SHELTER, CLOTHING, HEALTHCARE AND EDUCATION IN A SAFE AND LOVING ENVIRONMENT.
I cannot imagine finer people anywhere. Bimal and his family are completely dedicated to the well-being, happiness and education of these amazing girls. I have found no happier environment and the time i’ve spent volunteering at Moonlight will always be cherished. The World will get back on its feet again, we just need to be vigilant and patient. Hope to see you guys again soon 💕🙏
“It has been a joy to visit Moonlight Children’s Home in 2011 and 2020 and to see what a loving and happy home it is and how much the children are thriving. The Osti family have built a large, caring family where each girl is treasured and encouraged to grow. They are a resourceful community, growing as much of their own food as possible and teaching the older sisters to share in the care of the younger children. I am confident that any support will be well used and commend them to you.”
I have known Ganesh Osti for nearly 30 years, and since 2008 have worked with him and his wife Juna and son Bimal in their resolve to provide a loving, caring home and family for girls from many districts and ethnic groups in Nepal who have suffered the loss of parents and severe social and economic distress. Ganesh has worked hard to ensure that it is at the request of each girl’s local community that she comes into the MCH family, and that she maintains connection with her community as much as is possible. Ganesh is a keen gardener efficiently producing vegetables for the family kitchen, and also keeping chickens It has been a joy to work with Bimal, as manager, in the financial oversight, and to visit the Home regularly and see the smiling, happy faces of girls ranging in age now from 4 to 18, benefitting from good education and a secure loving family home.

Ganesh Osti was my colleague and friend 1991-94 in a women’s literacy programme in his home district in central Nepal. He was an excellent teacher and trainer of local facilitators for the classes. I met him later in Kathmandu where he and his wife Juna were refugees from the civil war raging (1996-2006) in rural Nepal, and they were very aware of many families broken in the conflict and/or by HIV/AIDS, leaving destitute children. They resolved to provide a home for such kids, and the family has grown from five in April 2009 to twenty-five in 2020. Ganesh and Juna are greatly loved by their big family, for their love and care. It has been always a joy to visit the home twice a year and see the happy faces of the girls, growing physically, emotionally, educationally, and spiritually to be strong citizens of Nepal.
