Waheguru ji ka Khalsa

Waheguru je ke Fateh

Dear Sangat

Sikh Channel Aid successfully raised over £5,000 from the UK Scafell Pike Charity Walk. Following on from this success our UK and Canadian team also organised and successfully executed a long walk in Ontario around the St Louis Mountain to raise funds for the School education project in Nepal.

This project is not the first time Sikh Channel Aid has laid a helping hand to the nation of Nepal. Firstly, Sikh Channel generated funds to support the tragic earthquake in 2015, which killed nearly 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000. It occurred at 11:56 Nepal Standard Time on 25 April, with a magnitude of 7.8. Various individuals from the department ran surveys on Sikh and Nepali families on what is needed to assist and impact victims efficiently on a day to day basis. The results highlighted a desperate need for help with children’s education. Currently, there are estimated to be in the range of 7000 to 8000 Sikhs residing in Nepal. A large proportion require support and live in secluded areas. The department has identified a very small village named Bankatwa which has 12 Sikh families residing in extreme poverty.

Our main goal in the village of Bankatwa, Nepal is to build an education institute. We think it is essential to educate the local children and ensure they do not remain illiterate. SIkh Channel Aid have organised for a teacher from North India to commit to 3 days a week in Nepal. This teacher also has qualifications to teach English. The education institute will aim to educate all children from the age of 3 to the age of 21. The fundamental principle behind the project is the idea of sustainability. Once an individual becomes educated they are able to invest socio-economically into the country of Nepal and the village of Bankatwa. Consequently this hand in hand develops the country economically and allows no child to remain uneducated and illiterate.

Please help Sikh Channel Aid to succeed and reach our goal to help the less fortunate of Nepal and donate to further build on the previous successful charity events.
