US$6,664.00raised of $10,000.00 goal goal
Hello everybody, we are fundraising to build a new building for the school in Kathmandu, Nepal. Located in one of the neighbourhoods of Kathmandu, we founded a English Boarding school in 1995 with only 15 students. Currently, we provide education to almost 150 students between 4 and 14 years old.
No matter where the kids are from, or which status their parents have, everyone should have a chance for receiving good education. The aim is keeping the monthly school fee as low as possible and providing scholarships on the cases that is needed (currently a third of the students are free of charge). The school is also a home for 15 children whose parents are not able to take care of them.
But after everything that has already been achieved, we do not stop dreaming. We want every kid in Nepal to have a chance at a better life. This starts with a good education.
***** UPDATE APRIL 2023 *****
Currently the building that is used by the children is structurally unsafe due to the 2015 earthquake, which has caused cracks in the brickwork. However due to the lack of teaching space available we have no choice but to use those rooms for teaching. We are planning on constructing a new school which could accommodate the teaching requirements for the 100+ students in our care.
We are first hoping to construct foundations on the property to prevent further cracking in the brickwork! This has been quoted at $10,000 US. We would all be so grateful to any support you could give us in helping construct our new school!.
As we have planned, the construction work will be starting from mid of December .For our construction we're hiring local workers from the community. Generating jobs & providing locals with an income further supports the community. We've actively made the decision to not hire a big construction company, since we would like to support locals. We have created a plan for a replacement structure including renders and floor plans of what we would like to build .(you can see in the photos below.)
EDUCATION is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Let us, give those small children's an opportunity to lead the nation and world to right path by building them a safe structure to get education.
