Devastating news continues to pour in from Nepal in the wake of their worst earthquake in 80 years and if you’re like many, you want to do something but don’t know where to begin. To that end, I would like to encourage everyone looking for focused connection to consider donating to the Unatti Foundation. Founder and president, Stephanie Waisler Rubin, maintains a home for girls ages five to 18 in Bhaktapur, Nepal which was founded in the 15th century and is located just east of Kathmandu.
Born into extreme poverty, now shining in the classroom, the leaders of tomorrow.
The Unatti Foundation provides education and housing for eighteen girls from diverse impoverished backgrounds. Let us share their stories with you…

Unatti executive director, Ramesh Pradhananga, has been posting updates about the girls’ condition via Facebook when internet access and opportunity appear and as of now, they are all safe although there is likely damage to the Unatti Group Home for Girls. Details are as of yet, unknown. On the evening following the earthquake, the girls were moved out of the home and slept in a nearby field with tents.
I visited Unatti House in December, 2010; I’ve worked with Stephanie and Ramesh and am confident when saying that you would be hard pressed to find two more hardworking, dedicated, and decent people who pour their lives into a cause and make a genuine and positive difference for the girls they work with. I’ve met these girls and it is heartbreaking to imagine children in their situation having to deal with a natural disaster of this magnitude.
Consequently, I strongly urge anyone interested in helping to make a donation online at UnattiFoundation.org. 100 percent of your donation will be in Bhaktapur within 24 hours. Go; donate today and help these remarkable girls and those who care for and protect them.
