Kalaa jyoti means “art enlightenment”

“Kalaa Jyoti” charity was established in 2010 to enhance the lives of orphans and poor children and improve their career prospects, enlarge their horizons and provide a means of self- expression which otherwise will be denied to them through lack of opportunity and funding.

After ten years operating in Nepal, Kalaa Jyoti Charity will close as of 21 July 2020. Sadly, because the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown has prevented our fundraising options both in the United Kingdom and in Nepal, we are unable to maintain our high standards of care and education in the schools and other outlets where our deprived children were taught their art. We have therefore closed Arran House but the current children attending higher education (SLC+2) up to next year will however be funded until completion of their exams in May 2021.

The Trustees of Kalaa Jyoti Charity would like to thank all those who have donated funds, supported and volunteered with our charity activities over the past ten years. Many children have benefitted from your generous donations and  from the art training  which we have been providing since 2010 and many of those children are now pursuing successful careers which previously would not have been open to them.


Art & Education

We teach art classes with the help of local artists and help children learn art by practical art training and exhibitions of their work so they achieve confidence and self expression

Arran House

This is a house for orphans and poor children so that they can continue their post SEE education and learn life skills to become a responsible adult .

Counselling and Motivation

We counsel orphans and poor children for their career prospects and help to achieve their goals.
