SOS Youth Facility Bharatpur
SOS Youth Facility Bharatpur is an ancillary project of SOS Children’s Village Bharatpur. This youngest SOS Youth Facility in Nepal was established in 2010 in a rented building at Dharechowk, Bharatpur-9, Chitwan with only 12 young boys from SOS Children’s Village Bharatpur and shifted to its own building at Narayanpur, Bharapur-14, Chitwan in October 2013.
The SOS Mothers Retirement Home in the Village has been used as the girl wing of Youth Facility at present. There are 67 young boys and girls under this SOS Youth Facility by now.
Youth Facility Bharatpur has remained outstanding in leading the young people to dignified social integration and independence. This has been attested by the performance of the youths in colleges and universities in and beyond the country. Likewise the youths have been self-motivated for different humanitarian activities in and beyond Chitwan district.
SOS Youth Facility is solely an extended form of SOS Children’s Village established with the ultimate end of paving the ways of the youths to independent life style. At Youth Facility, the young minds are offered numerous opportunities for their professional and vocational development identifying their inherent potential. The young people are expected to gain practical knowledge in addition to the theoretical knowledge so that they grow into confident adults. As a part of integration in society, youths are sent beyond the district and sometimes to abroad according to their need and abilities. Nowadays, we have been trying to trace the origin of youths and keep them with their relatives or at least nearby for the regular and smooth supervision of theirs.
Merely attaining a heap of degrees is nothing. Our support has to destroy the demon of ignorance and open several avenues for bright future. Most of our youths have been role-models to other students in colleges and universities. Many of them have won jackpots as scholarships for their further studies. It is a matter of pride to share that our youths have made their ways to the prestigious colleges of the United States of America, too. Few of our youths are in engineering while many of them are in Business and Administration studies in different colleges in Chitwan, Kathmandu and Pokhara.
