Bright Horizon Children’s Home

A project of the Marlies Kornfeld Nepal Foundation

The Bright Horizon Children’s Home and School provides a home in a safe environment and access to education for disadvantaged children from the Himalayan region – regardless of their religious, ethical and social background.

The approximately 250 children live together in family structures and learn early to take responsibility for themselves and the community.
