Our story.
I don’t want you to get bored, but I would like to relate our story to you so that you will know more about us and will realise that we deserve your trust. We are endeavouring to always be trustworthy and transparent in our work, so you can have no doubts about what we are doing and see where the money which is donated ends up.
Our story is actually tied to my own personal story. Before settling in Nepal, I graduated with a degree in theology from PDF UMB in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. Later I worked with former drug and alcohol addicts in a hostel in Reading, England. Gradually I got to work with kids who are in danger of human trafficking in Thailand and the Philippines. After this, I settled in Kathmandu, Nepal. This is just a brief outline of my story – if you are interested in reading more, please read my testimony on this website.

After coming to Nepal, I got married to my great wife, Leena Dhakal and together we started our ministry reaching out the street kids in Kathmandu. We treated their wounds, gave them food and chatted with them. We had no money to support ourselves at this point, so our hands were tied in terms of what we could do. (We were living on $120 a month!)

We realised that from a long-term point of view, we did not have much to offer these kids, except some food once a day, some love and the Gospel. We often lost contact with individual kids as they were roaming around Kathmandu and all that remained was a sense of emptiness in our hearts. We hope that we at least managed to do something small for these little ones. In those times, we felt a bit lost and had no real idea about how to help in a more efficient way, but the desire to do something was still very strong. Almost the whole of 2015 I was struggling with how to reach more people with what we are doing. We were supported by a few faithful friends, but there were no real opportunities to partner with missionary organisations, because of their restrictions.
