    Story

    In association with the Gurkha Welfare Trust Jersey, Highlands College is aiming to raise £40,000 to enable 15 students and 4 members of staff to embark on the project in the Lamjung region of Nepal.

    John Pinel from the Gurkha Welfare Trust Jersey, who deliver financial, medical and community aid in Nepal said: “The Gurkha Welfare Trust Jersey has so far raised funds to build 4 schools and 3 community centres in Gurkha Communities in Nepal, which were destroyed in the 2015 or an earlier earthquake. We fully support the Highlands College team taking part in a once in a lifetime experience. The group will leave Jersey on 28 April and return on 12 May and for the two weeks will be teaching at the Shree Guanda School in the hills of Nepal. This will be a challenging but really exciting opportunity for the students and we thank them for their kind support.”

    This is the second year Highlands has organised a trip to Nepal, after an earthquake devastated the country in 2015. The Shree Guanda School has been rebuilt so the project’s focus is to ensure the school is sustainable and has adequate resources for the children.

    The Highland’s students will be responsible for planning and delivering lessons, with the support of staff. Implementing an English and Sports Development programme for the local children will help to inspire hope and ambition amongst the community, subsequently improving their overall wellbeing.

    Matthew Corbin, CEO of BDO Group in Jersey said “BDO is proud to partner with Highlands College and the Gurkha Welfare Trust to support this project. It provides an opportunity for Jersey students to gain a unique experience, an adventure that will provide new perspectives. At the same time it supports the important work of the Gurkha Welfare Trust and provides direct support to the Shree Guanda School.”

    Thank you for your support. Every penny counts.
