Sewing project

Nepal

In 2010 All Angels Nepal started with various

sewing projects in the remote area of ​​Chitwan for very disadvantaged women. Due to the success of these projects, more sewing courses were set up and Orange Angel decided to support these projects.

On December 1, 2013, Orange Angel started a sewing project (sewing training center) with All Angels Nepal in Lalitpur, a suburb of Kathmandu. A building has been rented here and furnished as a studio, where 32 underprivileged women are trained for 6 months to make clothes, so that they can then get to work themselves.

Most of these women are really living in a hopeless situation. Hopeless circumstances, no means of feeding the children, no hope whatsoever. Orange Angel is trying to do something about this together with All Angels Nepal (the local organization). By giving these women hope and respect again and the prospect of a better future.

After the training, the women receive a diploma / certificate with which they can try to find a job.

From shack to own house

Sri Lanka

Orange Angel has built a total of new 61 houses in and around the town of Kosgoda - about a 2-hour drive south of the capital Colombo - initially for Tsunami victims, later also for homeless families and slum dwellers. These houses were built for people who lived under harsh conditions, often in poor huts, sometimes made of cardboard and palm branches, without clean drinking water, without any possessions and often abandoned by their own population, government and international aid organizations.

Out of sight, often a few kilometers inland, where no relief organizations come. They usually slept on the floor on an old mattress, only had a pan to cook on a wood fire, no work, nothing at all. So hopeless. With all our wealth and opulence in the world, such a thing is simply inconceivable

Micro credits

Sri Lanka

With the Micro-credit program Dammika has started his own company ... Orange angel builds chicken corners for families with no income ... Before a family gets the chickens, they must first visit Dammika. Dammika became seriously handicapped a few years ago; he once drove a tuk tuk as a taxi driver, but when disaster struck he got a large tree trunk on his back, which suddenly fell off a truck. He now has a spinal cord injury and is confined to a wheelchair forever, but fortunately he is still able to raise chickens and instruct families on how to handle the animals.

Own nursery

Sri Lanka

Fruit trees and flower nursery:

Rohan is the father of 3 children and built a beautiful covered plant nursery next to his house. He sells the plants and fruit trees he grows here to people from the area. Business is going so well that he doesn't even have to leave the house because people like to visit him. Rohan borrowed 40,000 rupees (about 300 euros) from Orange Angel and pays back 1,000 rupees every month. He has already paid off most of it early

Own Goat

Nepal

In Nepal, Orange Angel has a very effective project for widows in remote areas. If a woman's husband leaves, there is no income and she is dependent on her family. By herding and breeding a goat or a piglet, we offer these women their own income and the path to independence.

In 2013 Orange Angel started supporting widows in the Chitwan area in South Nepal in collaboration with Project Nepal. If a woman loses her husband, in most cases all of her income is lost and she becomes completely dependent on her family.

To support these widows, we have set up a very effective aid program: the widow gets a little goat or piglet from us, which she can take care of and fatten up. After about 10-12 months, she can sell them well on the local market and use the profit to buy another goat or piglet and live on the rest. The goats and piglets are also bought from private individuals, so that everyone is helped.

Widows are thrilled with the support. Not only do they have something to do, they can survive on their own. That gives them self-esteem and some hope for the future.

Own Eireren

Sri Lanka

Orange Angel started building chicken coops in 2011.

The construction of a good chicken coop costs about 250 euros, including a litter of a rooster and six hens. With the proceeds of the eggs, people can buy food and some clothing.

The chicken coops are built by our local contractor, who also builds our houses. The lofts look nice with a perch and laying trays. During the day the chickens walk outside, because Sri Lanka has a very fertile soil and therefore a paradise for the chickens. The eggs are sold at the local market or at the local hotels.

Before a family gets the chickens, they must first visit Dammika. Dammika became seriously handicapped a few years ago; he once drove a tuk tuk as a taxi driver, but when disaster struck he got a large tree trunk on his back, which suddenly fell off a truck. He now has a spinal cord injury and is confined to a wheelchair forever, but fortunately he is still able to raise chickens and instruct families on how to handle the animals.

How can you help?
For an amount of 250 euros, a poverty-stricken family can be enormously happy and thus contribute to some improvement in their living conditions. For that amount we build a good chicken coop and buy a flock of 1 rooster and 6 chickens, so that enough eggs are laid.

You will receive a certificate with photo of the family together with the hen house.

Street children

Nepal

Shelter for Street Children in Kathmandu

Orange Angel has been providing financial support to the shelter since 2014 and pays the rent annually.

On April 25, 2015, the earth in Kathmandu trembled in a way the Nepalese had never experienced before. A devastating earthquake measuring at least 7.6 on the Richter scale hit the city, which is already accustomed to earthquakes. But no, many had never experienced this before. Buildings collapsed like houses of cards, wreaking havoc all over the city and dead and wounded everywhere. Gerda Oosting, vice-chairman of the Kathmandu Street Children Foundation, was just outside the city on the back of Temba Sherpa's motorcycle at the time of the earthquake. “The first thing I thought was why I get so weird in my head, but Temba immediately shouted that I had to lie on the ground on the pasture. As soon as the weather was possible we immediately drove back to the city, at least what was left of it, because we were very concerned about the children in the shelter. Thank God there were no victims among our children but the home was badly damaged ”.


The foundation led by Lies Vink started almost immediately after the earthquake to build a new and earthquake-resistant house. With the help of a contractor friend from Kathmandu, a beautiful new accommodation has now been built, which was officially opened in May 2017. The home with the beautiful name Thiom Laura Marinka home now houses 91 children, aged 2 to 18 years. Fifteen members of staff ensure that everything runs smoothly in the home. At the time of my visit to the home, only around thirty children were present due to the school holidays. What is immediately noticeable upon entering is the open and positive atmosphere that both staff and children radiate. Everyone is happy and proud to be part of the children's home. The children all have a group bedroom divided into boys and girls areas and grouped by age. There are relaxation areas where children can watch TV, play music or practice dancing.
