From noon on 3rd December, all online donations to ChoraChori will double in value through The Big Give!

The Big Give Christmas Appeal

Through this year’s Big Give Christmas Appeal, you can automatically double the value of your online donation towards ChoraChori’s vital work with vulnerable and stigmatised children – including child rape survivors- in Nepal. We are inviting gifts towards the operation of our Children’s Refuge and Rehabilitation Centre (CRRC) in Kathmandu. The Centre provides protection, day to day care and counselling support to traumatised children. On the same site we also offer vocational training in tailoring (basic and advanced) and in silver jewellery making to teenage girls that leads into gainful employment. Your gift will help us meet operating costs in the first half of next year ensuring that we can launch into 2020 on the right foot!

Your donation goes towards our vital and unique work in Nepal. We rescue trafficked and displaced Nepalese children from India, child rape victims from Nepal itself and provide rehabilitation, education and training at our centre in Kathmandu. We bring child abusers to justice. You can make a donation using the button below.

ChoraChori receives no government funding in either UK or Nepal. We are entirely reliant on grants and public donations, including gifts in Wills.

ChoraChori’s Mission is to rescue Nepalese children from abusive situations in Nepal and India, manage their trauma and reintegrate them with their families and communities. Where this is not possible, we provide for children’s care, education and training until they can look after themselves as young adults. We bring child abusers to justice.

Since August 2015 we have rescued and repatriated over 200 displaced Nepalese children from India, reuniting almost all of them with their families. This year we have extended our programme to support child rape victims in Nepal where the incidence of reported rape has quadrupled in the past ten years. This has involved offering an innovative approach to trauma management called Theraplay and legal support in prosecuting rapists. To find out more see this recent press article and our Big Give project outline here.
