Laxmi Pratisthan is a non-profit organization registered under the act of Nepal Government in 2010. Initiated by Mr. Bishnu Gautam as a special tribute to the late sons killed in separate road accidents in within the period of nine months is now a memorial foundation actively intervening diverse programs targeting most needy, vulnerable and poorest of the poor communities from the remotest of the remote parts of Nepal. With its limited resources generated by the personnel donors and well-wishers, the foundation dedicates its services to the people irrespective of country, origin, color, and geography.
Since its initiation, Laxmi Pratisthan is devotedly operational on Health, Education, Women Empowerment & Skill Transformation and Traffic Awareness as four thematic pillars of its vision. These thematic interventions were identified and are being implemented by the experienced members and staffs of the foundation.
Along with the aforementioned activities, currently, the foundation is actively concentrated in Kanda, a village inhabited by the poor, marginalized and underprivileged “Chepang communities”; who are forced to live rigorous life being deprived of the basic and fundamental rights of any common citizen. Considering the issues there, foundation decided to intrude through immediate actions, in an effort to empower the community and to uplift their living through the introduction of socio-economic and educational projects such as reconstruction of homes, agricultural reforms, establishment of well facilitated hostel, facilitation of clean drinking water and health and sanitation related awareness programs.
Current day, Laxmi Pratishthan and its operation at Kanda is able to bring happiness to the ignorant people; making them dream a life of dignity and bring them to the mainstream.

This campaign is conceived with an objective to create the feeling of fraternity in which a capable friend can help the friend in need through his generous contribution and help the Chepang children to get out of their deprivation and poverty by ensuring their basic and fundamental rights to proper food, cloths and education thus enabling them to earn their livelihood as proficient and responsible citizen in the future. Having already accomplished the ambitious project of building the well facilitated hostel in Kanda; our primary challenge now is to run the hostel in a sustainable way. It requires a big sum of fund to run the hostel with provisions, lodging, clothing and accessories for 164 children. To tackle the financial worries, we have come up with an idea in which an individual friend (donor) can assist a sum of yearly expenses for a friend (Chepang children). The yearly cost for one child is $365, which covers his tuition fees, stationeries, food, uniforms/cloths, accessories, accommodation and other hostel running charges. Here below is the list of each child with their general information and background with the photos to whom a donor can sponsor. Your valuable contribution will guarantee a Chepang child his/her access to education.
Kumar Balram Memorial Hostel was established in 2015 by Laxmi Pratisthan to safeguard the rights to education of marginalized “Chepang” children hindered by extreme poverty and geographical situation.
