About us

Chhahari, Inc. USA was established in 2007 by Christine Casey of Laguna Beach, California. After a 2004 trekking trip to Nepal, she returned home with an intense desire to help the hungry and sick children she had seen begging on the streets of Kathmandu.

A chance meeting with Mr. Toya Niraula & Mrs. Ranju Niraula during that first trip led to a joint collaboration and an NGO was established by Mr. Niraula in Nepal in 2007. The project flourished for 12 years, helping countless children attain quality education, along with healthcare and opportunities for self sustaining futures. (See page entitled “OUR STORIES”)

Unforeseen events caused this project to close in March 2020.

CHHAHARI INC. USA, will once again lead the way in funding a new NGO in Nepal, CHHAHARI EDUCATION & OPPORTUNITIES. 

Our Mission With A Vision

 

Chhahari, Inc. USA and Chhahari Education & Opportunities Nepal, are dedicated to the education of poor and at risk children in Nepal. Additionally, providing health services and awareness of opportunities otherwise not available in the more remote and underserved districts of Nepal.

"100 YEARS FROM NOW "

"It will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I live in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child."
