#Mission11 at JDUAC, can we make it ?

What else can be expected from a kid who begs for living? Answers could vary. However, the story we reveal here is unexpected.

Mr. Til Bahadur Karki 40, a physically challenged individual has been a source of inspiration to many. Mr. Karki’s mother was forced to leave her hometown just because Mr. Karki was born disabled. He was then brought to Kathmandu by her mother and later on had no option but to beg for his life. He became a beggar and continued begging for more than 20 years around Pashupatinath temple. He had a keen sight and huge determination that he saved all his begging and collected them in a hole dug nearby in Mrigasthali Jungle.


Mr. Til Bahadur Karki, Founder JDUAC

After 20 long years, he along with the help of police and other people gathered and accumulated to a whole sum of NRs 5 lacs, from which he thought of establishing a foster care home for helpless children in Kathmandu. He explained, ‘I could have saved much more, but the currency notes which I collected were rotten during such long periods inside the earth’.

Mr. Karki is now father to 38 children of age 1 to 15 years. He said, children are from various remote districts of Nepal including Kailali, Jumla, Baitadi and more. He has three categories of children there. 5 children belong to the family whose one or both of the parents are jailed, 3 are physically challenged (differently abled) and the rest 30 are orphans who have lost their parents due to 12 years long insurgency in the country and otherwise.

Mr. Karki still begs, but the purpose has now changed. He then used to beg for his life and now begs for the lives and education of those 38 children. He has established a Center for them and named “Joint Disabled UnityAwaz Center (JDUAC). Children live there as a good family and are studying in two nearby schools.
The problem JDUAC is now facing are to run the daily lifestyle of children now. They lack rason to eat, shoes and slippers to wear, stationery to study and moreover fees to pay to the school and house rent too. They lack almost everything, however this is what we have planned for next #Mission11.

They live in a land of 23 Ana, enough space for cattle grazing. To start with, what we’ve planned is to donate them at most 5 kids (baby goats) along with a mother goat. This will assist their lifestyle much. With the funds remaining we can make a small shade for the goats, buy some stationery and shoes for them. We would also like to ask you to spread your hands regarding the donation of your unused outfits/clothes and your children’s books and stationery if you have any. We most probably will be conducting #Mission11 on 26th Shrawan, 2070 (10th August, 2013). We together can offer our labor efforts on the same day to beautify their garden.


Please help us spread the news.

PS : We have had conducted a mission with them previously too. They have now changed their home to Chapali with a different name.
