Weʼre raising £250 to support a small charity that provides education for underprivileged students in Nepal and to help fund teaching volunteers, such as myself.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Hindu Vidyapeeth (HVP) schools provide free or low-cost education to mostly locals, and other people for whom private education (a path chosen by 60% of Nepali students) is too expensive. Government schools offer little in the way of educational opportunity, and suffer acutely from the political struggles and Maoist strikes which plague Nepal.
Donations enable work that reaches some of the most marginalised people in Nepali society, giving them opportunities that will enable them to transform their lives.
For more information on what HVP does as a charity, please take a moment to visit their website by clicking here.
Your donation will go towards:
1. Helping to send volunteers, such as myself, from Cambridge, Durham and Oxford to help with teaching. This increases the capacity of the school's teaching staff, offers opportunities for HVP students to practise their English with native speakers and increases their exposure to international cultures.
2. General funding for the organisation and their projects, including the Children's Peace Home and the Women's Education Programme. Additionally, donations help go towards rebuilding one of the organisation's schools which was devastated by a magnitude 7.9 earthquake, west of Kathmandu on April 25th 2015.
I really appreciate any help and look forward to revealing the positive impact of the donations with all those who help out.
P.S. If you ask me to, I'll write you a personalised Haiku to go with your donation! If that doesn't tempt you...

About the fundraiser
Tunbridge Wells, UK
Hi, I'm currently in my first year studying for a BA in History at the University of Oxford. This summer I'm travelling to China and Nepal to teach English and support the fantastic work that charities such as HVP are doing for disadvantaged children. However, I need your help!
