Make a gift: CANDO

Child Action Nepal’s inspirational gifts CANDO allows your gift giving to go so much further than ever before. Our gifts are far more than virtual gifts – they are a range of real life enhancing gifts that will reach the children in our orphanages in Kathmandu.

With your purchase you can choose to send a gift card. The range of unique gifts we supply are dictated by the present needs of our orphanages. We can put your donation to work straight away, helping to transform the lives of the children in our orphanages.

Here’s how it works:
  1. YOU choose a gift, and then complete the form and send it to CAN with your cheque made to “Child Action Nepal”
  2. WE send you a gift certificate and greeting card.
  3. YOU give it to a friend or family member.
  4. THEY have their gift sent to the children at our orphanages
