imagination and social skills.
  • Most importantly, we want to ensure that the children have a wide vision of the world and are not confined to the orphanage and its immediate surroundings.
  • A working committee of seven volunteers has been established to oversee the management of the homes. The members have been selected for their competencies as well as their dedication to social work and children.
