CAN was established in April 2003 and is a UK-registered charity.

Our purpose is to raise money to support orphanages in Nepal of relatively small size (20 to 25 children maximum) with the aim of providing a family atmosphere for the children.

The Trust seeks to ensure that those orphanages that it supports provide high quality education and healthcare.

The Trust’s first project is Laliguraas Baal Uddhyaan (LBU), an orphanage situated in the Kathmandu Valley. LBU was established in 2002 by one of the trustees, Florence Krief, and is home to 20 children (10 boys and 10 girls).

In 2007, we moved to a new, larger house with a larger compound. In 2009, thanks to your support, we started a second home, which will in time welcome 20 orphans (LBU2, 10 boys and 10 girls again).
