Initially it was registered as Namaste Children’s House to support housing facility for about 60 orphaned children of Pokhara Nepal. It quickly become evident that there was much more to be addressed, thus the new projects were gradually added. Later, to represent all the activities of the foundation, the board has decided to change the new name Namaste Community Foundation. The old name was mostly targeting the children’s homes’.
