⏰ What a difference 6 months can make even when the going gets tough!!!
💦🌪January 2020, visiting Bardia with Luke from Spartan Projects ,Jenna, an Aussie kindergarten teacher, and my 17 year old son Aymon, we made plans as to the work that needed to be done on the school in the old classrooms to make them comfortable for the kids who study in them...during the wet of the monsoon, the cold of the winter and the heat of the dry season!
🙏🏻 Thanks to YOU, our supporters, we raised the funds to render over ALL 10 of the old dusty brick and to install windows in place of rusty metal grates in 4 of those classrooms and that work is DONE ✅✅
THANK YOU ❤️🙏🏻💪🏻
👍👍 That means that as soon as school opens again, over 120 children can now sit comfortably in classrooms protected from the elements.
🙏🏻🙏🏻 This is a massive difference because of you and we want to thank each and every one of you who has contributed.
👀 We could focus on the things that have been put on hold during these uncertain times, OR we can focus on these wins!!!
💪🏻❤️ We are totally committed to continuing to support projects in Bardia and thank you for supporting us to do that, as we could not do it without you. ... See MoreSee Less
During Covid we were out hoarding stuff for our cupboards= LACK (There is only enough for me!)
In Bardia they were planting rice to make sure they have enough food ongoing = ABUNDANCE (Let's make sure there is enough for everyone).
Is it a lack of resources that is the real problem in our world or is it a lack of resourcefulness?
It is so reassuring to know what the people of Bardia are capable of even in moments of such immense challenge as what 2020 has thrown their way. On the border of India (the country with the highest number in the world of Covid cases), full lockdown, lack of medical facilities, extremely limited on-line learning facilities, zero income from tourism...and the list could go on.
What it says to us is that when the going gets tough the tough get going. The people of Bardia are tough and they are committed to focusing on the future. It excites us to know that it is the people of Bardia who we are supporting with our Bright Futures of Bardia project. Why?
All we are doing is planting a seed through our support in the education and health sectors, and they are the ones nurturing the crop and maximising what it becomes.
