Devastating earthquakes hit Nepal in 2015, FTEN founder, James returned to Nepal to look for the street children he had befriended on a visit to Kathmandu in 2013. Once he had located them and found them to be safe he joined teams working to help in the recovery from the devastating earthquakes.
After months working with various teams, he went back to Kathmandu. Reconnecting with the boys. These children were of the Dalit caste and of Indian decent. He offered to sponsor them so that they could attend school. The boys took two weeks to give him their answer and when they did, he was surprised by their response. They suggested that this opportunity should be offered to their younger siblings and friends.
He realised that these kids had a chance to escape poverty if they were educated. Enabling them to read, write and do basic maths had the potential to change everything in their lives and others around them.
So, this is where FTEN began.
A small bunch of volunteers, friends and family have helped FTEN create a better life for these children and families living in Nepal.
FTEN has achieved the following in the past seven years:
We need your support to break the cycle of poverty. It can be done by providing an education to the children and by providing skills for their parents.
On average it costs $165 US or $260 AUD to sponsor a child for one years education to attend a public school in Nepal.
Workshop operating cost for a year approximately $1524 US or $2400 AUD
