Help me fund the last part of our new school

I'm on site in Nepal helping to build a school for 450 children

Help me fund the very last part of our big school project, which we've been working on relentlessly for more than 2 years. I'm at the school site RIGHT NOW working with my own (very unskilled) hands to help finalise the construction. This project means a lot to me, and I need £1500 to fund additional costs for safety railings and plantation to ensure the kids don't fall down the steep parts of the school site

Today Sunday 25 March, we arrived in Melamchi, met the kids and saw the progress of the school, and I'm really REALLY proud of what we've done with East Point Academy

We've spent the good part of two years doing what no other charity in Nepal has done before, which is turning a well functioning private school into a charitable trust, and then building a new school for them. Since the earthquake the kids have been taught in temporary bambu shelters, often under very harsh weather conditions, and they really deserve a break. The school is run by the community and operates a very humane financial model where 80% of the families pay tution (the ones which can afford it), which subsidizes the remaining 20% of the families who otherswise could not afford education for their kids.

What we've done to date:

  • We've funded the full $200k for the main construction, which is the biggest project we've taken on so far.
  • We've designed and committed to build a really modern school, with no shortcuts and no compromises.
  • The core AOKC team have taken no salaries, spending weekends and evenings working on our various projects in Nepal, and have been paying any expenses out of our own pockets. This means we can keep promising donors that 100% of online donations go towards the projects.
  • We've completed 80% of the construction process, and are now 2 months away from opening the new school.

Every little bit helps!
