Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC)
Our first partner organization since 2011. Run by Ms. Pushpa Basnet who won CNN Hero of the year 2012, her Butterfly Home provides a safe haven for children of Prison inmates from all over Nepal.
SFN supports the education of all 23 girls at Butterfly Home.
Along with our annual support , Prabal Gurung has been very active in raising funds in New York for the construction of her new center.
Laxmi Tamang who was in Grade 7 when we first started our support is now acing her BFA class at the prestigious KU School of Arts. We already see her as a great role model especially to all the other younger children at ECDC.
We are equally pleased to see Shristi Sundas thriving in a Diploma Course at the Balaju School of Engineering and Technology.
SFN has started support of the school at female prison in Palpa in collaboration with ECDC.
