A School Building in Rural Nepal

$8,402 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 126 people in 6 months
Created June 24, 2018
Dear all,

We have received a matching grant of $10,000 from one of our donors to build a school building in a remote village in Western Nepal.  Because of the donor's generosity, each of the funds raised online will be matched. 

We have come a long way with our schools in rural Nepal. We currently run two kindergartens and an elementary school in remote villages in Western Nepal. The villages lack access to basic infrastructures like roads, electricity and running water. Our schools are registered as non-profit schools and have a unique model to admit students from different economic backgrounds: parents with income sources pay on average just $125 a year for books, uniform, fees and all expenses; those who can't pay can volunteer for a certain number of days a year, and orphans and students without family support to attend school get free education, room, board and all essentials provided by the schools at their boarding facilities. Schools also operate agricultural farms and local businesses to generate incomes for the schools. We currently have 248 students in total. Among them, 13 orphans and eight other students stay at our hostel facilities. 

Currently, we are focusing on building a new school building and other essential infrastructures so that we can accommodate more students. We are already promised a matching grant of $10,000 by one of our generous donors. Please support us in raising the amount to build a school building and necessary infrastructures like solar panels and school boundary. 

Note: All donations are tax-deductible as the funds go to Impact Schools ( www.impactschools.ngo), a California 501 (c)(3) non-profit.  You will receive a tax receipt from PayPal  Giving Fund. Impact Schools has a 100% transparency policy and publishes each and every donation and expense in its website's transparency page ( http://www.impactschools.ngo/transparency) to make sure all funds are used appropriately. 

Thank you for your support.
