Charity event in aid of women in Nepal - Thornton Hough, Wirral
I can bore you to death with the details of the appeal but basically we have enough money to fund 3 projects which are off the starting blocks now:
• training for 100 teachers and sponsor 14 girls in the Lower Solu Khumbu (Everest) region with vocational training aimed at creating long-term livelihood opportunities and economic independence. This training would be made available for girls at a high school level, either in school or who have dropped out, providing them skills in practical trades.
• bursaries for 20 Thulipokhari girls for 2 years to attend school. Room & board, tuition, books, supplies and uniforms will all be paid. A micro lending program will be available to them when they finish, allowing them to start a small business.
• computer literacy classes to Tharu women and girls. We will purchase 20 computers and in the first 2 years train 80 women and 10 teachers to be able to use computers in their income generation. The training will continue over 5 years with a final goal of training 200 women.
• more projects will come on-stream as the money is raised.
If you just fancy going for a nice tea with pleasant music and a quiz this is for you!
There is also a raffle with fantastic prizes - TV, case of fine wine, Pamper Hamper, £30 Marks and Spencer's vouchers and at least 4 more. Tickets £1 from me to be drawn on 13 March.
Can I apologise if you are not the slightest bit interested in this - I am just telling people I know. Thanks for your patience.
