Well, after all that work, back-and-forth stress, and endless paperwork, our friendly bank here in the USA didn’t approve our international bank account application. In response, we gave them the American Salute, and opened up a different account to avoid paying exorbitant bank fees and ensure that ALL of the money donated ends up in the hands of these students. Long story, but the moral is:
FUNDS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO NEPAL!
It’s hard to imagine that it’s been over 9 months since we began this project and your generous donations started pouring in. We’re up to $3,530 in donations, over 85% of the way to our goal. If you have an extra buck to spare, can you donate to help 30 children in remote Nepal receive an education? Or, can you click on the facebook button at the bottom and share this with friends to help us reach our goal?
Thank you as always for your support and included in this post are some pictures of the notebooks that have been purchased thus far. More updates to follow!
Hundreds of scholarship forms have been received and we will choose 30 students to receive supplies, uniforms, and a fully funded school year thanks to your donation!
As promised, if you donated $140 or more to support a student for the year, you will receive a letter and photo from your sponsored child when they receive their items. Thank you for your patience, as we finalize these international transactions.
