Early Child Development Centre - Opening Day!

On Sunday the 16th December we opened the doors to our brand new Early Child Development Centre in a remote mountain area of Sindalpochowk, Nepal. 5 hours drive north of Kathmandu this village was one of the worst impacted areas of the earthquake of 2015 with over 60 fatalities in such a small area.

Early Child Development Centres are absolutely vital in Nepal for ensuring kids get an early start on education making it far more likely they will go on to attend school rather than turning to the streets or farms for work at a very young age which often leads to child marriage, abduction and worse.

We broke ground in April this year and officially opened on Sunday the 16th of December. A bright, safe and happy place for 75 3-5 year old underprivileged children.

The children were delighted with their new centre, not least with the slide and swings, most of the kids had never seen a ladder before let alone a slide so a little training was required along with some very brave first attempts ending in jumbled up heaps - but lots of happy faces all round!

Ground Breaking Day!

Ground Breaking Day!
On December the 13th 2018 we broke ground on a new school wing in a remote area of Bulingtar, Nepal. The school was seriously damaged in the earthquake of 2015 and has been overlooked by government and international aid agencies ever since. 
The school was at risk of being closed down, the children were beginning to travel great distances to go to school elsewhere and the teachers were starting to leave due to the poor working conditions. 
Due to open later this year the new building will provide safe education for over 200 underprivileged children.

New Child Development Centre, Nepal

Ground breaking and the blessing of the first brick at our new project in rural Nepal. An early childhood development centre for 60 3-5 year old underprivileged kids. Building in an area that lost so much in the earthquake of 2015.

PADARYIA PROGRESS

It's all hands on deck in Padaryia, we are working hard to complete the 3rd floor of our school before the monsoon hits.  The 3rd floor will serve as a much needed secondary school for the kids.  Great progress being made by the team on the ground.

Good News From Padaryia, Nepal.

After a very successful first 18 months at our new school in Padaryia, Nepal we are happy announce that we have begun construction on a 3rd floor that will serve as a high school for children continuing their education. A great opportunity for the kids to gain access to better employment and further education opportunities.
