2015 Annual Report

Namaste!  This has been an incredibly formative year with great challenges and also great growth. Both continue. It might help to know how we got started, or you may be looking for information about claiming a deduction on your 2015 taxes, but if neither of these two things apply, let's get right down what we have accomplished (and not) in 2015:   Earthquake Reconstruction Tough Decisions, School Rebuilding: We received $15,000 in donations in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and we allocated this to a school reconstruction project. Helping to rebuild a school aligned…Read more

Visiting our scholars from Himalaya Boarding High School.

Pictures from the visit with our scholars at Himalaya Boarding School, Budhanilkantha, Kathmandu. Maiti had gone to her village, Sindhupalchok during Dashain and Tihar vacation. According to her, there was no proper shelter available and kids were studying in bamboo shelters after the earthquake. Ganga and Kelsang stayed at home and did their vacation homework.
