This blog is for OSOC supporters who are participating in fund raising events for our charity.

Our Street Our Children is a Non Governmental Organisation formed in Nepal in 2012 to provide assistance to unaccompanied children living on the streets of Narayangarh, Chitwan, Nepal.

Our Street Our Children (Hamro Sadak Hamra Balbalika in Nepali) was started by Dave and Jackie Britten before they returned from Nepal after working for a year in the local community in Narayangarh, a city located in the heart of Nepal in the district of Chitwan.

OSOC provides support for street children in the following two key areas:

Help for street children (Outreach)

Supporting education for children in poverty

OSOC is a Nepali organisation run by Nepalis. It is run by a management committee in Nepal, comprised of members of the local community who want to make a difference in their city. They are all volunteers, the only paid staff are teachers working in the Homework Club and outreach workers who work with the children on the streets of Narayangarh.

OSOC was formed to help solve the problems of those children who have made the streets their home. It aims to work with them on the streets whilst respecting their wishes and aspirations.

OSOC believes children can be rehabilitated into family and  society by fulfilling their basic needs and imparting education.

Street children have been labelled as asocial, because of their activities. They feel compelled to go against the established norms and values as they are despised by their community. OSOC works to end such discriminations and make them a part of society by helping to resolve their problems.

Jackie, Dave and their supporters organise events in the UK to raise funds to support OSOC in its essential work in Narayangarh.  Forthcoming events include the Great North Run where our supporters are running to raise funds for OSOC. Similar events are taking place in Bristol and Birmingham where we still have places available. For further details please visit our website Events page at:  https://www.osoc.org.uk/running.html
