First anniversary of the hostel!

 

The Club "Surya Kiran - ein Sonnenstrahl für Kinder e.V." was founded nearly two years ago - at Juli 29th, 2016 the first nine girls moved into the hostel. Since then many things happened and in the meantime we already give 14 Girls a home where they can grow and learn. Here they have a childhood without child labor and are safe of early marriage.

In the hostel this special day was celebrated two days long - with an "anniversary trip" to Swayambunath, a big temple in the Kathmandu valley, and on the other day with a big birthday cake.

The hostel was decorated very nicely with ballons and stars inside and outside. To see this brightness, this joy and happiness in the eyes of the girls is our motivation to work furthermore on the quality and the development of the hostel.

Also in the name of our Nepalese partner Anupendra Acharya we thank all the (unknown) sponsors from our heart because without your support we never could establish this hostel and achieve already so much! 

 

Theodor-Haecker-Award 2017 for political courage and sincerity in the Neckar Forum Esslingen

 

The this year's Theodor-Haecker-Award goes to the Nepalese woman Urmila Chaudhary. She is fighting for the liberation, the rights and the education of slaved girls in Nepal (Kamalari System). Because of poverty young girls are sold to rich families where they have to work hard without any rights. There is no chance for them to go to school.

 

Among child labor, early marriage and child trafficking we also want to protect young girls with our hostel project to be sold as a Kamalari.

Welcome new girls!

On April, 18 six new girls moved to the hostel - every single girl with her own painful story. Now we give 14 girls a home where they find shelter and care and where they can learn for school.  For every girl it was a great day and very fast they will be a big family.

This wonderful success is only possible by the support of our members and all the donations we get. Thank you very much!

Start of the hostel

 

Time has come! Juli, 29, 2016 the first nine girls moved into the hostel! It was a great day for all of us and we are very happy, especially for our girls. How it is seen in the picture the joy has no boundary!

Already at the first day all items were placed, the girls played - and they learned! Our partner Anupendra Acharya writes that the girls feel at home already after the first days...

Now these girls have a hopeful future, with enough food, place to learn and play and a with a caring support by a lady cook and a hostelmother.

Once again... thank you to all the members and sponsors, also for the mental support!

 

 

 

Our Team

 

Here is our team: Mr. Sushil who takes care of the girls at the SDB school, Anita, the lady cook, Anita, the hostelmother and Bina Acharya, who works as a supervisor.

Hostel trip

 

As soon as it was known in the SDB School that there will be a hostel for girls our partner Anupendra got many requests from parents and mothers who want to send their daughter into the hostel. It was not easy to select the first nine girls!

At the beginning of July they all made a hostel trip to see their new home. The surprise and joy had no boundary! They  were welcomed by a special Tika and Katha as a blessing and special welcome for good luck, peace and happiness. Then they visited all the rooms and were very surprised about their new home. Probably they never had so much space and especially an own bed in their life before! And they are looking forward to have time and a study room to learn for the school.

After lunch the van brought them back to school. All were "super happy!"

 

 

Current development

 

Our little plant is growing very fast in a very short time! When we established our Club last year in September our aim was to open the hostel in October 2016. Thanks of many members and donations we are able to open already in July! We are very happy.

Thank you to all our members and sponsors!

For a safe way to the SDB School we need a school bus / van for our girls. Therefore we are happy about a continuing support.
