Nepal Education Fund

Today I was presented with a cheque for NEF from the Interact Club at Dwight International School Canada.  It was the graduation ceremony for the grade 12 graduates.  This group of young people in the Interact Club raised $3000 for a poor school in Nepal and will provide the school with a basic library and science lab.  The school has 250 children from nursery to class 8 and does not have any facilities for a science program and no books.  The science teacher is teaching science to 8 classes with no practical equipment.  The school has a storage room which is being divided and made into a science lab and a library with a partition down the middle.  The school has an all female teaching contingent and Principal, a rarity in Nepal.  The students and teachers are very excited about this donation and the opportunity to have this facility.  I am so touched that the students from Dwight reached out to help the students in this school in Nakhipot, Nepal.  Young people helping other young people half a world away, what could be better.
Many, many thanks Interact Club, you touched my heart and gave the students of Mahalaxmi School a facility that will give them a better education.  Very well done!!  I will post photos of the completed project as soon as it is finished.
