This progress report reports on the main activities that were carried out in the year and are related to the girls’ education project. It does, by briefly highlighting the importance of the project, its location and aims and objectives. Thirty six girls are in school through this project in this year. Some of them are directly through the girls’ education support scheme and some are through the awareness raising activities. This project is playing a significant role for the advancement of girls’ education in the village and these are highlighted in page five of this report. £30 brings a girl in schooling for a year in this context. So considering all the benefits to educate a girl, investing in girls’ education is one of the best long term investments for a society.

Thames Walk to raise funds in the GatewayChallenge
By Krit Sharma - Project Leader
NVF organised a 14km (Greenwich to the London eye) sponsored Thames Walk on Saturday the 15th of June 2013 to raise funds for the above project. The Walk was dedicated to GlobalGiving June Gateway Challenge and NVF is the first organisation amongst the 37 participating organisations to secure the threshold of the challenge. 18 walkers were participated in the walk and all together we have risen over £1200 pounds. Pam Miller is the top fundraiser. Krit Sharma guided the Walk and Rob Stead was photographer. Each Walker received a ‘certificate of completion’ signed by Dr Suresh Chandra Chalise (chief of mission, Nepalese ambassador to the UK) and Carole Sharma (chair of Nepal Village Foundation). Every Walker said ‘I have enjoyed the walk, had lovely day and I am happy to walk again for such a good cause’. Feedback from the walkers is included in the report at the end.
