In Nepal, orphanages attract countless ‘voluntourists’ – and their donations – each year. While good-intentioned, donors are unknowingly supporting the ‘orphanage trade’: an industry removing children from their homes with the promise of a better life and profiting from fee-paying volunteers. As well as reuniting children with their families, Forget Me Not empowers young people with skills to earn an income in the tourism industry.
This gift reunites youth in Kathmandu with their families, supports them to meaningful employment and educates travellers about the dangers of orphanage tourism.
