Gifts that keep on giving...

This festive season, consider giving a gift to friends and family that is in fact a gift to a poor person or family in Nepal – a gift that will really change their life. The card or cards are sent to you in a separate envelope so you can personalise the card before sending it on. Remember - 100% of your donation/gift gets to the people who need it. Administration in both Australia and Nepal is voluntary.

 1. Education  $25 or $50 

You have been gifted educational materials for a rural Nepalese school …. 

a gift that keeps on giving.

Instead of a personal gift this festive season, you have been given a gift that will change people’s lives in a very real way. Your gift will provide much-needed educational material such as books or posters for a very poor rural school in the Rasuwa district of Nepal. Some of these schools have been devastated by the 2015 earthquake and are still being rebuilt but even prior to the earthquake, educational resources were almost non-existent.

 

 

 

 2. Hospital $75

You have been gifted a small item of equipment for a rural Nepalese hospital…. a gift that keeps on giving.

Instead of a personal gift this festive season, you have been given a gift that will change people’s lives in a very real way. Your gift will provide a much-needed small item of equipment for the newly built Rasuwa District Hospital at Jibajibe in Nepal. The hospital has been built but is poorly equipped, so even small items of equipment, things we take for granted in the west, are really appreciated. 

 

 

 

 

 3. Piglets $135

You have been gifted 2 piglets ….

 a gift that keeps on giving.

Instead of a personal gift this festive season, you have been given a gift that will change people’s lives in a very real way. Your gift will provide one of the poorest families in Rasuwa district, north of Kathmandu in Nepal, with enough money to buy a pair of piglets. This will enable the recipients to have an ongoing source of income and this will greatly improve their standard of living. All families participating in these programs must sign an agreement that their children will attend school; funds from one in every two sales of the off-spring will go towards their children’s education; they will save money in the village community’s “micro-savings program” every month; and they will give a piglet back to the community within a reasonable timeframe so that other families may be helped.

 

 4. Greenhouse $150

You have been gifted a Greenhouse ….

 a gift that keeps on giving

Instead of a personal gift this festive season, you have been given a greenhouse that will change other people’s lives in a very real way. Your gift will provide one of the poorest families in Rasuwa district, north of Kathmandu in Nepal, with enough money to buy everything they need to construct a simple greenhouse i.e. bamboo framework, plastic tarp roofing, a 500-litre water tank and water piping. This project, which began in 2016, has enabled recipients to earn between $US300 and $US700 a year – enough to greatly improve their standard of living. They walk their produce (often tomatoes) to the wholesalers in the town of Kalikasthan, about an hour away, or sell in the local Jibajibe markets.

 

 5. Goats $220

You have been gifted goats ….

 a gift that keeps on giving.

Instead of a personal gift this festive season, you have been given a gift that will change people’s lives in a very real way. Your gift will provide one of the poorest families in Rasuwa district, north of Kathmandu in Nepal, with enough money to buy a goat and her two kids at foot. This will enable the recipients to have an ongoing source of income and this will greatly improve their standard of living. The family which receives the goats will sign an agreement that their children will attend school; funds from one in every two sales of the off-spring will go towards their children’s education; they will save money in the village community’s “micro-savings program” every month; and they will give a goat back to the community within a reasonable timeframe so that other families may be helped.

You can further change a life by sponsoring a child’s education – a child who currently doesn’t go to school, and without assistance will remain illiterate. It’s just $5.50 a week or $260 a year. The illiteracy rate in the rural district of Rasuwa where we work, north of Kathmandu, is about 80%.
