Feature Project: Shining Stars Children's Home
Nepal is one of the poorest counties in the world. Amongst its population of 30 million, one million are children without parents. Shining Stars Children's Home currently provides a safe and loving home for 9 girls and 17 boys, aged from about 13 to 21 years. The children’s home was opened in 2006 to provide the children with all their needs in order for them to become successful, compassionate adults and contribute positively to their community and country.
