Dipesh waiting for his ride to school
Even for the Nepalese children who are healthy and who can run and play, getting a formal education is a challenge. However, for disabled children in a country where sidewalks are rare and many remote areas don't even have paved roads, getting to school becomes an impossibility.
NYF's Disabled Student Scholarship Program has been helping these students gain access to the education that they crave. And, in many situations, the disabled child, once educated, becomes the source of the highest income in the household, thus raising everyone in the family to a more sustainable economic level.
We appreciate the support you have given us and we are grateful for your contributions to the opportunity to learn for these disabled, yet bright and eager children and young adults.
And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...
... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.
Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate! $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14. This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.
Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF. Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.
And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000! That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.
As far as the Disabled Student Scholarship Program goes, this means that we could provide FOUR students with an entire year of education at a special school for the disabled, PLUS provide transportation to and from school to all of them. This is almost twice the value of services that the original donation can provide!
- The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
- The organization that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
Thank you again for your support of the Nepal Youth Foundation. Namaste!
