Project Nepal – How you can help

Project Nepal

As teachers, we choose to work with children because we love working with them. We choose this work because we believe that we can make a positive impact on their lives, which—we hope—will extend far beyond our time with them.

This can be a tough thing to teach. Often we just have to hope and wait to see if they put to use what we say and do. But Project Nepal offers an exception; here we have the phenomenal opportunity to not only serve the greater good, but to watch our children applying what we’ve taught them where it really counts.

I have the unparalleled privilege of coordinating Project Nepal, a service project with a simple goal: two communities helping each other. Our ACS Egham International School community raised awareness and funds for nearly a year to support Shree Mahendra Upper Primary School in Bhaktapur, which is just outside Central Kathmandu.
