Building on the Vision
Update from Ramesh Sapkota
As we enter the second half of 2019, I am excited and more hopeful than ever. In recent months, we have made great strides in impacting the lives of more daughters and their communities! We were able to provide increased support for our rescue operations and our emergency shelters; offer tuition support to daughters at risk; support the opening of local businesses for our daughters and stimulate development for projects in their communities.
During Q2 we were able to implement a development curriculum for the second phase of our Social Leadership School. This enables our daughters to discuss and learn more complex topics and agendas allowing them to develop advanced skills beyond the first phase of the program.
With the financial support of our partners, we have established a transit home in Delhi, India (KIN India) that will serve as an immediate shelter for our daughters that have been rescued internationally. This has broadened our reach and has been tremendously beneficial to our rescue missions.
We are now operating 11 border stations and have welcomed 3 additional daughters as border surveillance counselors. We are thrilled that nearly 20% of our staff are daughters that have gone through our program and are now dedicated to working with Our Daughters International to change lives and communities.
The vision of starting our second safe home in Chitwan has finally become a reality! The planning phase of the construction process has begun, and we hope to break ground yet this year. With this, we will increase the capacity of our facilities to 100 daughters at any given time.
I extend my gratitude to everyone who has joined us in this mission. I am grateful for your prayers and financial resources. With great humility and unwavering commitment, we are determined to make an even bigger impact — TOGETHER.
