Welcome to the new website of Friends of Bandipur, a small group of young professionals working to help provide shelter, safety, education, and emotional and physical support to 13 orphaned or abandoned children in Nepal.
Over the past 10 years, Marcie and Carmen Esau have been in partnership with a Nepali couple in the small mountain town of Bandipur, Nepal. They’ve worked tirelessly to provide hope for these children through all the ups and downs of new additions to the family, renovations to the home, and earthquake scares. Through multiple visits to Bandipur, they’ve provided support, moved projects forward, and maintained a close connection with the children. For more on the history of this project, visit Hope in Bandipur.
Now Friends of Bandipur has added a few new faces to share the load, and make sure the children have everything they need to grow up in a loving and happy home.
We’ll be posting regular updates on the home here, as well as new opportunities for you to get involved, so check back often!
