PERTHSHIRE NEPAL CHARITY’S NEXT PROJECT – A JOINT VENTURE WITH AN AMERICAN CHARITY
Despite having only just returned from an energy sapping aid mission to Nepal, Perthshire based charity, Bring Back The Smile To Nepal, has already tied up its next venture.
The charity, based in Highland Perthshire, will be working in partnership with the American charity, SATHI NEPAL, in their classroom improvement programme.
“I have admired the work carried out by SATHI Nepal for many years”, explained Anna Gurung (founder of Bring Back The Smile To Nepal), “to be able to help make a difference to the lives of children has always been one of the long term goals of Bring Back The Smile To Nepal.”
“The only way to break the cycle of poverty and oppression, is through education. Together with SATHI Nepal, we want to help make that a reality for as many children as we can. We are delighted to be able to help with SATHI’s classroom improvement scheme in the village of Jamuna, in the Tanahaun area of Nepal.”
“Bring Back The Smile To Nepal will help fund the cost of new tables, carpeting, resources, educational materials and redecoration for the school. We have donated £1000 towards the project, which we hope will help ensure a better future for many of the children in Jamuna. I am pleased to report that work on the project will begin immediately and should be completed within one month.”
The ability to work in partnership with another charity marks another yet another step forward in the Bring Back The Smile To Nepal story. The charity, although formed less than 12 months ago, has already helped over 100 families in remote villages, is currently rebuilding an entire village in Gorkha province, and has received the backing of Joanna Lumley OBE.
“We are very pleased to assist SATHI Nepal with their programme of providing social and educational support to disadvantaged children in Nepal,” said Anna “we wish them lots of luck for the future.”
