UPDATE 28 AUGUST
Thanks to all of you who have donated so far to our fundraising for the Gorkha Development Scheme.
To add support to the fundraising, my fabulous sister Heather pledged to walk 100 miles this August, a HUGE personal challenge for her, and with just a few days to go she is on target to complete her goal! Lots of people have donated to Heather to add to our fantastic total, so again, thanks to everyone for their support.
This Spring I spent 3 weeks in Gorka working in local government schools with the youngest children and their teachers (nursery, class 1 & 2) as well as supporting the teacher in the class for children with special needs. Working in bare classrooms trying to support a more interactive style of teaching with very limited dirty resources, NO books or toys was quite a challenge! I’m now passionate about raising funds to continue the work I started during this visit. Please help me raise funds to; provide some basic toys and stimulating resources for the children in the special needs class, picture books for the younger children and sponsorship for children from extremely poor families to attend school. Each sponsored child gets the opportunity to go to school with a new school uniform, shoes, school bag, exercise books and stationary items and has access to sanitary education.
Everybody involved with GDS both in the U.K. and Gorkha does so voluntarily, so every pound you donate will go directly to Gorkha You can be sure your money will make a lasting difference.
