Last day in Nepal – Mitrata

Last day in Nepal – Mitrata

(A blog article by Rachel Laidler on her experience visiting Mitrata Children Home)

On our last day here in Kathmandu, we’ve been lucky enough to get to visit Mitrata, a local children’s home. Run by Nanda Kulu, its inspirational founder, the home provides shelter and education to some of Nepal’s most vulnerable children.


Mitrata Nepal 2014 Report

Dear friends, Mitrata supporters and all the well wishers,


I would like to wish you all a very happy New Year 2015.May this year bring all the desired success and happiness in your life with good health. Year 2014 was quite a challenging year for us as we had to relocate our organization to a new home within a very short time. The children had to be transferred to new school as well.

Mitrata-Children perform for Japanese ambassador

What a show!  I have to give a hats off to Manda, a young and energetic quartet indirectly related to Mitrata-Nepal through the son of flutist and Mitrata instructor Raman Maharjan.  They came on thick and heavy at the 3rd Kathmandu Children Artist Club concert today in Sanepa, driving their youthful brand of Nepali folk into a peak fit to rival the 8000'ers.  My eyes teared up when the flute solo hit.

The show was a success!

Nanda's weeks of prayers and wishes for clear skies on the night of the event seemed to have fell upon responsive ears, for the clouds that evening hung in the periphery of a vivid sky from whose beams of radiance the ancient lines of Patan Durbar glistened proudly.
