background :

On October 2007 around at 8 pm Goma Dhakal ,the president of the Rainbow Children Home,  got a phone call from a close well wisher at Khahare, Lakeside. Someone needed her help. After about 20 minutes when she arrived there, she found Buddhi and his   2½ year old brother covert with mud and dirt next to their unconscious mother. After questioning the spectators and Buddhi himself, it was found that Buddhi and his brother came from a working class family. His father and mother used to work on building sites mixing sand and cement. Sadly, their father had left them quiet some time ago. His mother then started begging in the streets, showing her two young sons and asking for money. The money she got from begging was used to buy alcohol every day. It was also found that his mother had fallen unconscious a couple of times before. Some kind people had given her money for her boys, but like always she spent it on alcohol. It was a heartbreaking sight seeing Buddhi and his brother next to their unconscious mother. The Rainbow Children home family decided to take Buddhi and his brother to the Rainbow Children Home, but needed to convince his mother of letting her children go first.  They explained to her the positive, future consequences of Buddhi going to school, getting regular food and growing up in a safe place with 14 other children. Finally his mother decided to handover Buddhi to the childrens home.
Buddhi has started school now and he turns out to be quite a bright child but he has a challenging future ahead of him. Where as he used to go begging in the streets for money with his mother, he now has to get used to going to school, learning and a 'family life'. He is very protective of his brother and takes good care of him. We are proud to have Buddhi as our new family member and we will give him all the opportunities we can.
