Just new to the general public, Bitcoins have already started to make a bad name for themselves. Most talk in the press about Bitcoins is about the transactions being anonymous and untrackable, making it the ideal currency for illegal transactions. Howevery, Bitcoins do have a great potential changing the world in a better place. If you want to use your Bitcoins for good, keep on reading.

Fair Chance Nepal is a non-profit organizations that helps underprivileged children in Nepal. Many children in Nepal grow up in extreme poverty. Their parents are illiterate and work very low-income jobs. Therefore many children have to start working at a young age, so supplement the families income, leaving them illiterate as well.

Take Kajal for example. Kajal is a 5-year old girl. Her family moved from Rajasthan to Kathmandu 3 years ago looking for work. The family of 4 now lives in a tent near a construction site. The father works their hauling bricks all day long. He earns just $1.50 a day, barely enough to feed the family. As you can understand, education is out of the question. There simply isn't any money for that.

Fair Chance Nepal helps kids like Kajal. We provide them with a proper education. We pay the school fees and provide the children with books and school uniforms. Because of our help their dreams about a brighter future will become a very real possibility. Do you also want to help kids like Kajal and help them to go to school? Make a Bitcoin donation @ 1KqrHkN4roEffNmCDmew1BMZbg74AToSUz. If you want to know what exactly we'll do with your donation, please contact me through the email address listed in my profile.

Thanks

First of all thanks for your reply. And sure! We are a legit organization and I'll try to prove it to you. You can visit our website on http://www.stichtingfairchance.nl. Unfortunately that's all in Dutch now, since we are based in The Netherlands. We're working on an English version of our website but in the mean time Google Translate should get you a long way.
We are registered at the Chambre of Commerce in The Netherlands (Kamer van Koophandel) under number 30244061 and are also registered by the IRS as an ANBI-organization, the Dutch equivalent of the American 501(c).

If that isn't enough for you, just let me know how else I should prove it to you.

Anyone can put a bitcoin address up here (e.g., 1oeceQznDQ7b1eqG3BDcDxpF5KHxLS97A) and a URL for a charity website (e.g., www.børnefonden.dk) without having any association with the organization (or the bitcoin address, for that matter).  If you put the bitcoin address at e.g. the donations page, it would lend a bit more credibility to the whole thing.

Cheers,

Great stuff. If possible consider also having proper https on your site because there are attacks possible which substitute bitcoin addresses (Tor exit nodes etc...). Also consider publishing some kind of news on site or press release about you starting accepting bitcoin donations. This might draw some publicity and ultimately result in more donations to you. I wish you the best of luck.

We provide them with a proper education.

Would a "proper education" include jamming Christianity down their throat as well, as many charities like to do?

Nope! Our work is not based on any particular religion. We work together with local Nepali schools who also don't emphasize on any particular religion. The majority of the Nepali people is Hindu, so my guess is that most of the kids we're helping is also Hindu. Their probably also some Buddhist and Christians among them. But to be honest I'm not sure about that, simply because we don't even bother to ask. If you need help, you need help. No matter what you believe in.

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into the https.
I've started posting here to see if there is a niche for bitcoin donations, and since I've already received the first few (Thanks, guys! Grin) I believe there is! We'll come out with a press release soon and also share some more info with our supporters about Bitcoins. Let's see how far we can go with this... Any more tips or help is appreciated!

At first I didn't even want to reply to your ignorant comment, FreeMoney. But no, we are not selling kids. In fact, we are battling child trafficking through education. Child trafficking is a serious and unfortunately very real problem in Nepal. Parents so poor that they can't even provide food for their own children, sell their kids through middleman who promise to get them a job working as a maid in the city. They hope their daughters will be better of, but in fact they are brought to India to work in the prostitution. Every year between 7,000 and 10,000 girls (!) between the age of 9 and 16, are brought to Indian brothels this way (http://www.childtrafficking.com/Docs/aengst_2001__girls_traffick.pdf).

I don't know if you have a daughter yourself, but imagine what it would be like to hand her over to a stranger who promises to take care of her. To send her with him or her, because you know they might be able to provide what you will never be able to do. And from the girls' perspective? I can only advice you to read this book: http://www.amazon.com/Sold-Patricia-Mccormick/dp/0786851724/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1306822856&sr=1-1

We are battling child trafficking through education. In school children learn about the dangers and consequences of child trafficking. Also, an educated child will eliminate the need for a parent to sell them through a middleman. An educated child in Nepal is a good way of securing your pension, since kids are supposed to take care of their parents when they grow up.

So in short: no, we are not selling kids (not even for Bitcoins). We are educating them so they can stay in school, and stay out of brothels.
