The Esther Benjamins Trust is a small charity doing big things in Nepal.
The Esther Benjamins Trust has grown to become a leading UK registered charity focuing solely on improving the lives of Nepal’s most vulnerable children and young people.
Among other achievements the trust has:
The Trust works for Nepal's most excluded and at risk children. The current focus is on children who have been trafficked into India, rescued by the Trust and returned home or to the safety of its refuge.
We excel in locating and rescuing Nepali children who have been trafficked or displaced into India and in supporting their post-rescue care - by reuniting children with families wherever possible, and by providing structured residential refuge in Nepal and access to education.
Over the years we have adapted our work depending on the needs of the children in Nepal. Read more about what we do here >Sponsor Now
Radio 4 ‘You and Yours’ Programme – Mr Richard Whitaker.
The late Mr Richard Whitaker, who was featured on today’s (30th July 2015) ‘You and Yours’ has been a supporter of The Esther Benjamins Trust since 2011. As a supporter, he will have received our newsletters and annual appeals.
We have never bought in, sold or swapped mailing lists, so Mr Whitaker’s details were not obtained in this way, nor were they shared with other charities by The Esther Benjamins Trust. We have no record of his phone number, so we could not have called him. All his donations were freely given and due to the fact he generously wanted to support the work we are doing in Nepal.
We are extremely grateful for the support Mr Whitaker has given us over the years and genuinely think he must have believed in the work we are doing. We would like to send our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
