THE STORY:

CUT AND PASTE THE LINK NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE TO DONATE. MANY THANKS!!

Hello friends and family,

I'm traveling to Tanahun District in rural Nepal at the end of July for four weeks to volunteer at a school that is dedicated to providing free, quality education to children who otherwise have no access to schooling. This organization, called the Maya Universe Academy, has now opened three schools in the foothills of the Himalaya, and in addition to its teaching responsibilities, is working on developing sustainable solar energy production systems that can be installed and maintained by villagers.  Furthermore, the founders of Maya Universe Academy are committed to improving the lives of everyone in the village, especially women and girls.

Please help me raise the funds I will need to be able to cover the myriad of expenses that this trip entails, including flights, tourist visa, vaccinations, clothing, shoes, and books for the children, and my room and board of $50/ week. This school relies on volunteers to teach the students, care for the campus, cook meals, and look after the school's livestock.

Let's all give what we can to make the lives of the lowest caste in Nepal a little easier.

NOTE:  I've increased my goal to account for the cut paypal takes from each donation.  I hadn't anticipated the difference this would make!  I'm new at this :).  There is no other practical way to accept credit card donations.  If you'd like to send cash or a check, please email me at leandra.grimm@gmail.com for my mailing address.  Also, please note that every dollar I raise that I don't end up spending on travel expenses will go directly to the school.  The whole goal of this trip is to help Maya Universe Academy make a real difference in the community, and although my volunteer time will certainly help the organization, cash donations make the biggest impact.

I'm astounded by the support I've received from you all.  I'm humbled by your generosity, and even more motivated to make a difference. THANK YOU!
