BENEFITING: SHIKSHYA FOUNDATION NEPAL
EVENT DATE: May 08, 2015
For Reeva's Birthday we are trying to raise some money that will help bring back smiles on the faces of a few in Nepal. Reeva is very young to understand the significance of gifts...but if you would still insist, we ask for your donations in lieu of gifts. We promise to let y'all spoil her when she grows up.
About the Charity:
SHIKSHYA FOUNDATION NEPAL http://shikshyafoundationnepal.org/:
Shikshya Foundation Nepal seeks to oversee and facilitate the education of children in need from primary school through secondary school and higher education. Through partnerships with like minded schools and organizations throughout Nepal, we have been able to work closely with children on an individual and personal level. Our hope is to enrich the lives of Nepalese youth by providing them with holistic growth as well as financial, social and emotional support.
The immediate need on the ground is for medical support, search and rescue, emergency shelters and food and water among many other things. As the days, weeks and months go by and after the humanitarian needs are addressed, Nepal will need to begin the healing and rebuilding process. The magnitude of the damage is still being assessed, but hundreds of buildings have collapsed including many homes and many of Nepal’s ancient and iconic temples and monuments.
