Always fantastic to bring people to the school for the first time and watch their eyes light up with possibility. So awesome to have Luke Conners and Jenna McInerney here from Down Under to do an evaluation ready for their trip in April. Luke is bringing a group of awesome Aussie volunteers who are coming to support the expansion of our school.
Tradies of different skills sets coming over to work alongside the local builders, mentoring them as they go. We are so grateful for their decision and commitment to help. Jenna is a teacher and so will be coming to support the teachers and kids with her skill set too. It is so valuable for the teachers to have a different perspective and share what they do to inspire our teachers here to expand their horizons. We were met by a very wet winters day but when the rain gave us a break we joined the local Tharu community street festival celebrating the new year on their calendar. It’s going to be a busy few days... we are ready! ... See MoreSee Less
Connections made through contribution can last a lifetime. Maeve visited the school in April last year... I really didn’t think she was going to leave. Her continued connection to the students is a beautiful thing. Open minds open hearts and cross cultural exchange... makes the world a better place. ❤️🙏🏻 ... See MoreSee Less
As we explore Uganda we are also seeking ideas on education in rural areas and how some of their systems can be applied in Bardia. Some very simple ideas such as these posters as well as crops being grown in school yard so that kids can learn practical skills as well as standard educational skills. ... See MoreSee Less
As we move into 2020 our campaign will expand into mentorship and training. The Bardia community is hungry to grow, hungry to expand their skill set, and hungry to create a powerful future. You may have the skills that would help them. If you have skills you would like to share reach out and let us know. You could make all the difference.
In this image Andreas from Switzerland who has an entirely self-sufficient off the grid home, is working with a local builder to create rùbbish division areas in the school. There may not yet be recycling available however it is important to set up for success and put systems in place that the community can then grow into. Skill sharing is a powerful gift.
Each and every day that passes I am reminded of the power of education and the impact the work ALL of us do around the world can have for the future generations of developing counties. Please continue to support your organisation of choice so kids have a brighter future.
Thank you on their behalf.
