HELP HELP

Due to the devastation caused by the April 25th earthquake three of the schools in Ashrang have been destroyed. Many people are now homeless and children living under tarpaulin. The immediate problem is to raise funds to buy tarpaulin, blankets, sleeping bags and food. 

We are urgently trying to raise £25000 to help with the immediate future of the children. We intend to extend the school at Ashrang 5 so all the children can be educated but also to proved shelter for many many families. The school was designed and built to Western standards, the first of its kind in the Gorkha district. It was always planned to have the capability of being extended by adding a second storey. If funding was available this could be done very quickly.

Please remember Nepal is one of the poorest countries of the world. That is not through war, conflict or greed but purely because of a lack of resources. The only real domestic product is tourism and water. They are second o my to Brazil in the amount of running water, yes they know how to harness that but of course cannot fund hydro electric projects. Nepal envelops all cultures, all beliefs, it is a peaceful country and people are not at all jealous of the West. They all would like to have what we have in Europe but accept their lot and are happy about it.

This earthquake along with last years landslides, avalanches has hit hard and it will take Nepal many years to recover. CENUK although a very small charity can at least try to help some. We chose Ashrang because of its links to Britain and Europe, it is now time we gave something back.

Please help by donating as much as you can. I promise every penny will go to the area where it is most needed and absolutely no administration fees will be paid.

History

September 2006
During September 2006, two of the CENUK trustees visited Nepal and were introduced to Mr Sagar Pandey, Chairman of Child Environment Nepal (CEN), Kathmandu. CEN is a registered Nepalese Charity (1122259) and is a non-government, non-profit organisation (NGO). After many hours of discussions and visiting the children of CEN, the trustees asked how they could possibly help the children of CEN and in particular, support their education. A promise was made that during 2007, the trustees would return, accompanied by friends and colleagues to explore the needs of the children of Ashrang Village, Ghorka in addition to re-visiting the children of CEN.
May 2007
Twelve interested volunteers travelled to Kathmandu on the 3rd May 2007 for a nine day visit. After experiencing the culture and religious diversity of Kathmandu and visiting the children of CEN, they embarked upon a long and arduous trip to the village of Ashrang, some two and a half hours off road from the nearby town of Ghorka, ancestral home of the British Army Ghurkas. The visit started with a welcome by over a thousand villagers and schoolchildren. The mission culminated in an undertaking by the team to try and establish a UK charity to provide direct help to CEN.
October 2007
A further visit to Nepal was undertaken to reassure the school governors and villagers of Ashrang that the UK charity was being established and future help was planned. The small team also saw at first hand the progress made already by witnessing the complete renovation of one classroom and saw the local builders working hard making new classroom benches and tables. This was made possible by donations from raffles held prior to this visit.

Projects
During the visit in May 2007 and a subsequent visit on October 2007 a five year action plan was implemented.
