A fundraising campaign was created to assist with a new residence and was completed. The children are well cared for and independent - they have built their own garden and raise chickens. Each year a small group of Nepali and international supporters donate to the running of Sonrisa. All of the proceeds from the sale of this painting will to to this children's home.)
