FHC is working to address the current education crisis caused by the Nepal earthquake, and its aftermath. Part of this process is to provide students with the tools to become educated, which will result in empowered young people.
A proper school bag and school resources (pens, pencils, exercise books etc) is a necessity for any child's education, and even more so for those travelling great distances to school on foot. It is not unusual for these young people attending school to walk 3 hours a day for an education, always carrying books in their arms. Sadly it is beyond the financial capabilities of most Nepalese village families, to provide this most basic package to their children.
These school bags and educational packs are not only a practical item for the children in the remote villages of Nepal, they will bring new hope and dignity to thousands of children who really do understand they are valued when they witness the rest of the world extending a helping hand.
A school bag and school resources become powerful items in the hands of children who have never been provided with them. This is a direct investment in students, who will become active agents of change, and provide hope for the future of Nepal.
You can buy any number of bags for $30 each. Each bag will be complete with pencils, exercise books, and an all important hygiene pack. Once you purchase a bag, it will be delivered to a school child in one of the schools we work with in Nepal. (You will not receive anything in the mail yourself).
