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 takes part in the setting and maintenance of the children’s home ‘Surya Kiran’ which is looked after by Anupendra Acharya or his deputy. The association also sponsors schooling of SDB children in different ways.
The hostel is funded by memberships and donations.

Since our nearly yearly trips beginning in 1991 our love for Nepal and its spectacular scenery will not end. We feel closely connected with its kind people and our friends!
