About our Home
Firefly Children’s Home (FCH) is a registered charitable trust (CC30432) based in Kathmandu, Nepal.
FCH cares for Nepalese village children whose parents have either passed away, disappeared, are imprisoned or are too poor to feed them. There are 30 Firefly children who live in either our central Kathmandu home or our rural home in East Kathmandu. The aim of FCH is to do more than provide food and clothes for the children.
In a country where there is no social security and the political situation is highly controversial, FCH provides a unique opportunity for abandoned children and orphans to be educated at a private school and to be loved and cared for in a family-like environment. We want to see these children go out and make a difference in the world – the world that is giving them a chance today.
Travellers Amanda Kyne (New Zealand) and Nonna Lamponen (Finland), who shared an interest in helping Nepalese orphans, joined forces in 2004 to establish the Orphan Help Center (OHC). In 2009, Amanda and Nonna teamed up with Nepali social worker Indira Ranamagar (who founded Prisoners Assistance Nepal), and OHC was re-registered as Firefly Children’s Home (FCH) under the umbrella organisation PA Nepal.
Together, these women have created a home for children that exceeds most orphan centres. The tight-knit organisation is small, so a family environment is nurtured. The focus is on love, nutrition and education.
