Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcome to one who sent me. For he who is least among you all - He is the greatest". Luke (9:48 NIV)

NLCHN has been involved from its beginning to rescue young girls from prostitution, brothels as well as human trafficking. According to Nepalese media reports that every year 70,000 young girls are trafficked and sold in to prostitution out of Nepal. We have rescued hundreds of girls and they have been raised and educated in NLCHN and our schools and now many of them have become Pastor's wife, nurses, teachers, engineer, doctors, computer operators and good mothers as well as housewife. We have also helped and raise hundreds of boys who now become Pastors, missionaries, Christian workers, teachers, lawyer, doctors, engineers and many of them have left the Country to become migrant workers and they are supporting their immediate family.
Some boys and girls who grew up in NLCHN now have started their Children haven and are rescuing hundreds of boys and girls from poverty, girls trafficking and child labors and thousands of children are now, have an opportunity to have better education to good health, nutritional meals and protection for both boys and girls and have becomes productive member in the community and Churches and Churches as well as civic leaders in the nations of Nepal.
USA and Euro $ goes long way in Nepal. We would like to take these opportunities give thank all over partners/donors as wells foundations and corporation who have contributed generously to help these children of Nepal.
Please think what would have happened to these children? As Mother Teresa said, "God always put his face upon people". We believe that True Religion is to help a fellow human being who is in need. When we came to this world, we brought nothing and when we leave we will take nothing. Therefore, let us establish the legacy of our lives to help the needy children of the world with our resources which will count in eternity.
NEPAL IS NATURALLY DIVIDED INTO THREE MAIN "BELTS" RUNNING EAST TO WEST.
1. TERAI: ABOUT 17% OF THE TOTAL LAND AREA OF THE ONE-THIRD OF NEPAL, KNOWN AS "THE TERAI."
2. HILLS: THE CENTRAL BELT OF NEPAL IS THE HILL REGION, RANGING IN ALTITUDE FROM 610 METERS (2,000 FT.) TO 1,600 METERS (5,249 FT.). THIS BELT CONSISTS MOSTLY OF HILLS AND VALLEYS AND HERE LIES KATHMANDU, THE CAPITAL, AND LARGEST, CITY.
3. HIMALAYAN: THE TRANS-HIMALAYAN REGION LIES ALONG THE NORTHERN SECTOR OF NEPAL. IT IS BETWEEN 1,600 METERS (5249 FT.) AND 8,848 METERS (29028 FT.) AT THE PEAK OF MT. EVEREST, THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN ON EARTH.
CLIMATE: THERE ARE FIVE CLEARLY DEFINED CLIMATIC ZONES IN NEPAL: TROPICAL, SUB-TROPICAL, TEMPERATE, ALPINE AND SUB-ARCTIC.
PEOPLES: NEPAL IS A COUNTRY OF MIXED RACES, LANGUAGES, RELIGION AND CULTURES. DIFFERENT PEOPLES HAVE COME INTO THE AREA FROM ALL DIRECTIONS, MOSTLY FROM THE NORTH, MONGOLOID TYPES, AND SOUTH, ARYAN INDIAN PEOPLE
In 1951, the Nepali monarch ended the century-old system of rule by hereditary premiers and instituted a cabinet system of government. Reforms in 1990 established a multiparty democracy within the framework of a constitutional monarchy. An insurgency led by Maoists broke out in 1996. The ensuing 10-year civil war between Maoist and government forces witnessed the dissolution of the cabinet and parliament and assumption of absolute power by the king in 2002.
Several weeks of mass protests in April 2006 were followed by several months of peace negotiations between the Maoists and government officials, and culminated in a late 2006 peace accord and the promulgation of an interim constitution. Following a nationwide election in April 2008, the newly formed Constituent Assembly (CA) declared Nepal a federal democratic republic and abolished the monarchy at its first meeting the following month. The CA elected the country's first president in July.
Between 2008 and 2011 there were four different coalition governments, led twice by the United Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist, which received a plurality of votes in the 2008 CA election, and twice by the Communist Party of Nepal-United Marxist-Leninist (UML). After the CA failed to draft a constitution by the May 2012 deadline set by the Supreme Court, then Prime Minister Baburam BHATTARAI dissolved the CA. Months of negotiations ensued until March 2013 when the major political parties agreed to create an interim government headed by then Chief Justice Khil Raj REGMI with a mandate to hold elections for a new CA. Elections were held in November 2013, in which and the Nepali Congress won the largest share of the seats in the CA and in February 2014 formed a coalition government with the second place UML and with Nepali Congress President Sushil KOIRALA as prime minister
The primary concern of the Christian Medical College and Teaching Hospital is to develop through education and training, compassionate, professionally excellent, ethically sound individuals who will go out as servant-leaders of health teams and healing communities. Their service may be in promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative or palliative aspects of health care, in education or in research. In the area of research, CMCTH strives to understand God’s purposes and designs, fostering a spirit of enquiry, commitment to truth and high ethical standards. Research may be aimed at gaining knowledge of the fundamental bases of health and disease, at improving interventions or in optimizing the use of resources. In the delivery of health care, CMCTH provides a culture of caring while pursuing its commitment to professional excellence. CMCTH is committed to innovation and the adoption of new, appropriate, cost-effective technology which enhances the care and patient outcomes. CMCTH reaffirms its commitment to the promotion of health and wholeness in individuals and communities and its special concern for the disabled, disadvantaged, marginalized and vulnerable. CMCTH looks for support and participation in its programs in education, service, outreach and research, from friends and likeminded agencies in Nepal and abroad, in a true spirit of partnership. In its role as a living witness in the healing ministry of Christ, CMCTH seeks to work in partnership, both with the church in Nepal, and the universal/global church and their institutions.
Our proposed NLCHN polytechnic institute will be established as a model to train men and women to develop their capabilities for better employment, and also to be instruments in the national effort towards better economic, social, and professional career development. We expect to bring people from all over the Nepal to the institute, the over hundreds churches represented by the NLCHN being a primary source of trainees. However, the institute will be open to non-NLCHNs with no discrimination.
The NLCHN has recently become the NLCHN organization with declared NLCHN goals to be registered by Nepal government. This means that benevolent and NLCHN organizations now have vehicles within the country i.e. both evangelical NLCHN in philosophy and meets accountability standards of secular authority.
Many people are not aware that up until three years ago there was no religious freedom in Nepal. A Nepalese citizen was well-thought-out born into the state religion and it was against the law for him to convert. Officially, now there is freedom of religion as the country was declared to be a democratic in 1990. Still the government denies to be a NLCHN and laws restrict the spreading of NLCHN people. It is illegalize for evangelism, and some inhuman laws for preaching and baptizing. However, the government is not imposing these laws at the present time, and evangelical young people are witnessing and conducting street meetings with great courage.
