About the author

Who we are:

Inês Alves 27 years old, was born in Oporto, Portugaland she works as a Visual Arts teacher. 

Convinced her parents to enrollin girl scouts of Portugal by the age of 9 and spent the next decade with this organization. 10 years of voluntary work, nights slept in the open fields, sweat, tears and many life-long friendships, helped make this club her second home.These life experiences, not only helped to develop that inner need of being always ready to help the stranger besides you, but also the great joys and benefits that come from travelling. These two virtues combined brought me forward to apply to become an international volunteer. 

Anna Jonker, 27 years old, from Haarlem, The Netherlands. Account manager in a fashion company.

Anna began working 9 years ago in the Dutch Fashion Industry. An industry where she got to grow professionally as well as personally.
At 27, she couldn't asked for more. An admirable job position, a fancy apartment, too many travels to count. But at 27 she also realized how much privileged her life thus far has been, all due to the nature of being born into a very gifted family. Not everybody has these possibilities and opportunities.
With this in mind, Anna has decided to take some time off from her professional and personal life to help and contribute as an international volunteer at the Volunteers Foundation Nepal. 

Volunteer Foundation Nepal founded in 2010 by Lalit Shahi.

The combined effort of Nepali citizen Lalit Shahi and retired UK school teacher Eric Fairman, created: Papa's Home.

Papa's Home is located in Kupondol, a suburb of Kathmandu. It is estimated that there are +/- 4.000 children surviving on the streets of Nepal. Living their lives collecting plastic bottles for re-sale, begging from passers-by and checking garbage bins for something to eat. 

The project Papa’s Home’ was launched on the 1th September, 2012. The home is a small project, currently caring for 33 children. 28 boys and 5 girls. Most of them ar younger than the age of 12. After lots of effort Papa's home has become a focus for helping a few of the many hundreds of street children in Kathmandu.
