As part of Bihani Social Venture’s endeavour to work for the betterment of all elders in our community, a formal Agreement was signed between The Hope Hermitage Nepal and Matatirtha Old Age Home to work together as Social Partners on 24 June 2015. Post the 2015 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks these two old age homes needed the support that Bihani provides even more.

As of now, we provide a support system to a total of 79+ elders in three old age homes in the Kathmandu Valley through activities focused on improvement of physical, social and psychological health as well as helping facilitate new income generation opportunities.
