Give Hope to Children in Earthquake-Affected Areas of Nepal

We want to give 1000 kids the gift of learning this Christmas

Even before the devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015, the Nepalese education system faced many challenges: poor facilities, a lack of trained teachers, and high dropout rates. Since 1996, GAN has been working in some of the poorest and most marginalised districts to help fix these problems; in addition to these programmes, we are now also building temporary schools and houses, and providing specialist training in disaster management and psychological counselling.

This Christmas, we are launching our 'Schoolbag for Life' Campaign, where we hope to provide 1000 schoolbags to children who either lost theirs in the earthquakes, or who never had them in the first place. The bags are well-made, and contain books, pencils, a water bottle, a small blackboard & chalk, a lunch box and a geometry set. We have already given 1000 away, and having seen the massive impact this had, we want to give more. We have the supplier, transportation and schools lined up - all we need is the money. 

If you can, please help us give a Nepalese child a Schoolbag for Life this Christmas. For every donation, we will email you (or a nominated person) a Thankyou Certificate, decorated with pictures drawn by Nepalese children and details of what your donation  is purchasing. In addition, once the children have received their bags, we will send you photos and videos of the event.
