Dhiraj came home to a Hope’s Promise family in June 2012. He is thriving with his four brothers and house parents. He is very smart! Dhiraj dreams of becoming a
scientist! Dhiraj was born in Nepal, one of the least developed nations in the world. Many children lose their parents to death or incapacitation from the ravages of poverty. Of Nepal’s total population of 28.5 million, an estimated one million children are orphaned and approximately 25,000 live in orphanages. Orphans in Nepal are especially vulnerable to child labor, trafficking, and child marriage.
