Thank you to the more than 100 people who joined us for the Virtual Year-end Party last week.
What a special evening!
We have many people to thank: our lovely supporters, the board of directors for coordinating the event, Daniel Thorburn for Zoom production, the HwH girls and staff who helped with the video, all of the talented musicians who provided amazing music, and our hardworking craft sales people.
You can watch a taped version of the Party (minus the crafts sale) here:
Journalist and adventurer, Tony Fletcher has profiled House with Heart in his popular podcast, One Step Beyond. We invite you to sit back and listen to this compelling episode, which includes stories of our origin and the many challenges we’ve faced over the years.
Best of all, it features the voice of one of House with Heart‘s daughters, Manu Shrestha, 22, who took her own “One Step Beyond” to pursue a nursing degree in the U.S. three years ago. Board Chair Colleen Boland joins the conversation to share the story of our history.
You are invited to our first virtual ZOOM fundraising class, Simple Embroidery: Decorate a face mask, Tuesday, July 28 from 7:30-9:30 PM EST. Cost is $40, includes mask and materials.
Our children continue to be at home on lockdown as Covid numbers rise in Nepal. Manager Hem Bahadur Rai has been stocking up on food, general supplies, and gas in preparation for an extended pandemic. The kids are taking their classes online. Thanks to Dammar Bista, the Shangri La School Vice Principal and our longtime partner, who personally administered exams in our garden. We’re looking forward to good results.
Thank you to all who attended this special night!
House with Heart (HwH), a family home for abandoned children in Kathmandu, Nepal is delighted to announce that American composer Philip Glass will serve as the Honorary Chair of the organization.
Mr. Glass has been involved with the U.S.-based charity House with Heart since its inception. His friendship with the organization’s founder, Beverly Bronson, allowed him to witness her tenacity and commitment to this difficult mission first-hand.
“I have the greatest admiration for what my friend Beverly achieved,” Mr. Glass said. “Firstly, by her humanity and her drive to help the less fortunate and, subsequently, for the way she inspired so many other people to do the same.
We opened the doors to the Beverly Bronson Center (BBC) on June 1 . Thank you to our amazing donors!
