Story

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.

Thank you


Help a Child in Nepal this Christmas

We all over indulge at Christmas eating for eating’s sake and receiving presents we don’t really need. Please spare a thought for less fortunate, vulnerable children in Nepal. 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.

The cost of keeping a child fed at school for a year is just £28. Ironically, this is less than the average price for 24 large cans of premium lager in the UK. One less thing we need this Christmas?
