Merry Christmas from Pokhara!

Dear Supporter, 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at GVI Nepal and the GVI Charitable Trust. 

Thanks to you, our donors, this year has been a fantastic year. Our main achievement is that we have raised enough funds to cover a year's rent at Children's Paradise Pre-School and Child Care Centre! This has allowed the school to expand and admit more students, therefore increasing the schools income and raising awareness of special needs in Nepal.

The school is now over two floors. Downstairs are classrooms for the nursery class, toddlers play room, a sleeping room and a brand new sensory room for the special needs children who cannot go into normal class. And upstairs houses Lower Kindergarten, Upper Kindergarten and most importantly, class 3 with our three special boys! It is now possible to educate these boys all the way up to class 10 so they can obtain their School Leaving Certificate which is such a vital educational achievement in Nepal.

Thanks to our donor and supporters also, and through our various charity challenges, we have been able to offer the children at the street kids rehabilitation centre two full plates of Daal Bhat a day for a whole year. It's so important that we can guarantee food for these children; it takes a weight of the mind of Aamaa, the mother of the home as well as giving the children the energy they need to develop and excel in all that they do!

What a great year! Here's to hoping next year is just as good. 

All the best this holiday season.

Giving grassroot organisations a chance in Tsavo

Saying Goodbye
Saying Goodbye

Dear Supporter,

In November 2014 GVI returned for the last time to Tsavo. Our goal was to use the funds our amazing donors raised to support the inspiring ex poachers group Ngoyaki.

Efforts of CBO’s such as Ngoyaki are vital, particularly in Tsavo where the illegal bush-meat trade and ivory targeted poaching is the highest threat to tropical wildlife. The bush-meat trade is now escalating despite mitigation efforts by Kenyan Wildlife Service (KWS). Unfortunately KWS is under-resourced and needs help to effectively put a halt to poaching in Tsavo, this puts groups such as Ngoyaki in a very important position to implement change within local poaching communities and to increase the much needed manpower.

Ngoyaki owns a piece of land near Lake Challa and bordering Tsavo West National Park which contain several fresh water springs that serves as a valuable water sources for near-by communities, a vital bio-diversity pocket, as well a water point source for local cattle herders. It is the damaging effects of heavy cattle herder use that instigated the cattle-trough initiative. Through financial support via the Charitable Trust (CT) and added man-power, GVI have installed a cattle trough system to support the group’s aim to preserve a communally used water source and protect a crucial bio-diversity pocket on their land. 

Powered by 9 GVI volunteers, 4 Ngoyaki group members, the expertise of a mason, and funds donated by our supportive donors through CT, we managed to complete the water catchment system this November.

Through our combined efforts over the past 2 years, and the gracious CT donations, this group has a slice of protected land. GVI, Ngoyaki and Tsavo Pride would like to extend a massive thank you to all of you who have donated as this would not have been feasible without your generosity. 

Thank you

Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries

Dear Supporter, 

Great news! The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries, awarded Verified status to Wild Horse Rescue Center.

Verification means that Wild Horse Rescue Center meets the criteria of a true equine sanctuary/rescue and is providing humane and responsible care of the animals. To be awarded Verified status, an organization must meet GFAS’s rigorous and peer-reviewed animal care standards which are confirmed by a site visit and they must also adhere to a demanding set of ethical and operational principles.

This is fantastic recognition for the work done at the centre. Moving forward, we hope as this project continues to see donations come in, we will be able to help more animals be rehabilitated!

Thank you for your support
