The relief centre was established with an incident when one of the board members found a child crying at night in frozen cold in Solukhumbhu district during his trip. Then, he brought that child to Kathmandu for education and better future. Immature group of board members registered an organization with uncertain financial incoming. The centre has been running with the financial support of Europeans who have personal relations with board members. In order to raise fund to support children in centre, the founders also sold calendars in Europe, especially in Germany. Because of lack of donation, the centre is not able to welcome more children who are in need of home and school.
The organization has very less administration cost because of supportive board members who are working voluntarily. The board members are very fairly accountable to donors about their donations. Each child is taken care personally by the staff of children home regarding their academic performance, health and moral behavior.
