My story

[p]To mark my 70th birthday, I’m undertaking my first ever triathlon to raise money for Kids at School in Nepal (KASIN). Taking place on Sunday 19th April 2020, it involves a 400m swim, followed by a 22 km cycle ride finishing with a 5 km run! Why put myself through such an arduous experience? Simply because I have seen the value of educating children in one of the poorest countries of the world. Some kids walk 2 hours to school each day because they know from others that education will help to pull them and their families out of poverty. Sadly, government schools are hugely under-resourced with poorly trained and motivated teachers. KASIN was set up in 2003 and now supports a number of schools in remote areas of Nepal. For details of our work, including teacher training programmes, see www.kasin.org.uk. The UK based charity has no office, employs no staff, and the trustees claim no expenses, so every pound raised (less a very small foreign currency transfer charge) reaches the beneficiaries. We know our funding makes a real difference because, at their own cost, a number of trustees visit the projects every year - 2019 saw my 12th visit to Nepal![/p][p]Please give generously so KASIN can support the education of more children on whom Nepal’s future depends.
