Our Work

"No child should grow up behind prison bars" - Pushpa Basnet, Founder

"ECDC began as a children's home to offer a safe place for children in need. But we keep trying to do more. Once Pushpa had established a working model for the children's lodge, she also wanted to help any infants who were too young to come to ECDC, and the inmate mothers themselves. Eventually, when children who had lived at ECDC reached 18 years of age, they too needed additional help for life after the Butterfly Home. We will do as much as we can without compromising the quality and integrity of our work and we will continue our commitment to finding both immediate and long-term solutions for the issues we focus on."
