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.
Having become passionate about the value of education in helping young people in the UK overcome the inequalities they face, I have decided to travel to Kathmandu, Nepal! I am aiming to develop my teaching experience and knowledge of how education is a tool for both the personal development of young people and sustainable societal growth in the developing world.
HVP schools offer free 'Values Based Education’ which combines the benefits of Western styles of teaching an academic curriculum with an emphasis on tolerance and a open-mindedness towards the role adults can play in their country in a global context, all whilst preserving their Nepali identity. They aim to prepare their students for their desired careers by nurturing their experience, self-confidence and aspirations.
You can read more about HVP Nepal’s activities here: https://www.hvpnepal-uk.org
Your kind donation will fund volunteers like myself to support HVP schools with teaching the curriculum, alongside supporting other HVP projects such as the Children’s Peace Home and the Womens’ Education Programme alongside the rebuilding of a HVP school destroyed by the 2015 earthquake.

About the fundraiser
I'm Jai, a student of History at Oxford. I'm going to Nepal this summer to help teach at a state school in Kathmandu. This will allow me to give some of my teaching experience, whilst challenging me and allowing me to see the value of education beyond the UK.
