Kids at school in Nepal
"A small charity with big ambition. Seeing first hand the enthusiasm of kids in Nepal to learn and develop, convinced two cyclists that they wanted to do more than give pens and sweets to these children. In partnership with Nepali friends they founded www.kidsatschoolnepal.co.uk A charity set up to improve education for children in Phulkharka, a rural and deprived area of Nepal."

Camino for Kids at School in Nepal

Thank you for visiting our page. The Santiago Trail or Camino de Santiago (French route) is a 500 mile walk from southern France across the Pyrenees and west across Spain. This seemed a fitting challenge to raise funds for KASIN to support education in Nepal after the earthquake. For full details of our chosen journey please visit our blog.

In 2013 we spent three weeks in Nepal trekking to Kala Patthar over 5,600m. During that time we had the good fortune to meet a wonderful group of people whose job it was to make sure we achieved our goal safely. These were the Sherpas we’ve heard so much about in recent weeks some of whom, along with thousands of other Nepalese people, have lost their lives after the recent earthquake. During our trek we passed through many villages and were always welcomed by everyone we met. These are such a warm and friendly people who have so much to contend with just living in such a harsh environment without such tragedies as earthquakes hitting them. This is our chance to help in some small way to rebuild their lives.

Whilst we were in Nepal we met the chairman of the KASIN charity whose remit is to improve education in the Kathmandu valley. KASIN is a small charity but almost every penny they raise goes directly to Nepal to help improve education. Needless to say, after the earthquake many of the school buildings are either damaged or completely destroyed so your donation is needed more than ever to rebuild and repair the schools so their education can continue.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to KASIN. Virgin Money Giving is a ‘not for profit’ organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations you make.
