Māyā House


Help us build Māyā House

In Nepali, the word “māyā” means “love”. Māyā House will provide a loving home for up to 10 young girls under the age of 12 who have been rescued from trafficking, or who need protection from high-risk situations. Māyā House is one of 14 new vulnerable children’s homes that we plan to build with your support over the coming years as part of The Pokhara Project. 

You can support the construction of this home by part or fully funding the build. You can also choose to fund the entire building, which will include Māyā House and Āśā House. Every single dollar you give today will go directly to the field—that’s 100% of your gift!

About this home:

Name: Māyā House

Location: Pokhara, Nepal

Who will live in this home? Girls under 12 years old

Cost to fully fund this home: $125,000

Cost to fully fund the building (two homes): $250,000

A place to live, grow and thrive

Overseen by qualified carers, the homes will be a refuge where girls and boys can form lifelong friendships, gain a sense of belonging—and have the freedom to simply be kids, free from the threat of trafficking. 

It’s our Field Partner’s hope and priority that girls and boys rescued from trafficking can be safely reunited with their families. Until this is possible, the homes provide a place where they can nurture their curiosity through formal schooling and grow healthy and strong with holistic health support.

Your support will provide children with more than just four walls.
