No space to play!

Dear friends,

I am trying to raise money for a small village school in Sikkim to buy and level some land in order to make a playground for the children. This has become a government requirement, and the school must comply if it is to retain its registered status. The total cost will be around £6400, and so I will need to try various ways of getting there.

It’s an expensive project because, like almost every building in Sikkim, the school has been built on a steep slope. Extra land needs to be purchased from the local farmer, and then levelled to make the playground. The children’s parents have managed to raise £2615 ($3156) which is quite a sacrifice on their part, so I need to raise approximately £3778 ($4558) to get them over the line.

One way of raising money is to persuade you to sponsor me on the 9 day trek in Nepal that I am doing in October! I now have £143.75  towards my modest target of £250. Some of this has been donated by friends via the Wonderful website which is a convenient, tailor-made fund-raising portal which doesn’t charge HELP a fee for their services. Would you be willing to back me? If so, please click on this link:

HELP is rare for an organisation offering volunteer teaching in that it puts the needs of the local people before the desires of the western person wanting ‘the experience’.
