My Nickels for Nepal Volunteer trip
Nickels for Nepal is registered as a non-profit Federal 501c3 and no one gets paid through the non-profit foundation.All funds raised go directly to Nepal to support the programs we support in the remote village schools, and educational needs of the school children. All travel expenses are paid by individual volunteers visiting Nepal to travel to remote village schools. I have traveled to Nepal in 2010 and again in 2014 as the Chairman of the Board for Nickels for Nepal at my own expense. Due to the disastrous earthquakes in Nepal I am planning on going back to Nepal in September for three weeks to visit the remote Mijar Village and Gorkha Village schools to check on the status of the schools and the students we sponsor as well as develop a fundraising goal to meet their needs for next year. I will also be visiting other remote villages that were severely impacted by the disastrous earthquakes to determine how we can provide educational assistance to the village schools. As a retired teacher I am on a very fixed income and need help to pay for this important volunteer trip in September. Donations received will be used to cover my expected travel expenses of $1500.00 for airfare, $100.00 ground transportation, $50.00 for visa application, $1250.00 lodging, and $100.00 for meals. Any support you could provide will be greatly appreciated.
