On behalf of Rashan, Thank you so Much!
Thanks so much for helping to provide school furniture for twelve kids including Rashan.
Rashan originally comes from Sindhupalchok district, an area north east of Kathmandu that was one of the hardest hit by the earthquakes. His family’s home was completely destroyed by the disasters.
Rashan recalls the complete chaos and fear that enveloped everyone in the area. But the scale of death and destruction that he witnessed is hard for him to put into words. Basic provisions of food and water were severely affected, adding to the emotional stress.
After the earthquake Rashan and his family moved to stay with family members in Bhaktapur and he began attending the Shree Bhim Adarsha School.
But even here the horrors of the earthquake weren’t far away. Rashan’s new school was also damaged and this served as a constant reminder of the earthquake that destroyed his home.
Because of the damage to the school Rashan and his classmates also lost all their school furniture. So they were being forced to study on the floor and had nowhere safe to keep their books. This was further damaging Rashan’s future by denying him a quality education.
But now because of your generosity, Rashan and his classmates will be able to sit and study in comfort. They will also be able to look after their valuable textbooks.This will allow them to more effectively learn the skills they need to build bright futures.
We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Rashan and his classmates, right here on GlobalGiving. Should you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!
One last time, thanks so much for giving the Gift of Education to Rashan and his friends.
