Yangchen Gatshel Lower Secondary School is a small K-8 school in a semi-rural village in Bhutan. The students and teachers at the school make up a wonderful community notable for its kindness, generosity, resilience and commitment to education. I have been teaching at this school since February 2013 and having observed school life for the past six months, would like to raise money to improve the quality of resources available to students and teachers at the school.

You can find out more about the reasons why I am raising money and how the resources would be used through the link below.

Whoa! Nearly $2500 raised in about a week! If I weren't still so bowled over by the phenomenal experience that was Global Hand Washing Day at YGLSS then I would barely know how to thank you all for your support. I thought a few pics of the kiddies in action might do the trick...Thanks all.

Once again, as you know I LOVE soccer and I feel the girls should have a chance with their team. So, my donation goes directly to the girls soccer team
