WHO WE ARE

ChoraChori (the Nepali word for “children”) is a really special UK-registered charity. We work alongside international project partners to support a range of cutting-edge projects in Nepal, always placing ourselves at the forefront of contemporary needs.

We tackle threats and challenges that others might prefer to avoid – everything from the emotionally demanding management of child rape survivors, to feeding starving families during lockdown, to engaging with the existential threat of climate change.

In short, we make a tangible difference where it counts while giving our supporters a fulfilling experience through original and creative fundraising activities. Please join us!

EMPOWERING GIRLS IN NEPAL

Isobel Smith, SIGBI President 2019-2020

“It is very exciting to have such a dynamic partner for our Empowering Girls in Nepal project. Making a difference to the lives of women and girls is at the heart of what we do as Soroptimists. Through this project we can equip the most vulnerable girls with skills to become independent, confident citizens. Find out more about Empowering Girls in Nepal and how we can leave a lasting legacy.”

THE BIG STORY

“Never think you can’t write – you can. If you can speak, you can write. If you can understand this, you are fully qualified to tell a story of your own. It will belong to you; you can select and create and mix up and omit anything you want. Just start at once, on any old paper or screen or tablet. Start anywhere in the story, at the end if you like, but above all, start. It will be the best thing you have done for ages. When you have finished it (it will never feel perfect), get the sponsorship and send it together with your composition to us at The Big Story. There! You are already fabulous. A thousand thanks!”

GATES OF BRONZE

Gates of Bronze is Philip Holmes’ inspirational and moving memoir of personal and professional triumph against the odds, of enduring love, written by a man who looked death in the face and vowed, “I will not give in.”

When Philip’s first wife, Esther Benjamins, took her own life in January 1999 he refused to be overwhelmed by grief and despair. Instead, he turned his back immediately upon a promising career as a British Army officer and set up a charity for Nepalese children to perpetuate Esther’s love and burning sense of social justice.

“Gates of Bronze is gripping and tragic and yet dappled with hope and extraordinary accomplishments. It’s easy to see how you stepped into the river and were swept away by its massive demands. Bravo Philip!”
