KHHI's Corporate Social Responsibilities
KHHI has come a long way since its inception in 1991, expanding its horizon in its line of business and continuing commitment, to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of its workforce and their families. Furthermore, KHHI looks deeper into its social responsibilities and takes one step further to enhance the quality of life of its local community and society at large. We have come to an age where philanthropy is an inevitable part of business, but we at KHHI believe in touching lives of others with care and compassion more so we take our corporate social responsibility heartily and relentlessly aim towards helping and developing our fellow citizens and thus the whole country.
KHHI started its CSR with signing an Agreement with an NGO Baby Life Home working for the children with HIV on the 28th of July 2013.
Safalta HIV Shikshya Sadan(SSS) / Baby Life Home(BLH)
Some of the Children of BLH (in picture)
Safalta HIV Shikshya Sadan is the name of the project of Baby Life Home, a shelter home for HIV infected children. Baby Life Home is the only home in Nepal that has taken the responsibility of taking care of children with HIV. They are given food, shelter, clothing, medical treatment, education etc and more importantly acceptance, love and care and respect which they are deprived of in their own community, and above all the will power to endure in life.
Almost all of these children have lost either both or one of their parents due to HIV. They were left alone or with their siblings to survive on their own. Most of them were malnourished; psychologically disturbed and depressed when they were brought to BLH. But now, they are healthy, going to school and enjoying their childhood, though off course for them it is always a constant battle for they have to fight with HIV.
BLH works to direct a bright future for such children. They do not have regular funding from either government or any other organizations. It survives with the charity and donations from some individuals. They were lately recognized as one of the best shelter homes and were awarded NCRs 50,000 from the Central Child Federation Commitee Pulchwok, Nepal.
KHHI and BLH came into Agreement on the 28th of July 2013 for financial support from KHHI. Under mutual understanding of both parties KHHI gave NCRs 100,000 for the construction of classrooms and further agreed to provide financial support every 3 months. KHHI’s staff also donated clothing, bedding, stationeries and food to children with immense pleasure and shared some very light moments with the children. KHHI after 3 years of regular support completed the agreement however with the commitment we are there whenever we are needed. It was blissful moment supporting BLH. Furthermore, through this very draft KHHI would also like to urge its customers and well-wishers to donate any sum to BLH directly to help this children see a better life which they really deserve and to overcome something for which they have been a victim. You can write to us for donation or you can directly contact them. Please visit their site for further information:
KHHI reflects on the feeling of achievement and pleasure supporting BLH and now embarks its journey towards another field where support is needed desperately. Large number of children are victim of abuse of different forms, more so 1 out of every 10 girl child is the victim of sexual abuse. There are number of organization working in awareness, shelter homes and reintegration programs however there seems to be a need of a transit home where children are kept after rescuing and worked on their mental and physical health before they are reintegrated with their family. KUMUDINI, an NGO has established such center and KHHI now informally supports the center with cash and kind.
We urge our customers that if they know any kind of group or team who wishes to support children in need to link us with them so that the support can be extended for the betterment of children in need.
