Initially the association Sukhi Home was started in May 2011 to raise funds to build an earthquake resistant orphanage to the profit of the existing Belgian project Kids Shangrila Home in Kathmandu.
Because of the earthquakes in April and May 2015, Shangrila Home gained so much attention in the Belgian press that they could collect the amount for the new building themselves and took over the project. The former children's home was declared uninhabitable, the children are currently housed in a rented house next to the land in Gokarna.
Sukhi Home gave them the already collected amount of € 60,000 to help them on their way to the construction of the new orphanage. We follow the construction project.
Project managers: Wim De Becker and Dinesh Bandhari

Shortly after the earthquakes in April and May
2015, Bharat Tamang, a handicapped boy of approximately 14, was found
in the street by the Belgian ngo CPCS, a project for the care of
street children in Kathmandu. It turned out
that this boy didn’t have any family left and so Bharat was all
alone in the world.
After a temporary stay at CPCS, Bharat was
transferred to the SERC school where he was sheltered in the hostel
and where he can attend school.
Sukhi Home sponsored an amount of € 1.600 so
that Bharat gets a new chance in a new home and a better life than
the street life.
Thanks to the action” I Run4Nepal in May 2015” with Johan Schots, of which the proceeds were doubled by Sukhi Home, the small school Khari in Dhading, Nepal was rebuilt. An amount of € 6,000 was spent for this cause.
Project manager: Durbajit Kunwar
Participation of Sukhi Home in the reconstruction of the school in Arnakot ,supervised by Prem Bahadur Kunwar. Budget Sukhi Home and “Run4 Nepal” with Johan Schots: € 4500
With the help fund, Sukhi Home sponsors € 3,000 for the purchase of 150 warm blankets that were distributed by Deepak Guring in the mountain villages of Senghethe, and in the districts of Dolkha and Namtar Makawanpur.
Due to the ongoing blockades at the border with India and political mayhem since October 2015, Nepal is still unable to import goods, petrol, gas, medicine and food.
This has enormous consequences: deforestation, children dying of pneumonia, people dying from the cold because they still live in tents or under the open sky with temperatures below zero.
Sukhi Home helps 150 people so that a blanket can bring some more warmth into their lives.
In collaboration with Sancho Sewa Nepal, project managers: Deepak and Dilli Bahadur Gurung.
Sukhi Home sponsors 23 handicapt children who were found in the streets after the April 2015 earthquakes.
They were given shelter in the hostel of SERC (Special Education and Rehabilitation Center) where they now live permanently and receive special education in the SERC school.
We have transferred the amount of € 5,345 to sponsor school cost and clothing for these 23 childrend for 1 year.
Johan Schots, assistant at Sukhi Home, has collected € 6,700, by getting sponsored for running the “20 km of Brussels”.
Because of this fantastic achievement Sukhi has decided to double the amount collected by Johan.
That way 3 Nepalese projects aimed at rebuilding Nepal can be supported even better:
1) rebuilding the local school of Dhading (project manager Durbajit Kunwar)
2) relief help to and restoration of the school of Arnakot (project manger Prem Bahadur Kunwar)
3) sponsoring “girls education” in collaboration of Asian Heritage (project manager Nelam Bastoli)
Thanks to the emergency fund set up after the earthquakes in April and May 2015, Sukhi Home has supported the ,Belgian organisation CPCS with € 10,000 support. This organisation, through 25 programs, reaches more than 1.500 children at risk. The working in these programs has been severely disrupted by the earthquake and Sukhi Home wants to help to get the preventive care up to speed again. Rice, blankets, mattresses and food were purchased.
Project manager:Inge Bracke en Jean-Christophe Ryckmans.
Sukhi Home supported 4 fantastic ladies: Noor Van Weverberg, Inge Bracke, Elizabeth Verbeeck and Anne Vermeulen. They voluntarily (besides their normal volunteer jobs in Nepal) put together so called “Dignity Packs” and distribute them among women and adolescent girls.
These Dignity Packs, that cost around 10 € each, contain 36 items that allow women to maintain their dignity in the extreme circumstances brought about by the earthquake. A pack contains hygiene pads, a scarf, a brush etc… Sukhi Home immediately financed this fantastic initiative with enough support to buy and distribute 500 Dignity Packs. (€ 5,000).
Projectmanagers: Noor Van Weverberg, Inge Bracke, Ann Vermeulen, Elizabeth Verbeeck.
Sukhi Home starts an Emergency Fund and donates € 5,500 to help concretely 34 families of deaf children and their families who are now displaced. With that money Monique Derwig (Chairwoman of the Kumari Foundation) controls, through her contacts in Nepal, the purchase of corrugated roofing for 34 of the tunnel houses.
The corrugated roofing will be re-used for the construction of permanent homes.
Because of the earthquakes in Nepal, a lot of young Nepalese girls lost their entire families and were in the streets. Traffickers took advantage of this sad situation and took the girls to India to put them into the prostitution. Sukhi Home donates € 2,500 to the organization “Free a Girl“ to save 50 young girls from of this terrible fate and to help them come back safely to Nepal.
