Christmas presents for Nepali children
Christmas may be in the past, but the presents given to Nepali children in India will make a difference throughout 2016.
This year, more than 200 children of Nepali migrants celebrated with help from INF's India Migrant Initiative [IMI].
Every year IMI and Nepali churches in India, organise a Christmas party for children and their parents. Children wait eagerly for the special day because they receive gifts, sing songs, and enjoy dinner with their friends and families. Each child also receives a practical gift such as a piece of clothing. This year one of INF’s local partners also provided some warm blankets to help the children cope with the harsh winter.
Throughout the rest of the year, INF's IMI will partner with ethnic Nepali churches to support vulnerable Nepali migrants through literacy classes, children's tuition, vocational training, health awareness, and advocacy. The free tuition classes make a huge difference and provide hope to the parents who could not otherwise afford the high tuition costs.
