On Sept 15, 2015, some friends and I founded the association called “Surya Kiran – a sunray for children”. Its name is coming from the Sanskrit words for sun (surya) and ray (kiran). It symbolizes our support for needy Nepalese children. The association is responsible for the maintenance of the hostels ‘Surya Kiran’ which are supervised and coordinated locally by Anupendra Acharya or his deputies. The association also sponsors schooling and professional education of SDB children in different ways.
The hostels are funded by memberships and donations.
