Traveler Amanda McKay (New Zealand) was trekking in Nepal in 2004, at the end of a long civil war. Compelled to help the orphaned children, who were victims of both the war and extreme poverty, she registered the NGO called Orphan Help Center and began to build a sponsorship base. In 2009, Amanda teamed up with Nepali social worker Indira Ranamagar (Prisoners Assistance Nepal), and re-registered as Firefly Children’s Home (FCH) under the umbrella organisation PA Nepal. Indira and Amanda are a tight-knit team and have rescued over 150 children in their time together.
In 2014, the organisation “Make Learning Possible” was founded by Marion Prost, to represent Firefly in Europe.
Firefly Children’s Home exceeds most orphan centres. The passionate team aim for a friendly family environment with a focus on love, nutrition and education. Do browse our website for more information!
