We are so excited to continue our work on projects in Nepal. We are right now working on building our 2018 plan (can't believe it's almost 2018!) and are excited about work that is getting ready to commence in the Solukhumbu. Planning with The Small World (our on-the-ground partner) is happening now to build another set of classrooms at the Ramailo Jyoti School near Salleri, Nepal.
This site was one of the most damaged after the 2015 earthquakes and we've worked here before, building classrooms. It is the same site where the headmaster told me that six months after the earthquakes he had 100 fewer students than he did pre-earthquakes -- he wasn't sure where they were or what school (if any) they were attending. It was devasting to hear and now that we've been working in the school the student numbers are creeping back up as we continue to build and support this area.
Now is the time to continue rebuilding in Nepal -- as other efforts, other organizations, and international donors look to other parts of the world. Now is the time for us to continue building, to continue to stay dedicated to this part of Nepal, and to ensure that children can keep coming back to a safe place to get an education.
We know that the longer kids are out of school the worse off they are. So please help us as we rebuild Nepal for today, tomorrow and the coming years. There are still kids in this area, the greater Everest Region and Nepal overall who need a room and a classroom so that they can finish their schooling and help to raise their families and villages out of poverty. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated in the past and if you have the time and ability we would appreciate a final (or first) donation of the year to help us launch 2018 with new success in the region -- Yours in peace and service,
