There are times...like now... when things don’t look like you thought they would... Covid has mixed things up for sure...I was reminded today by Tony Robbins that we need to step up in the moments that it’s not easy and take charge of what the future looks like. Our life is based on the story we tell ourselves time and time again. I remind myself daily why I started this journey with the community of Bardia and I remind myself daily of why we will never stop. Our commitment to supporting these kids to a more empowered and inspired future doesn’t stop because the going got tough..
the secret to living is giving and we plan to live big!! Thank you for your continued support for what we do.
If you haven’t read why we chose this community you may just like to take a look at our video.
Feel free to message us if you want to know how you too can be a part of our mission. ... See MoreSee Less

🙏🏻 I got a beautiful message from Asmita, one of the year 10 students at our school in Bardia a couple of days ago.
She was excited to share with me that the students now have access to teaching albeit that they are still in FULL lockdown across Nepal. The kids should have started their new school year towards mid April.
🎧 Now the local Municipality is transmitting lessons over the radio for the students. They alternate days based on the classes they are in.
💪🏻💪🏻👩🏽🎓👨🏽🎓We are so proud of the kids who continue to commit to their learnings by showing up to listen to classes over the radio. It also shows a commitment by the Municipality to continue to provide opportunities for the kids to study.
Nepal has worked really hard over the past 10 years to increase literacy and support all students to get a full education.
We are committed to our project within the Bardia community. It will be more important than ever to ensure quality education for these youngsters moving forward.

Being quite involved in Bardia and encouraging a number of the 10-12 grade students to learn computing, we cannot but admire the enthusiasm of each and every child in wanting to better themselves. What is even more encouraging are the girls, who 10 years ago would be looking to marry and settle. Now they are outdoing the boys. It would be helpful if the government would provide inexpensive computers to their schools in order for them to take a step further.
Hi Asmita👋🏼 So nice to hear you are safe and well and continuing to enjoy your studies!
I love the dedication of these kids who realise that education is their pathway to a better future.

🏃♀️🏃♂️ 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.
