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.
Helambu Education and Livelihood Partnership (HELP) provide an essential service to around 46 remote schools helping the children of this region.
Due to difficult accessibility of numerous villages populated mostly by Hyolmo and Tamang ethnic minority communities, government support is very limited even for the most basic facilities. Rather than simply implementing external projects, they work closely with local communities and the School Management Committee in order to foster a sense of ownership and pride of local schools and a greater engagement with education amongst local community members.
Most of the villages are located in terraced hills with very difficult land topography, which has been a major hurdle to the development of the region. While many new dirt roads have been constructed in these regions in recent years, these are often destroyed and unusable during the monsoon season.
The earthquake in April 2015 has had a devastating effect on the progress H.E.L.P has made over recent years in delivering essential equipment and school bags to the children and their aim now is one of necessity to build Temporary learning centres to continue the children’s learning before the Monsoon hits.
