Home of Hope is one of the Lööf Foundation projects abroad. It is the name of a family home the foundation built for children in need in Nepal. However the powerful earthquakes that hit the country in May of 2015 destroyed it. The Lööf Foundation has rebuilt it, and currently 14 children live there, and now have a new home and good care.

 

Background of Home of Hope

The idea of the family home in Nepal first originated at a Buddhist retreat in Mundekulla in Småland, Sweden. Sophie had signed up to attend a lecture held by a Tibetan monk by the name of Geshe Pema Dorjee Lama who works closely with his holiness the Dalai Lama. During the lecture, Pema spoke about different aid projects in the mountains of Nepal that he was engaged in. He expressed to Sophie that he had been searching for someone to sponsor a home for Nepalese children who were in need of love, nurturing, and a home. Sophie exclaimed that she would love to sponsor them! Shortly after the retreat, Pema and his friend were in Gullspång for a meeting with Sophie. It was agreed that a family home would be built in the village of Ratankot, just 5-6 hours outside of Kathmandu. It was foreseen that the family home would care for children who would receive a roof over their head, good medical care and a staff that will take care of them 24/7. The long-term goal for the children is that they will gain the knowledge and support they need to become self-sufficient adults.

 

The name “Home of Hope”

Sophie Lööf thought up the creation of the name “Home of Hope”, after many travels to India, and supporting underprivileged children. Young children and youth had always been close to her heart, as she had seen so many children growing up in poor conditions. She always had dreams of creating a safe haven for children growing up with immense needs. The name “Home of Hope” just naturally popped into her head one day. This was just the beginning!

 

How are the children after moving in?

The inauguration of Home of Hope was held on April 30, 2016. The day was filled with so much happiness and joy from the villagers, but especially by the children of Home of Hope, as they were all moved in! Since moving in, all of the children have gained weight, grown taller, and performed better in school. They all follow a chore chart throughout the day that is divided equally among all children. Their skin has cleared up from a nutritious diet and their eyes now sparkle! Each of the children have their individual goals and dreams that they are working towards. We have built a chicken house and greenhouse beside Home of Hope to give the children a sustainable source of food. At the same time it teaches them the skills and knowledge they need to know on how to properly raise animals and grow food, so that they may be self sufficient in their futures. We felt it necessary to install a fridge, washing machine, solar panel and solar water tank. These items allow Home of Hope to run smoother and quicker for the children, housemother Asha and housefather Shyam!

Home of chickens

We built a chicken house next to Home of Hope in May 2017, with the great help and donation from representative Monica Hellström. The chicken house is built from brick, cement, bamboo, iron, and a tin roof. The chickens have a gated area outside to play, eat and be. Inside the chicken house they have baskets to lay eggs in, pieces of bamboo to perch on and rice shavings to roll in.

The chicken house has roosters, hens and baby chickens. Most days the children can gather 4-5 eggs per day. The chicken house has been a great asset for Home of Hope so that the children can learn how to properly raise animals and raise their own food so that they can continue to be self-sufficient. We feel it is so important for the children to learn this at a young age, so that when they grow up, they will have the knowledge.

 

Home of Hope greenhouse

We built a greenhouse next to Home of Hope in Feb 2017 so that the children can learn how to grow their own food and be self-sufficient. It’s important that they learn how to grow and harvest, and also be able to rely on themselves for food. The greenhouse is standing tall, and inside they have been able to grow garlic, onion, coriander, tumeric, ginger, carrots, beans, spinach, peas, chili, tomato, eggplants, mustard, and squash. The greenhouse is still in great condition and providing different types of vegetables for the children. In just five minutes, a child can gather half of Home of Hope’s meal by collecting fresh produce inside the greenhouse.

We planted citrus trees such as kiwi, lemon and orange. One of the orange trees has been planted inside the greenhouse and is growing taller and bigger than the other orange tree that is planted outside of the greenhouse. None of the citrus trees have produced fruit yet, as they still need to grow for another 2 years.

 

Sponsorship Program

We feel it is important for the Home of Hope children to grow up having someone in the world that loves and cares about them.This is why we have launched our sponsorship program in January 2017. We personally matched our sponsor applicants to our Home of Hope children. Many sponsors are coming from Canada, Sweden, Partex UK, Partex France, Partex India, Partex Sweden, Partex Poland and Partex Germany. The sponsors cover part of the cost for housing, food, clothing, medical care and school fees for their sponsor child. Throughout the sponsorship program, our Foundation representative has continuously traveled to Nepal allowing them to exchange any letters or photos from the sponsor or Home of Hope children. Our sponsors are updated after each trip about their sponsor child. Our sponsorship program allows the sponsors to create a relationship with their Home of Hope child and create a positive impact on the Home of Hope children!
