HIKING FOR EDUCATION
by Kohila Palanisamy
Kohila will be taking on her first challenging trek to conquer Everest Base Camp in order to create awareness and raise money to build a primary school in rural Nepal.
Build A School, Build A Future
Education is the ticket to knowledge, to freedom, to life. The children in rural Nepal lost their school to the earthquake last April and Kohila has taken initiative to make a difference and help rebuild it.
Our goal is to build an elementary school for 45 children in the remote village of Dovan in the Lalitpur district in Nepal. Help us raise 5000 MYR for building materials!
The school will be built using standard materials such iron, stone and cement. This cost and time effective method of construction is the standard government-approved model for building schools in Nepal. We will be working alongside with CASD-Nepal, a local organization who will ensure the support of their in-field engineer, guaranteeing an earthquake-proof structure.
Construction will begin on May 26th and it will take approximately one month to complete. We will be working with volunteers from across the globe, as well as local skilled workers such as stone masons.
