I would appreciate any, small or big, donations to help fund my volunteering at Maya Universe Academy in July 2018. I will spend 3 and a half weeks giving all I can to the children who need us; I will be teaching English and helping the construction team improve the school. After doing a lot of research, I have decided go to go this school because education is the key to personal growth and a country's development. The money I raise will not only help me get to Nepal, but it will go towards my purchasing of pencils, paper and simple children's literature that these deserving children have been denied of having.
Here is a bit of information from the school:
Nepal, with a 60% literacy rate, has a high demand for affordable and accessible educational institutions. In 2011, 90% of private school students were admitted to a secondary educational institution compared to 46% of public school students. This cannot only be the fault of the students. Little children with heavy bags on their back mugging up the alphabets cannot be held responsible. If Nepalese children had an equal shot at education, the country could begin to solve the majority of its problems independently. Nepal needs more professionals, such as teachers, doctors, architects, lawyers, business managers, and diplomats, to build Nepal. Until the problem of unequal and incomplete education is tackled head on, NGOs, local government assistance, and foreign aid will not rescue the country from poverty. The revolution has to come as a grassroots initiative within our communities. The country has little hope for government schools, as they are inefficient, ill managed, and corrupt similar to the government that runs them. The entrepreneurs who back private charter schools are motivated by profits and do not cater to the needs of the poor or rural families. This led to the formation of Maya Universe Academy; a non-profit, community-run organization, which finds innovative ways to provide quality education free of cost. We operate with the help of local and international volunteers and by our own dedication to hard work. We drink spring water, tend fields, cook on an open fire, and bare the harsh conditions of living in a remote village of Nepal with a lot of fun in order to offer the opportunity of education to children otherwise overlooked.
