ROKPA Children NEPAL

ROKPA Children NEPAL

Dreams, that came true.

Children from the ROKPA Children group from Nepal will take part in Brave Kids again to share their culture and tradition from the very heart of the Himalayas. They know very well what great value a family and living in a group are – in a country with such high rate of natural increase, the older children fulfil the role of caring guardians of their younger brothers and sisters, helping them not only with their homework, but also in their everyday life.  Six out of over 2000 children from an orphanage in Kathmandu will come to our country with a young, twenty year old leader, Anju Nepali, who took part in Brave Kids in 2009 and 2010. This way, we will find out how this girl’s life was changed by participation in the first editions of the project. The girl, before coming under ROKPA’s care, spent a part of her life on the street, getting to know its hard rules. ROKPA International is an international charity organisation, which runs 20 branches in the world including Poland and for years has supported orphaned children, showing the world irrefutable proofs that “helping where the help is needed” does bring results. This is exceptionally important in such countries as Nepal, which in spite of its unique natural landscape beauty, still struggles with poverty, sickness, a high percentage of illiterate inhabitants or difficult access to education – 80% of youth between the age of 15-24 cannot read or write, which in a serious way limits their future. ROKPA International is a beneficiary of the Brave Festival, which every year allocates all the income from the sale of tickets to support actions allowing to help, educate and personally develop the children under the care of the organization.
