PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN
The Ankur Counselling Centre has become a pioneer in psychological therapy for disadvantaged children in Nepal. It was established in 2006 to help heal the emotional challenges of the children who come to NYF from backgrounds of trauma, abandonment, neglect, oppression and discrimination.
The professional Ankur staff members are schooled in a variety of therapeutic interventions as well as in individual and group counselling. The Centre complements its psychosocial counselling with a wide range of training programmes and workshops for hundreds of people every year who work with children. Additionally, Ankur offers internships to college students in Nepal who are pursuing degrees in social work.
Originally established to help underprivileged children, the Ankur Counselling Centre, now offers counselling for everyone in the Kathmandu area, maintaining its emphasis on children.
An Ankur satellite centre in Western Nepal specifically treats girls that NYF has freed from childhoods of indentured servitude.
