Namaste! I would first like to express the profoundest gratitude to my benefactors in this Nepali venture!  Every gift has been greatly appreciated. See More

THE STORY:

For years, I have wanted to be a big brother to children in south-east Asia, but something has always come up to thwart my intention. School, work, and monetary concerns have all tried to stop me. However, now I have decided that I am just going to step out in faith, and go. The time: January, 2017. My destination: Saping, a small village in the hills of eastern Nepal. My aim: teaching English at Medaka Family School. This school functions differently than other private schools in that it offers completely free education, particularly for the poorer children of Saping village. The traditional caste system of Nepal doesn't exist within the school; all children are treated equally regardless of their cultural background. Please read more here: http://www.innatepension.com/medaka-family-school/info/the-vision. 

This is where I hope to go. But I cannot do this alone. I am currently studying at college and will be volunteering in Saping during Winter break. And so I am in the usual college student's predicament: no money. And no money means no airfare, no food, no lodging: in short, no volunteering. That is why I am asking you to consider donating to support my teaching journey. Even $10 or $15 would be amazing! A trip halfway around the world is expensive, and that is why I need your help.

Remember, donating here is not giving to me: it is giving to the children of Nepal. Every dollar that I raise beyond trip expenses will go directly to the Medaka Family School. I thank you, in advance!
