Date: December 2012 / November 2013
Partners: HELP (Helambu Education Livelihood Project) and Mondo Challenge
Project 1 – ‘In Country’. SIAB were introduced to Jimmy Lama, founder of HELP (Helambu Education Livelihood Project) who receive funding from the UK charity Mondo Challenge. Following several skype conversations Jimmy and his team sourced the contents for the SchoolBags in Katmandu. Money was wired in Oct 2012 and by Dec 2012, 1000 children from 6 schools were running around the foothills of the Himalayas wearing little red rucksacks.
Project 2 – ‘In Country’. In July 2013 a further sum was wired to Nepal to fund a further 500 SchoolBags for children in 7 schools.
In November 2013, SIAB will fund phase III, a 500 SchoolBage top up project where the contents from phase I will be assessed by HELP and replaced if necessary.
From February – April 2014 SIAB will fund a further 800 SchoolBags in association with HELP.
