Our Street Our Children is a Non Governmental Organisation formed in Nepal in 2012 to provide assistance to street children living on the streets of Narayangarh, Chitwan, Nepal.
OSOC provides support for street children in three key areas:
Help for street children
Supporting education for children in poverty
Providing hostel for street children
Our Street Our Children (Hamro Sadak Hamra Balbalika in Nepali) was started by Dave and Jackie Britten before they returned from Nepal after working for a year in the local community in Narayangarh, a city located in the heart of Nepal in the district of Chitwan.
OSOC is a Nepali organisation run by Nepalis. It is run by a management committee in Nepal, comprised of members of the local community who want to make a difference in their city. They are all volunteers, the only paid staff are outreach workers who work with the children on the streets of Narayangarh.
Jackie and Dave organise events in the UK to raise funds which are then transferred directly to OSOC in Nepal. There are no administrative overheads and all of the money raised goes to help the children of Narayangarh.
