On Going Programs

Giving Children Undisturbed Eduaction in the Hostel

These Children come from a remote village in the Everest region. Their parents don't have the means to feed and to educate them. We sponsor their full education. 

We are very proud of our six Hostel Kids who are doing very well. They recently took part in the Kathmandu Inter-School Basketball Tournament and their team won the Junior Boys final-- a well deserved victory thanks to group cooperation and excellent team work. Out of six kids in the team, five were our hostel kids. This is a positive achievement. School feedback also tells us our kids are doing very well in their educational progress and most of them are scoring above average in their academic results.

Sponsoring Day Scholars 

These children's parents can't afford to pay for their education BLF finds sponsors for their education

Besides the children in the hostel we are also involved in the education of 10 other children in different schools in Kathmandu. We provide their full educational sponsorship and follow their educational needs closely. Everything is progressing in a very positive way. 

We Build Libraries in Remote Areas

This is our first library building.  It is almost ready. We have had our fair share of difficuilty trying to get the funds, we still need support to complete it.

We started building our library at the beginning of 2010 and although it seems to have taken longer than expected, we are very close to seeing it finished and ready to use. We have to thank  the very valuable work that our volunteers contributed in these past months and that has made this project closer to happening. They have contributed both their time and good efforts in painting and conditioning the interiors. Now we need to put up the shelving, table and chairs and most important of all: fill those shelves with books. Only then will it be a real library! Our goal now is to get quality books so children can sit and enjoy the pleasures of reading and admiring pictures. A necessary joy for us all!

Student to Student: After School Tuition Class for Needy and Weak Students

This is a very noble project helping many children, we hope to set up many more STS programs all over the country. We need your help.

Our STS Program in Government Schools is gaining speed and we are happy to have three teams already working on it. Soon we will start a fourth team. The fourth team will take place in the library once it is finished, and we will work with the poor children of the area. All together once we reach these last two goals, we will be proud to have 120 students and four Student Teachers benefiting from this program. We already have positive feedback from the school teachers who see real progress happening with the children attending. Also the Student Teachers are able to benefit positively with STS: On one hand it serves them as good training and experience for the future. On the other hand, it gives them enough money to cover college fees. This way everybody benefits with this innovative program.

  • "These past 11 days, I have the privilege of living with James and Apsara and helping with his projects. This experience was priceless and taught me so much. I feel that these 11 days I learned and gained more than could be gained over years time, and more than money can buy in Japan. Most importantly, I’m thankful that I was able to meet and spend time getting to know James Luitel--a man who is living his mission wholeheartedly. Each and every word he speaks is so deep. I learn things on a different level when he says things, even things that I thought I knew. It’s like he communicates with his life and sample; it’s not just head knowledge. These are experiences that I couldn’t have gained had I not come here. James, thank you for letting me be a part of this. -Shinichi Miyazaki (32, from Japan)"

  • "I have come to stay at James' place for 11 days with other five Japanese friends. And it was my first volunteer trip and at first I felt a bit uncomfortable about the weather and traffic situation. But things started to get better when we went to help out in the library which James is now helping to build. We met some really sweet kids there whom are students in the school. They all had beautiful eyes and lovely smiles. They were all eager to get acquaintance with new friends so they would gather around us asking simple English questions, such as what is your name? Where do you come from, etc. Even though most of them can only make short English sentences, their eagerness in communication were expressed through their repeating the same question to different members of our teams or repeating it to the same member once after a while. Not only they hang around out of curiosity or friendliness, they were also passionate and good helpers. There is this girl named Sahbida, age 11, whose house is the closest to the school. She was very dedicated and able to help out on the painting job. Because the doors and windows we were trying to repaint were really old ones, so there were spider webs and cocoons of various kinds stuck on the corners of them. When we caught sight of one of those and let out a suppressed sound of scream, she would rush forward and grab a broom and brushed them all away for us. We were all so touched by that action of protection and courage. When we mumbled our thanks out of embarrassment, she smiled back and said, "You me friends". There are so many details about the kids that we were honored to work with for just two brief days. Some of whom we could hardly remember their names. And when I think about the possibility that I might not be able to meet them again, my heart aches so much. I do miss them and I pray for them all to be able to live their life to the fullest. The kids in James' house are amazing too. Even though we just spent a night along with half a day together, I think we really have established somewhat of a connection. Sojan is smart and quick in reaction. He remembered a couple of Japanese sentences fast and within two hours he could even count to one hundred in Japanese. And he also is my very first, patient and good Nepali teacher. Sadin is the one with the brightest smile. His big bright eyes are enough to make him seem really happy even when he is actually not smiling. Sunil is very active and sincere. He is also willing to try new things. He got really excited to get to know Shinichi san, the only guy on our team, and soon they became as close as brothers. Krishna seems to me the one who does more than talks. He is more of a supporter kind of person than a leader. But I can sense that he is a trustworthy and highly reliable boy. Dhiren is the cutest among boys :) Always keeping silent, always pondering…. well, ok, maybe I don't really know about him. Nisha is the only girl and nobody would doubt about her elegance and beauty even in such a young age. She was not feeling well the night when we met and in the following morning she spent most of the time walking hand in hand with one of our youngest (and certainly the prettiest) member, Maria. Their very presence brightened up our day at the zoo :) So many recounts about the kids. I just wanna say that I really like them and look forward to meeting them all sometime in the future. And I hope I can do what I can to help them in their education as well."
