The overall goal of Welcome to my yard is to increase educational and business knowledge and skills for vulnerable street young people in the Pashupatinath street community in order to help them achieve their potential by strengthening their resilience and reducing risk factors of street life. The Childhood-funded project allows the organization to conduct outreach work, workshops, trainings and a savings scheme which encourages the children to learn financial planning and budgeting. The project also includes work placements within the Welcome To My Yard’s social businesses such as guided tours, a coffee cart, and recycling.
