Founded in 1999 by a woman, Lakhputi Sherpa,
Ashah Orphanage is a roof which provides a few deprived orphans with a right to childhood, to education and to love.
Set up as a charitable Foundation under Swiss law by Brigitte and Patrick Susse, Ashah Orphanage has committed to the authorities in Kathmandu, Nepal, to act for the long term, because one does not abandon a child twice in his life.
A small number of boys and girls benefit from a family environment, an education and bilingual schooling in English and Nepalese. These children are either orphans or rejected or even abandoned, sometimes simply because one of their parents is very poor. The youngest, Drolma-Dekyi, was born in 2005 and arrived on the second day of her life. They must be able to count on us until the end of their studies and the beginning of their professional life.
