Our blankets will remain in the chant room throughout the day, which also doubles as a reading room. With the introduction of our Priti blankets, the children can create a soft and cozy space to sit upon during this special prayer time. The kids at the orphanage chant nightly. It is quite a beautiful and calming activity that they do in between after school homework and before dinner. Shiva, the "father" at the orphanage, leads the chants, which can last up to 30 minutes. In addition, the children can curl up with their book draped in their PRITI blankets while reading. A much needed addition to the orphanage indeed.
To participate in this effort, purchase your blanket here.
Coming Soon! Please watch out for our new mat kickstarter, which will feature more donation options to Kids of Kathmandu: $10 feeds 10 kids for an entire day. Until then, cash donations will be accepted at kidsofkathmandu.org
