Thijmen's Acts Of Kindness fundraiser for Nepal

A 21st century school, run by and for the local community

For many of us access to primary education seems like a given, but for the children of Nepal, it is not at all. Today you can make a real and tangible difference to 450 children, and help them get an education buy supporting AOKC to build the first of its kind, state of the art, community driven school. By support East Point Academy you will radically change the lives of an entire region of Nepal for years to come.

Why are we building this school?
East Point Academy was founded 12 years ago aiming to provide quality education to marginalized kids, but was tragically destroyed during the 2015 earthquake, along with 25,000 other schools which affected 1.7 million children.

Following the disaster, East Point Academy set-up temporary classrooms using bamboo and metal sheeting to be able to continue to educate pupils. However, the makeshift situation is no longer a viable solution and children now urgently need your support, to help create a better, safer, quality environment for them to receive an education.

Who does the school help?
The 450 students are a mixture of different castes and ethnic groups with around 7% from the lowest caste who are considered ‘un-touchable’ in Nepali culture. The kids are between 2 and 15 years old covering the grades 0-12 as well as Nursery.

Our £500 challenge
All donors helping us with £500 or more contribution will forever be remembered in the local community as we will create an art piece on the school grounds and write everyone's name as a reminder of all the kind hearts that helped us make this a reality.
