Nepal is the among the poorest countries in the world with thousands upon thousands of children as orphans, with no real home, no family, and no opportunity to get an education. Although some are state-run, most of their orphanages rely heavily on donations and volunteers to help support and care for their children. Without these donations, these children will have no place to go.
Through International Volunteer HeadQuarters, I will be travelling to Nepal to volunteer at a rural orphanage for two weeks. I will be assisting the children with their day-to-day routines, providing them with health education, daily care, teaching basic English, and creating activities to stimulate and entertain them. Above all, I want to provide the children with supplies to entertain and educate them.
My goal is to bring along as many toys, books, school supplies, clothing, hygienic supplies, shoes, games, stationary etc., that I possibly can; and that's where I need your help. I would love to fill an additional suitcase full of stuff for the kids, as well as cash to purchase items for them once I can see specifically what they need. You can help me achieve my goal by donating money so I can purchase items such as: basic literacy English books, basic hygiene supplies, art or school supplies, games, and toys. Every thing will directly go to the children I will be with, as I will be personally donating them and purchasing the supplies; so every dollar counts.
Your generosity means everything and anything you can do to help me achieve my goal is most appreciated.
