Progress Report for Nepal Orphanage
We would like to thank everyone for their donations to the orphanage in Nepal. Global Reach International is working hard to continue our support to children in need. Donations that are given to the charity go 100% to the children in need. If you would like to visit the orphanage on our next trip in March 2012 please let us know. Bill Sansone, a former Peace Corps Volunteer of Nepal will be bringing a group of volunteers to the orphanage during this time. We will also be streaming live feeds during our next trip for donors to see where their money is being spent.
Funds that have been distributed have gone to help with food and clothing of the orphanage. Funds that are currently being raised will be used to help paint, repair, and buy educational materials for the children. In January 2012, one of our board members will be going to Nepal to visit the orphanage to distribute funds for the repair of the building. A follow up trip is scheduled for March 12 – 23, 2012 to take photos and video of the progress. During our March trip we will also set up computers and purchase new educational material for the children.
Another goal of Global Reach International with this orphanage is to set up a video line for people in the USA to interact with the children in the orphanage. The live video feed will be through Cisco Systems. We want to communicate with the children on a daily basis. We also plan on having classes in the future that the children can interact with through the live video stream. If you are not aware already, we are offering a Gift for good this year for every donation over $100 to help support the orphanage. $100 will get you a Bamboo scarf hand made in Nepal.

The library Project is still ongoing and is looking for funding to complete it's mission to bring reading materials to needy children in Nepal. We would also like to bring reading materials for blind children. Global Reach International is looking for laptops, books, and any donations to help with the construction costs of desks and solar equipment to power the computers.

This project will be Global Reach International's 2011 project of the year. We are looking to raise additional funding to keep this orphanage operational. There are 25 children. A Global Reach International staff member will be going to this orphanage in September to set up computers for children. All money received is being used for food and supplies for the orphanage.
