For some of us, it’s hot and humid. For others, like our lovely kiddies in Nepal, it is freezing!
The children have finished their winter vacation and are back in the classrooms again. Wrapped up in woollens, they brave the cold mornings and skip around the many puddles as they make their way to school.
This year we have the funds to pay for an after school tutor to assist those children who particularly need help. A few of the girls are struggling with mathematics so we will place emphasis on that subject. We are also looking at getting all the children into an activity to enhance their education, for example soccer, dancing, art and craft. The three children who have been doing karate for the last few years have really benefited from the experience.
Some words of appreciation: Thank you to the women from Auckland who knitted jumpers for the children. They have been wearing them non-stop this winter!
A big thank you to our accountant Hari who is such a dedicated member of our team with a strong work ethic. Hari emails me financial reports and daily updates at 11pm – well after his bedtime! Kathmandu is experiencing 11 hour power cuts which limit the opportunities to get on the internet. Thank you Hari!
