My regular reader, Ijya Paudel, will be going to Gorkha, Nepal in order to volunteer for a program called Sambhav Nepal with a mission to provide Nepali kids with proper schooling and she likes to share her project with all of you here.
Sambhav Nepal is a registered non-profit, non-political, social organization aiming to establish and implement sustainable education, health, and community development programs in isolated areas of Nepal. Presently, the organization is working in 29 VDC’s of the Gorkha district.They are a community organization that deals with advocacy, skill building and most importantly education. When we grow up in a Western and developed society we often take things for granted.
Sambhav Nepal works with governmental schools, which are very low funded and ran inefficiently. The students in these schools are struggling with getting regular school supplies and proper education. They do not have adequate furniture, stationary, books, art supplies, sports equipment or a proper library.
Where you are born shouldn’t determine whether you get an education or not. By donating, you give these kids what they are missing the most: A CHANCE. An opportunity to show that they can be somebody.
My goal is to raise $2000 dollars by the end of November, 2013. I want to donate this sum of money so these students could get a chance at a better education. These $2000 dollars would not only buy their school supplies and furniture but, also help provide the students with proper school uniforms. These students just need a little help to reach their potential. We can do so by donating a small amount of money.
If you donate any amount starting from $5 dollars and above, your name will be entered in a raffle. At the end of this project, I will be drawing a random name and you will win an iPad.
Please consider this as a chance to help those who really need it. Giving back is a beautiful thing. I hope you consider.
You can donate at www.youcaring.com/nepal2013 If you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact me on email@example.com
Please help Ijya by donating and sharing this page. Thank you everyone.
Wonderful cause… I haven’t mentioned this, but in my new job I interact with some folks who are immigrants, some who are refugees, etc. We have a significant number of Nepali immigrants in our programme, working toward health careers. 🙂
That is good to know nelle. Hope they are behaving themselves and not causing any problem to you and others. I am interested to know more about it.
Thank you so much for posting this 🙂 This means the world to me! Together we can make our country better (even when we live so far away)
You are welcome gal. Wish you all the best.
Such a great post here, young Nepalese giving back to the country, I personally appeal e’one here to donate as well. 2000$ is not a big amount if all of us contribute 🙂
I hope she will reach her goal soon…
