How can you help us?
Donate to HEAD Nepal
HEAD Nepal is a small organization that has just started activities. Therefore we are happy about any kind of support to develop and extend our programme. To those who are interested in joining HEAD in one way or another, here are ways you can become involved:
Head Nepal has recently set up a residential programme to provide intensive training for children with disabilities. We require funds to keep this programme running, e.g. for
- Building a new residential center
- Furniture and other equipment
- Learning materials
- Food and accommodation for the children
- Clothes/dresses, and hygienic materials for the children
- Medications and treatment for the children
Sponsor the education of a child with disability
In the residential programme, currently 45 children with disabilities are being trained and they will be prepared for effective studies in regular mainstream education. This is a way for them to break the cycle of illiteracy and to open the gateway to a successful and bright future. With 50 dollars per month you ensure education, food and shelter for a child.
Support for Mobile School
In order to educate more children with disabilities in rural communities in the Himalayas and to expand operations to other parts of the country, we are running and will continue to do so for coming years. Additional horses are needed both to carry teachers, tents, Braille kits and other supplies necessary to operate the mobile schools.
If you wish to make a financial donation, please contact Chhitup Lama at email@example.com for Head Nepal official bank account.
