ChoraChori Nepal

Chora Chori Nepal (CCN) was founded to improve the lives of the most vulnerable Nepali children. From the very beginning, we have provided rescue, repatriation, re-integration, counselling to all the children who have arrived at CCN refuge home along with education or any skill trainings they are interested in. CCN has been working directly in communities since the outbreak of Covid-19 and strongly advocates for home based care that has wider socio-economic impact. Children who are re-united in their society has continued to receive financial, psychological and legal support in their communities on a case-by-case basis. Other than community support, CCN has been actively involved in educational scholarship (bursary) in various schools to the financially poor children.
