Education is the key

To offer education and accommodation is by far the best way to prevent vulnerable children from being sold or used in sex trade. Poverty is the main reason why trafficking is flourishing. Poor families are desperately seeking income and are often forced to do the even the unthinkable. LHFN gives children the opportunity for a future through studies and vocational training at the various student hostels and schools in Nepal.

Due to discrimination against the Badi children in the regular schools, Christian Community School was started 2011 to provide a good education in a non-discriminatory environment. The main school is in Kathmandu, which has a program from Kindergarten to Grade 11, and a branch in west Nepal. A number of the children also study at several other schools and colleges in Kathmandu.
