We would like to tell you about a project Namaste are helping to support.
Child Rescue Nepal report that because of midday meals, attendance at Saraswati Primary School in Nepal has risen by 41%. This funding has now been exhausted so Namaste has committed to continue funding the school meals and ask for your support in doing so.
It costs £2,660 per year to fund school meals at Dokotar primary school.
This works out at just 15p per day per child
90p per week per child (school is 6 days a week)
£28 per year per child (school is 10 months per year)
£28 x 95 students = £2,660 for the whole school per year
Please give whatever you can to help.
If you’ve already donated, thank you! If not, please give whatever
you’re able. Your support is very much needed and appreciated.
Poor families are faced with the unenviable dilemma of sending their little ones on an hour long walk to school with empty stomachs. Or substitute meals they can’t afford with homemade alcohol to fill them up for the day.
What better way to encourage school attendance than by offering a decent midday meal? The scheme not only provides an immediate
solution for basic needs, but also improves future life prospects
through education. Ongoing funding for this project is critical to
ensure these children remain in school and keep them out of the hands of traffickers.
Your generous donations so far of £1,424.90 will provide more children with a midday meal at Saraswati Primary School in Nepal. This in turn will encourage attendance at school and improve future prospects through education, preventing youngsters falling into the hands of traffickers.
We will continue to raise funds to include Fair Trade Fortnight 25 February – 10 March 2019
