Nepali Orphanage Grain Mill

There is a children's home in the village of Talamarang in Nepal, called the Little Angels Home. It houses 20 children and provides them with a home; a family of kind children and staff, education, full meals, and security. The Children’s Home is a central part of the Talamarang village region. Building a local grain mill will benefit both the local community and also the Children’s Home, helping it to become more self-sustaining. Villagers would save 3 hours walking if the mill were closer to Talamarang--150 houses or more would benefit, and the children’s home would continue to build a positive relationship with the surrounding community. The traditional arrangement in Nepal is that people give 5% of what they grind to the mill (i.e., to the Children’s Home). This means the home will generate fodder for its animals, flour to cook with, and a little extra they can sell for cash to cover food expenses. Total cost is 8-9K and it should produce a value of about 6K annually in grain, not cash, for the Children’s Home. I am hoping to raise $8,000 by early 2018 to get the grain mill built. This is a lot of money, but I am confident that we can raise it!
