namaste Welfare Trust e.V.

Non profit organization



after 24 years of partnership with Nepal support, we are pleased to announce the extension of our statutes to India.

Here we started in 2013 already with the project WIDE - children's home in Tamil Nadu.


WIDE Childrens Home at the holy mountain ARUNACHALA/Tamil Nadu has been in our attention for two years, where we are now, in January 2019, for the third time: WIDE Project


Since 1995 we have been active in Nepal and since 2002 as a recognized non-profit association we support some selected projects with our sponsors and friends with a lot of commitment and love.

In 2005 our association was awarded a prize by the Ministry of Nepal.

Schools in the country offer only very bad quality. Most of these schools are closed during the winter months as it is often too cold. The children come from far away, are often daily on foot up to 3 hours. The teachers are usually not well trained. So only in the valleys - i.e. from Pokhara to Kathmandu - a year-round school education can be provided, and mostly these are private schools, i.e. the parents have to pay for this school education, because the teachers are better trained.

Many children, mostly half and full orphans, only get a chance if they are accommodated all year round in an institute/home, where they are also fully taken care of. This also allows them to get better nutrition, health care and above all better education.

There are pioneering directions that they can take, be it for a basic study of a few years to learn reading and writing and to learn a trade and then go back to their village or to get a school leaving certificate up to the Abitur.

During the long holidays, if there is family or kinship, they often go to their surroundings, usually a remote village, in an adventurous way for us. Sometimes 2-5 day trips by bus, truck and on foot help their relatives, who are of course very proud of this new generation.


Many of our sponsors have been associated with us from the very beginning or for more than 15 years and thus also give young people a great opportunity for further school/vocational training or study. They often sponsor a "new" child.

What counts the most for us are the shining eyes of the children and teenagers and old people whom we have been able to help until now!
