Holi Celebration

1st March, Good Time, and Good Event, it was a beautiful spring day  when NECO family celebrated  Ho li. We celebrated the birthday of Sachin as well. He is a friend from outside the orphanage who wished to celebrate his birthday with us. Also that day was the welcome day ofour two new volunteers named Gill and Alison. They are from the UK.

Actually, Holi is the Hindu Spring Festival, also known as the festival of colors. We smeared each other with colors and water. Danced a lot and ate varieties of food, extra foods than usual! Itwas sponsored by the birthday boy. Thank you so much Sachin! Children had a great time!

Here's the photo gallery of the Holi Celebration.


During February and March we have had the unusual fortune and pleasure to  work with so many wonderful volunteers: Crytal, Ellen, Jacqueline, Christina, Anna, Gill and Alison. It is a bounty when we have such magnificent volunteers, and so many in just a few weeks. Gill and Alison still at NECO volunteering. We had a project to give vocational training like dancing (Contemporary Dance and Physical Theater), cooking as well as sewing to those who were doing well academically and were interested in extracurricular activities.

Here's some link to Crytal’s video describing how she felt about NECO.

Chandragiri Visit

On March 8th, 2018, the NECO family was invited to adventure in Chandragiri Cable Car by Sachin, (whose’ family came to NECO Home to celebrate his birthday with the kids). We all were very excited to explore the new technology and to see the panoramic views of Kathmandu Valley and Himalaya ranges from Annapurna to Mt.Everest. But that day was no our lucky day, we couldn't see the views of what we are expected to see due to the fog. Nevertheless, we enjoyed visiting and watching religious and historical place of Bhaleshwor Mahadev that was linked up with the unification process of Nepal of Late King Prithivi Naryan Shah. Besides these important monuments, there are facilities for the kids to play. They played a lot whatever they liked! Also they did horse riding. Enjoyed a lot!

NECO Family appreciated Sachin and his family's time, efforts and interests given to us and thank you so much for giving us such a golden opportunity to visit Chandragili Hills.


Generous Donation

Before going back to America , Crystal donated lots of accessories to girls, sports things like soccer to boys and fruits to all. Also our recent two volunteers Gill and Alison Donated Bed sheets and pillow covers for the kids. Ms. Alison herself made the bed sheets and pillow covers. What a wonderful gift! And she has a plan to teach the kids after their final examination how to do that. Also they brought color pencils, dolls, drones to the kids.
