The Aama Orphanage Education Foundation (AOEF) is a not-for-profit and non-government registered community based organization in Nepal. Established in 2007 by the residents of Khandbari Bazaar, with the assistance of Ruby and Suren Shrestha, to address the low literacy rates and orphan children.  The Foundations goal is to provide quality education to financially disadvantaged orphans of Eastern Nepal. AOEF aims to provide opportunities to all needy orphan children, giving priority to girls.


Suren is donating all profits from the sale of his book "How to Heal with Singing Bowls", as well as a large percentage of the proceeds from his healing workshops towards building a new orphanage in Khandbari. He and Ruby have already acquired the land, and hope to begin construction soon, in order to spread smiles to many more wonderful kids like Aruna, Datemba, & Lakpa in this picture.

He lives with his family in Boulder, Colorado.
