Teacher in Kaski, Nepal

Thanks to your gifts, Belu’s now one of many confident, skilled and happy teachers here in Nepal.

April 5th, 2014

Well, after two of the most amazing years, I’m now writing to you from back in the UK, where I’m slowly but surely getting settled into my old – but now quite strange – way of living.

Before I tell you about what I did in my last few weeks in Nepal, I’d first like to say an absolutely huge thank you.


The poorest children are completing primary school

When I arrived, the Dalit children in Nepal represented only about 1% of the children who complete primary school. But today with your help, in my Kaski schools the Dalit children, even the very poorest, are coming back every day and every term.

It’s an amazing transformation and your gifts are giving these little boys and girls a chance in life they’d only ever dreamed of.

I hope you enjoy reading about the great work your volunteer is doing to improve the lives of some of the world's poorest and most marginalised people. They're able to make a difference, all because of your support. Thank you.
