NEPAL

The Foundation searched for a number of new projects in 2022 and 2023
in Nepal, which are mainly aimed at developing self-reliance. After a
extensive screening, we have entered into a partnership for the coming years
with the following organizations:


Stichting Friends Netherlands Nepal
Orange Angel finances the "Didi project"
The project focuses on the professional training of women in the field of
cooking, housekeeping, bakery and work within the hotel industry.


Danielle's Children Fund-Kathmandu
This organization is committed to underprivileged families in Jorpati, one of the...
slums of Kathmandu. The project that we financially support

is a tailoring training course for women, so that they can later earn a stable income
realize. With the help of our financing, the Training started in 2022
Center, where training is given daily. The intention is to
to also offer further training by 2024.

students (age between 16-20 years old, most with disabilities)). During the day
The basic course teaches the student to work with Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Also
Students can go there for graphic design, website design, etc.

mountain range. The organization is committed to helping disabled people through: computer courses
and sewing training.

still very successful, The amount of loans granted is approx.
the equivalent of 570 euros per person. The current fund has remained intact, loans
are properly refunded. Most beneficiaries are self-employed
seamstress. Some loans are used for other income generating purposes
activities, for example in agriculture.


External control and reporting
The Foundation has commissioned an external agency to conduct the...
to visit projects and report to the Foundation. With the exception of
the HEAD Foundation (which is too remote in the Himalayan Mountains) will all be completed by 2023
visited projects and Orange Angels received a detailed report of the
findings.


It has also been decided to continue collaboration with all mentioned projects before 2024
continue.

BRAZIL

Our work with local partner organization Olha Elaa expanded to include their JUMP project in South America's largest favela. This project combined direct skills training with online skills and business start-up training. It used 'gaming' teaching and learning techniques and produced a series of social media and YouTube spots for wider reach and participation. Participants have found new work, improved their work and family situations and some have successfully launched a small business using online marketing and sales techniques.

2021 - January - May
 

The whole world is in the grip of Covid-19 and unfortunately we have had to decide to stop sewing training in Nepal for the time being.

Our help with the provision of micro-credits continues.

Our activities in Brazil in collaboration with Agua Doce and Olha Elhaa will continue. Recently, some thirty underprivileged women have successfully completed their plumbing, stucco or jewelry making course

For 2021, Orange Angel is looking for a number of new projects that fall within the objectives of the Foundation.

2020

Due to Covid-19 we have unfortunately been forced to temporarily stop a number of projects.

] Nepal also went into a long lock-down and we also had to stop the sewing training. The salaries of the staff have been paid by Orange Angel, as well as the rent and the fixed costs.

The repayments on the outstanding micro-credits have been suspended for as long as the lock down lasts and will be resumed when normal life has returned.

In Brazil, Orange Angel has started a project not far from Rio de Janeiro, where we have developed a program for underprivileged women in collaboration with the organizations Agua Doce (Sweet Water) and Olha Eela. Training courses are given that are aimed at self-reliance, in particular vocational training courses such as plumbing, stucco construction and jewelry making.

2018
 
Completion of projects Sri Lanka I.


The projects in Sri Lanka were almost completed in 2018. It became the last house
built and the last micro-credits have been repaid. Partly because of the decision
from Ron and Yvonne Wilke - our valuable contact persons on the spot - afterwards
many years of effort to slow down, Orange Angel has
decided to also phase out its activities in Sri Lanka and continue
to focus on Nepal.

Sewing tricks

The sewing training is going very well. We have a fantastic organization on site that coordinates everything and reports excellently. Many ladies have graduated and a large number of them have also taken the follow-up course on electric sewing machines.

Own business

Most of the ladies have bought a sewing machine themselves after their training and bought fabrics with the help of our micro-credits and work from home. Some have also found jobs.

Try-out external training

In addition to our own training courses, we started an external one on 20 July
training company, F-Skills in Kathmandu. Depending on our experiences with 20
ladies who follow the basic course we will see during this try-out whether we
perhaps be able to work with more students at a lower cost.
