Hope for Himalayan Kids (HFHK) Australia is a registered, not for profit, child welfare organization providing assistance in Nepal.
HFHK is dedicated to child protection through a process known internationally as "deinstitutionalisation". Our target group is orphaned, abandoned and at-risk Nepalese children and our goal is for these children to receive the best possible care to ensure their good health, proper development and overall well being.
To date, through our deinstitutionalisation program, we have helped more than 85 vulnerable Nepalese children. We have done this using internationally accepted best practice, including improving living conditions in two children's centres prior to deinstitutionalising; reintegrating previously institutionalised children with family; providing safe alternative care for previously institutionalised children; and assisting vulnerable families to stay together.
We are pleased to announce that we have now closed the two children's homes under our care. As a result, 21 children have been re-integrated with their families, 6 are now in independent living while the remaining 25 are in five family style groups.
We thank our sponsors, donors, supporters, volunteers and individuals who enable us to continue our vital work with the children.
IMPORTANT NOTE: HFHK Australia has severed all ties with HFHK Nepal and no longer has any relationship with this organisation. HFHK Nepal has had no involvement in the recent deinstitutionalisation process where two children's homes were closed and many children were re-integrated with their families. HFHK Australia is committed to transparency in all of its operations and expects the same of its operating partners.
