Portland, OR December (PRWEB) December 23, 2007
Earlier today it was announced that the Nameste Children's House (NCH) in Pokhara, Nepal will benefit in 2008 from the donations from the trekking company ITrekNepal.
In announcing that its charitable giving program the company's founder Leigh Wilson stated, "Giving back is a cornerstone value of our company. From the moment we conceived ITrekNepal we wanted to identify the first charitable beneficiary of our success. We are very pleased that our early success has given us the opportunity to make that decision so soon." The Namaste Children's House is a multi-denominational non-profit that is dedicated to the well-being of needy and orphaned children in Nepal. The stated mission of NCH is to honor the divine living in each individual as they strive to create a loving, creative, holistic, and healthy environment for the special children whose lives they have been entrusted with.
The orphanage was designated as the first beneficiary of ITrekNepal because of NCH's vibrant and refreshing approach to rearing children who others might see as community outcasts.
Operations Manager for ITrekNepal Lisa Colloby has visited the orphanage on several occasions and stated, "The term 'orphanage', for me, sometimes connotes a depressing, old-fashioned institution, inhabited by sad, neglected children, but it was a very different scene that greeted me on every one of the many visits I made to NCH."
Ms. Colloby went on to say, "There is an atmosphere of love and care that one senses as soon as one steps through the door, demonstrated by the smiling faces greeting the visitor with a chorus of 'Namaste'.
ITrekNepal encourages other trekking companies both international and local to find charities in Nepal to support. In addition ITrekNepal assists its own trekking clients to also give to NCH, and gladly arranges visits to the orphanage when its trekking guests come in Nepal
