The goal is to provide food, water, education and improve healthcare alongside seven community development projects in Pokhara, Nepal.
7 centres/schools need help from financial aid in securing basic resources including: one children's home that provides food and shelter to children who would be living on the street; two day-care centres that provide a stable and safe environment while parents work; one preschool providing care and therapy to disabled and special needs children and their families; a youth group focusing on building English skills and confidence to improve school grades and find higher paying jobs.
Aside from working beside project staff, GVI would like to help by providing resource donations from supplying a year's worth of food to the children's homes, increasing hygiene awareness at the day care centres, equipment for the therapy centres and training for the youth group.
Long term goals at these centres include better education, improved hygiene and capacity building. Providing full bellies, focusing on hygiene at an early age and creating English training programs means underprivileged children and adults are able to improve their own lives.
