🏃♀️🏃♂️ For some of us the lockdown of Covid 19 is coming to an end. Things are starting to open up and with each day we begin to regain more of our freedom. We know we need to continue to be prudent, but we can't help but sing and dance a little as we race off to see family and friends we have not seen in the flesh for a couple of months.
🇳🇵🇳🇵For other countries, particularly those with limited resources, they are far from being 'released'. Nepal is one of those, with all restrictions being extended, and an end to lockdown nowhere in sight.😷😷
💲❌💲❌ Many of us have been hit with significant financial hardship during this time, and there is still uncertainty for what lays ahead. Nepal has had zero tourism in this their peak season, and that is a massive income generator for them. They are yet to know if they will also lose the second season for the year which is September October November.
🙁🙁The uncertainty is tough for anyone. We recognise and value the importance of supporting communities in need around the globe and continue to do so even during these challenging times.
💪💪A group of us should have been in Bardia in April working on the renovation of old classrooms to give them a learning space that ignites and fuels their hunger for learning. Our plan didn't go as it was supposed to due to Covid. But that won't always stop us. As soon as we can we will be back.
😍😍We have raised the funds to renovate the old classrooms, to render them, paint them and make them safe with replacement of the electrics. What if we can give them windows too, so they can stay warm in the cold season and dry in the wet season? What if we can give them all new desks and benches so they can study comfortably?
👩🏫👨🏫Whilst many of our kids are at home studying online in front of their computers with unlimited access to internet, the kids in Bardia are at home with their families, with no access to any learning resources at all.
💁♂️💁♀️How excited will they be going back to a school that has been renovated for them??
😍😍We would love to make that happen and we would love you to join us.
🥳🥳It costs AUD $30 to buy a new whiteboard, $75 for a desk and bench for 2 students, $120 for the paint for a classroom, $700 for all the windows needed for an entire classroom, or anywhere in between.

We have amazing humans supporting our Bright Futures of Bardia campaign. This is Luke Conners who is the builder leading a team of builders heading to Nepal to renovate our community school. The trip was due to happen a few weeks ago. We have postponed until later in the year due to Covid 19. The work Luke is doing with Talk2MeBro is inspirational to say the least. This is an example of a young man with a massive heart and a dedication to contribution and making a difference in the world. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank You for Your Kind Words! 🖤🙏🏼
Right now I should be on a plane bound for Kathmandu. Well at least I thought I should have been... clearly the Universe has other things in mind... we were due to be heading to Bardia to serve to the best of our ability this community through a collaboration to empower them even more to know and believe that everything is truly possible... so I asked myself today... as I wholeheartedly believe that for each of us, anything is possible... what ELSE can I be doing towards this goal that can also take us one step closer. I choose to focus on what’s possible and spend more time on the solution rather than stating frozen at the problem. It requires a shift, it requires a new perspective, and it is a gift to get more resourceful.
What are you doing today to get yourself towards your objective, even if the path you thought was the one is currently not available to you?
