ICRI Himalayas Trek Challenge - Music Night
Organized by: Sabrina Chin
EVENT DATE Feb 23, 2016
As many of you may already know, I will be trekking in the Himalayas for 11 days to fundraise for International Child Resource Institute (ICRI) (EIN: 942835018) and their early childhood education projects and schools in Nepal. This campaign contributes to rebuiding the schools that were destroyed in the earthquakes last spring.
As part of my fundraising efforts, please join me on Tuesday, February 23rd at 7pm for an evening of music featuring Emily Zisman at Saul's Restaurant & Delicatessen in Berkeley, CA. Appetizers and wine will accompany your entry fee.
If you're not able to make the event, but would like to contribute to the cause, please donate through this page.
Thank you in advance for your time, consideration and generosity in helping me meet my Challenge and supporting ICRI’s work in Nepal.
Note: The iPad mini4 raffle winner has been contacted. Thanks to everyone who participated and for your generous support in ICRI's work in Nepal!
About the Campaign
The earthquakes in the spring impacted nineteen of ICRI’s schools, which serve over 10,000 of the poorest Nepalese children (many of whom are orphans)--nine buildings have been severely or fully destroyed, including the school inside the Balmandir Orphanage (Nepal's largest group home for orphaned children).
This campaign contributes to rebuilding the schools, providing trauma care and earthquake relief efforts, ongoing education and supplies, and teacher training around child-centered education. Contributing to these critical foundations will begin to break the bonds of caste and poverty to assure that every child will have the opportunity to reach the highest levels of accomplishment in Nepalese society.
About ICRI’s Nepal Program
Through ICRI's National Center for Learning Resources (NCLR), Network for Children, Prisoners and Dependents (NCPD), the training and development of staff at the Balmandir Orphanage, and many other programs, ICRI has worked in Nepal for 13 years and acts as one of the major nonprofit organizations to move the country from great challenges to successful outcomes.
ICRI’s National Center on Learning Resources (NCLR) currently has 19 schools that provide preschool, primary, and in some cases secondary, education to more than 10,000 Nepali children (a majority of which are the poorest children in Nepal). These highly innovative, creative programs build the abstract reasoning capabilities of each child, while honoring the family and the community as a provider of input in their growth and development.
