“My favorite part of the trip was traveling to the villages and meeting the Nepali people. Being exposed to this Nepali culture, and the peoples’ ability to have peace amidst, what I perceived as chaos and disorder, was so endearing. I think, in retrospect, the trip reframed my life and changed my perspective on what is important and what is just wasted agitation. I believe I am changed by this experience.”
-Susan Scheuermann (Retreat attendee 2017)
Global Orphan Prevention was founded in the summer of 2011 after discovering that 80% of children in Nepal orphan homes had living parents (UNICEF). That first summer was spent investing in farming business opportunities for widowed or abandoned mothers so they could afford to keep their children. The scope has now extended from addressing the orphan trade to including stopping child sex trafficking. Their mission is to keep mothers and children together through economic development, awaresnss, and educational opportunity.
They operate as a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity and all charitable contributions are tax exempt. Learn more: www.GlobalOrphanPrevention.org
