70 Days left Ends Aug 2, 2019

It's been 3 years since the deadly earthquakes of 2015 devastated Nepal. Homes, schools, businesses, and other infrastructure were destroyed or damaged.  While many in the world community donated to help, little support has reached those who need it most, as funds have not been disbursed to most households. Many families still live in temporary structures, without running water and electricity. They are still lacking in daily necessities.  It is estimated that 770,000 families will go through another winter in temporary structures.

 

 

In the village of Sankhu, the local government maintains a registry of all families affected by the earthquake.  From this list, 250 children were identified as needing educational support.  Most of these children live in temporary structures without running water or electricity; many of them are lacking daily necessities!

During this 2 year campaign our mission is to raise funds for the following:

1. Education:  School fees, text books, school supplies, uniforms, clothing

2. Food:  Basic food necessities to students and their families:  rice, lentils, powdered milk, tea, sugar, spices

3. Health Camp:  Sponsor a health camp where children and their families can receive a general checkup

4. Transportation:  To assist rural children with transportation to and from school

5. Administration:  We are a growing organization who would benefit from establishing an office to support our increased administrative workload

This is your chance to help a child’s future and invest in the dreams of this under privileged, struggling community!  Please donate today!

Or, consider sponsoring a child in need!
