Project update for September 2021

Current Covid stats for Nepal
Current Covid stats for Nepal

A brief summary of the situation in Nepal.

We are still able to keep in touch with our team via regular Skype/Zoom meetings, but it is not the same as being there and renewing our sense of what a wonderful difference our giving creates in the lives of the nearly sixty children we care for.

We are very aware of the challenges being faced in Nepal and this quote from a 32-year-old woman sums up the situation:

Even if food items were available in the market, food prices were increased by 4 times, and we could not afford it. I have two children and I need to earn money each day to provide food to my family otherwise we have to sleep without food. I have no alternative source of income. In our community, we have 30–40 households that are severely affected by this. It is a really very terrible situation for poor families like ours.”

Raja and the team in Nepal are meeting these challenges daily, and have been ensuring our children are safe, cared for and home-schooled during the recent restrictions.

NEWS Highlights

1. We have consolidated our various activities to address the Covid-19 situation, and that’s reflected in the changed Project Title of our GlobalGiving project.

2. We have a new committee member for IGWR Inc. and are really delighted to have Dr Hillary Wallace working with us.

3. We are happy to announce that our recent 3 SEE ( YEAR 10 ) graduates have been Enrolled for year 11- and 12 at Bagmati college, Kathmandu. All thanks to your generosity!

4. We met all our commitments for the last financial year with an income of $126,411. The budget for the year ahead is $170,964 and so we now have a lot to achieve this year.

5. Looking after nearly sixty kids during a pandemic is an amazing challenge, but so far, they are all doing well, and maybe home schooling has been better than what the Nepal Education System offers!

 

                    Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher, can change the world.

Our story continues to shine in a world somewhat broken

The unfolding of the Covid-19 pandemic has given us all an unwelcome opportunity to look again at the future.

In a world filled with division, selfishness and greed the IGWR story stands against the tide.

We dream of a better future, and we participate in making that dream a reality.

The act of ‘giving’ is the act of creation; it is echoed in ancient wisdom around the globe; and yet we still hear of the major G20 countries hoarding covid-19 vaccines.

To change this ‘norm’, we need to change, and every act of giving and sharing is a step toward that change.

What’s next?

1. We need to share the IGWR story; our website and facebook pages are filled with the reality of individuals coming together to make a real difference. Please take a look, help us improve our story telling and share YOUR story, tell others of the ‘giving’ you are involved in.

2. We want to find more regular donors/sponsors to enable us to shine more brightly; and give more kids the opportunities we have had.

3. The GlobalGiving “LittleXLittle” campaign starts on September 13th, it is a wonderful example of “a little can make a big difference”. and it is an opportunity to add 50% to your gift.

4. Some of us who cannot travel to Nepal are donating our airfares to the work of IGWR-Nepal, it’s a great way to fly.... when you cannot fly! It would be great if this became a trend!

 

And know that we ourselves are changed by what we give....

So, thank you for sharing in making the world a better place for all.
