The Bridge to Nepal project started with the redemption of Nepali families from slavery. It has now become our largest project, involving the building of schools, starting of farms, micro loan projects, and water purification systems. The project is literally affecting thousands of lives and continues to expand each year!
In a region where slavery is a deeply entrenched foundation of society, there were some families who were given a second chance.
Forty–two kaimaya (slave) families in Far West Nepal were freed from slavery when their debt was paid in full to the masters who owned them. By establishing schools and assisting with basic needs, former slaves now have a renewed hope for themselves and future generations. The sustainability of this grass-roots movement is grounded in the relationships built between partners and supporters of this project and the local communities in Nepal that benfit from and participate in the advancement of this work. Relationships are the Bridge to Nepal.
