Currently we have ongoing campaign initiated by Founder Campaigner Pandey Kumar, ("Paisa Haina Pahichan" - which means Not money but the Identity in Nepali) is a awareness campaign that is basically focused to those street children who are in street though they get chance to stay at children home due to easy excess of money and food on their street life. People easily give money and food whenever they saw any poor child in street, Instead of money if people know what the best support is for them, long term support like taking them to child care home and children's home this will really brings positive vibes on their face.
This awareness is possible when we do awareness campaign, programs in partnership with government, private sector, CSOs. As Goal 17 encourages governments and the private sector to form effective partnerships .
we also need help from national and international volunteers to make effective contribution to the Nepalese women and children through empowerment specially on Health care, Education and Sustainable Environment
Currently we cannot afford food and accommodation for volunteers but we can book their accommodation according to their choices or they can directly book for it. We can recommend for local community Host family and stay.
Change For Development is currently seeking active volunteers who can create our website and Fund raise . Since it is a new organization we want to connect to different people and communities who are willing to bring change in Nepalese society mainly focusing on children, women and youths through participation. Empowerment to Healthcare, Education and Sustainable environment to them.
