Our three Partners are successfully providing food relief and welfare checks to all children which has been no easy feat. Where it has proven difficult to give food packages directly due to lockdown restriction or remote locations we have been providing financial assistance so families can purchase food locally.
Aside from providing food relief and welfare checks we are also looking at ways we can improve infrastructure and use this time to provide improvements to our buildings. Our Partner Cosan is using the current COVID 19 lockdown period to complete the construction of two additional classrooms and the provision of fresh paint for existing rooms of their school in Kathmandu. The school, supporting students from Kindergarten through to Grade 10, is adding extensions to the existing infrastructure to accommodate Grades 11 and 12 ready for the next academic year. The extensions will allow for a larger library to be accommodated, and an improved space for the existing Kindergarten class.
