Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at GVI Nepal and the GVI Charitable Trust.
Thanks to you, our donors, this year has been a fantastic year. Our main achievement is that we have raised enough funds to cover a year's rent at Children's Paradise Pre-School and Child Care Centre! This has allowed the school to expand and admit more students, therefore increasing the schools income and raising awareness of special needs in Nepal.
The school is now over two floors. Downstairs are classrooms for the nursery class, toddlers play room, a sleeping room and a brand new sensory room for the special needs children who cannot go into normal class. And upstairs houses Lower Kindergarten, Upper Kindergarten and most importantly, class 3 with our three special boys! It is now possible to educate these boys all the way up to class 10 so they can obtain their School Leaving Certificate which is such a vital educational achievement in Nepal.
Thanks to our donor and supporters also, and through our various charity challenges, we have been able to offer the children at the street kids rehabilitation centre two full plates of Daal Bhat a day for a whole year. It's so important that we can guarantee food for these children; it takes a weight of the mind of Aamaa, the mother of the home as well as giving the children the energy they need to develop and excel in all that they do!
What a great year! Here's to hoping next year is just as good.
All the best this holiday season.
