Sustaining Change for Orphaned Children and Society

Global Family Village (GFV) envisions a permanent systemic change within the child welfare system; allowing all disenfranchised children in Nepal the opportunity to grow up in a home with a stable family unit including siblings, surrogate parent caregivers and strong community ties.


Global Family Village (GFV's) mission is to help disenfranchised children reach their full potential through family-centered, community based homes; to thrive and become productive members of their society.

  • Support holistic development of orphan children in an enabling environment.
  • Ensure sustainability and self-sufficiency through principles of environmental protection and respect.
  • Provide sufficient training and financial support for families to ensure long-term success of the children.
  • Develop strong and lasting relationships with donors, partners and government agencies.
