Welcome to MCAF
Mother and Children Art Foundation (MCAF) was established in 2004 as a nonprofit organization with a dedication to the education, health and employment of impoverished women and children in Nepal. In the initial days, we started with giving Thangka Painting training to women. Later on we have been successful in broadening our activities and services in many places with the help of many well-wishers, supporters, generous donors and our partnership organisations. We have established a school called Shram Jyoti Pubic School in Kathmandu for orphans, street children, child labourers, disables and children living under the poverty line. We have our central workshop and art gallery in Katmandu and many other training centers in different part of the country. We have been conducting various social and community service projects and adventure education project though out the country.
Our Mission: Our mission is to establish a standard multi-skills training center for disadvantaged women and provide a home and schooling facility for child labors, disables, street children and orphans, as well as to the children of lower class families who are under the poverty line.
The major objectives of MCAF is to conduct various trainings of economic generating skills like thangka painting, weaving, sewing, cutting and trimming etc. to impoverished women. This will relieve them from problems of poverty and raise their living standards.
