Happy New Year from all of us at Nana’s House!
Our first year up and running as an organization was incredible. We started a website which averaged almost 500 visits a month, our Facebook page reached over 800 members, and our donations exceeded over $10,000 this year. None of this could be done without the incredible support for you. We were able to carry out some truly wonderful projects during our last two visits to Nepal including a dental camp for 70 children of a rural village on the outskirts of Pokhara, Nepal, a health camp for over 500 residents who otherwise wouldn’t have the means to be able to receive healthcare, where three physicians, a gynecologist, and a pediatrician were able to meet the many needs of the community. Lastly, and very dear to my heart, we were able to continue our support of the eight children of the Nestling Home with nutrition, healthcare,school supplies, and educational activities.
I want to also thank my partners Judy Schumann and Marsaili Vanderhoeden for their various means of support and getting Nana’s House to where it is today. I hope to one day realize my dream of providing social services for unprivileged people of Nepal, a full time job.
So much to look forward to in 2105 including my fast approaching March trip where we will continue our work with Hope Nepal and various community benefiting projects.
Thank you again everyone!

Judy and I just got off an almost 2 hour Skype conversation where we went over our 501-C3 applications and crunched some numbers. We are very close to sending that out and after approval, will allow us to take tax deductible donations. We found out that in the 6 months we have been up and running, Nana’s House has raised over $6,500 in gross income. That’s over $1,000 a month in donations which is AMAZING!
I am also getting very excited as my 4th trip back to Nepal is quickly approaching. I will find myself back in Pokhara,Nepal on August 30th where I will meet with our partner organization,Hope Nepal and discuss our future endeavors of starting a Children’s Home and services for under privileged and at-risk children, I will research building costs, and meet with the board members of Hope Nepal and furthering that relationship. Last but not least, visiting the 8 wonderful children of the Nestling Home and dropping off several donations including vitamins and clothing.
We continue to push forward!

About Nana’s House And Our Goals
What a special night this was! I want to give a huge thank you to my middle school Alma mater, The Harbor School, for presenting me with The Young Alumni award and their very generous donation to Nana’s House. I am very lucky to have spent 3 special years here. Many of the paths I have chosen and goals for the future are founded on principles, lessons learned, and immense personal growth all acquired while attending this terrific school.
I am honored to receive this award and thank you again to The Harbor School for your donation.

Wow, big thanks to our friend Julianna for creating these BEAUTIFUL note cards. She used pictures drawn by the children of the Nestling Home in Pokhara, Nepal. They also come with a blurb on the back about the child that drew the picture.
We will begin selling these soon and 100% of the proceeds will go to Nana’s House
Thanks again Julianna!

A nice group photo of me and all the amazing, wonderful children I have been able to get to know over the last 2 years. They are all in a much better place than they were 2 years ago, whether its emotionally or health-wise. Our project has come to a close in supporting the Nestling Home but we are happy to know they are in good hands, and will be supported and looked after for years to come.
Nana’s House efforts now turn to helping the many children in Nepal who worry about where they will sleep that night or where their next meal is coming from. Our efforts now shift to looking for viable land, and resources so that we may build a Children’s Home to serve these children.
