We are extremely grateful to all donors. We are still fundraising and this last weekend raised a further £3000 for our overall target. This money and that raised so far on GG means we can help another school. Funds raised to date excluding grants are over £50k and we have grants coming of another $50k (approved) and £50k (being processed, told ok but awaiting confirmation). We have sufficient funds to start but we want to put them all together so that our partners can do the whole in one go. It will work out cheaper. Subject to the last grant, we now have the project fully funded but we can always help improve the sanitation and education in more schools than we have in our project to date as we recieve further funds. All funds raised to date will be used.
The partner providing the educational part of the programme is already to go and there already in Nepal but that will happen when we start our project. We expect the project to start, on a practical basis, over the next 6 months. With all funding in place we can proceed. We will only do that when the funds are recieved. We control the distribution of the funds for the project.
The schools and staff in Nepal are all very excited that we can help them (and so many more people). Our partners at the Rotary Club of the Himalyan Gurkhas are also ready to proceed. They have to manage the project and in order to get other funding grants they have now completed the paperwork. Our club looks forward to being able to get started asap. More up dates will come.
