On August 17, 2016 with Child Haven International Director Ms. Bonniema (Bonnie Cappuccino) present, a new temporary shelter home named “Rose Cottage” which means in Nepali “Gulab Ghar”, was opened in Katmandu. It was built with a donation from the Leacross Foundation.
The cottage has thirteen rooms – seven in ground floor and six in top floor. The top floor was fully occupied by staff members and ground floor was occupied by students.

The children were given a choice of clay or paint. Roslyn started with 11 participants and ended with 30 – all smiling. She showed them colour mixing with acrylics.
