Within the first 6 months of the Manjushri Educational Project (Nepal charity registration number 1060/2066, estd. 2009), we have managed to raise enough funds to cover 29 students from Nepal and 16 students from Bhutan for two years.
The children of MEP are grateful for your support. Every dollar from you makes a difference for these needy children, who otherwise could not receive proper education.
Please note that no administration expenses are rendered as we are all volunteers helping in this project. All your donations will be directly and mindfully spent to purchase school uniforms, textbooks and stationeries, school admission and tuition fees.
We plan to support each child for the next 10 years till they finish secondary school. If you are interested to help us again, or sponsor a particular child’s educational expenses annually, please contact me if you need more information.
Thank you and may all be well and happy.
Thanks to Heika Wierenga for the updates. She is now in Nepal and providing assistance to the students in this project.
She said: ” these kids are sooo poor, she wore old slippers twice the size of her feet ”
Parents hid their children, declared some to be not normal, and put forward those, who probably had an inclination towards mischief.
They went to school with perhaps only a single set of clothes, the ones they were wearing, and with nothing on their feet.
Things haven’t changed much in many urban and rural schools. Today, the trend is such that most parents want to put their children in school as early as possible, or least much earlier than what government schools stipulate (at six years old), so that someone else can take care of the children as they worked. The logic remains the same – start early, finish early.
Education is free in Bhutan, a country proud of the Gross National Happiness. BUT all other expenses related to the child is not free. Uniforms, shoes, socks, stationery, food in schools and other expenses are not free.
This is where the Manjushri Educational Project comes in. We can provide the necessary funds to fill up the gaps. We have purchased school uniforms, shoes, books, stationary, and pocket money to the children to make their education.
Regular meetings are also held to provide better care and understanding the needs of the children.
YES. your donation makes a difference.
” I’m here in Nepal presently and witness the first 18 children learning so fast, since the kids have been enrolled, 5 month ago, they now read, write and speak some English. Khen Rinpoche is looking to place 100 more from this village. The goal is to offer school to all folks in this Sarki Village. …help us reach that goal please? ”
