About a month ago, two Parikrma students went up to their teacher to say that they wanted to do something for the children in Nepal that have been devastated by the recent earthquake. That was when Parikrma decided to raise funds for the children in Nepal whose lives have been shattered by the recent earthquakes.
Parikrma children have already started the process by sacrificing something from the very little they have so they can save money to rebuild a school in Nepal. Many children are now walking to school each day and giving up their bus money to the “Heart for Nepal” box that has been set up in each of our 4 schools.
We want to help rebuild a school in Phatpur village in Nuwakot district in Nepal close to the base camp of the Mt Everest trek . This school has been totally demolished and considered unsafe for the 360 children that study there.
It is horrifying that 2 kids from this school have lost their lives and many villagers have been buried under the rubble. What happened in Nepal is a crisis that will impact the rest of the world. It is our students that suggested that while everyone is contributing to build homes and hospitals not enough attention has not been given to rebuild schools. We have therefore planned a music concert on the 11th July where the famous Sufi singer Kavita Seth will be performing at the Chowdiah Memorial Hall.
Throught this concert, we hope to raise Rs 20 Lakhs required to rebuild the school with 10 classrooms, computer room and library for 360 children. We do hope you will contribute generously towards this cause. You may contribute directly on this Milaap site or you could visit Book My Show and buy tickets for the concert. You could of course do both!!
We know we do not have the competence to get into infrastructure and will partner with Ani Foundation of Nepal to get this school built. This time we will be using earthquake proof material for future safety. Parikrma will also take the responsibility of training the teachers and helping in the curriculum. Our little students have offered to use less pages in their exercise books and donate some books and material to their friends in Nepal. It is truly becoming a world without boundaries.
