An update from us...

Hello to all of you, our wonderful supporters! We hope you are well and keeping safe and connected right now. Despite the unusual and difficult times we currently face, activities, education and support is of course still happenng accross all of our schools.

As I’m sure you can imagine, Coronavirus has been at the forefront of the majority of our work over the last months. We have been working very closely with our team in Nepal to monitor the situation. The Kavre district has seen a spike in the number of infections over the last two weeks. As we are sure you have also been feeling, many of our students and their families are experiencing anxiety - with so much unknown, fear of the impact of the lockdown and also of course, the risk of becoming infected. Although all schools are closed, our teaching staff are in regular contact with students and their families, not only with school work but also to listen, offer support and connection for families who are especially isolated. 

We are therefore very aware of the struggles many of our students and families are now facing, with many of them experiencing job loss and unable to keep up with loan repayments and everyday expenses such as food costs. This has been a big concern for us and a significant part of the work in the last few weeks. You may be aware of the emergency fund that Freedom to Learn have set up and we are using this money to support the families who have been hit the hardest by Coronavirus situation by supplying them with essential food packages, seeds to grow crops and educations packs to continue home learning for students. 

We have experienced amazing support from many or our supporters as well as the fantastic generosity from Milford-on-sea Primary School who took on the 2.6 Challenge and raised an incredible £1,897!! We can’t thank you all enough for your support during this testing time. And we wish you and your families all the very best. Stay well and stay connected.

 With all our best wishes,

 Everyone on the Freedom to Learn Team
