The Kamala Foundation for Women and Children

"The Kamala Foundation’s original focus on grass-roots programming for women and children in prison has expanded to include a broader spectrum of communities. Preventative programs based on the principles of permaculture, embracing appropriate technologies, local solutions and building the capacity of communities to sustainably care for children are at the heart of what the Kamala Foundation does"

About This Cause

The Kamala Foundation’s holistic approach to problems helps the communities it works in to become more resilient to future challenges, creating an environment in which children in Nepal realize their full potential.

The Kamala Foundation's original focus on grass-roots programming for women and children in prison has expanded to include a broader spectrum of communities. Preventative programs based on the principles of permaculture, embracing appropriate technologies, local solutions and building the capacity of communities to sustainably care for children are at the heart of what the Kamala Foundation does.

In 2010 The Kamala Foundation established Nepal’s first Sustainable Childrens Home which grows its own food, produces its own energy and generates its own income allowing it to sustainably care for children. In 2016 we established a second home.

Our Food Security program provides organic sustainably-grown food from local farmers and suppliers for over 140 children through our partner Prisoners Assistance Nepal.

The Kamala Foundation operates Seed Saving programs in three villages with over 100 varieties of organic and open-pollinated fruit, vegetable, legume and grain seeds.

Almost Heaven Permaculture Farm is a resource, demonstration and research center which provides local farmers with the training and resources necessary to become more sustainable.

Resilience Through Recovery is a program designed to address the holistic needs of villages affected by the earthquakes. This integrated program focuses on rebuilding, sustainable agriculture, health, capacity building and livelihoods.

Our Youth Media project enables youth to use social media as a tool to share their stories, engage local and international communities and create growth through micro-enterprise.
