Your Donations Built This School InNandagaun, Nepal

With your help, we've built hope for students in Nandagaun, Nepal

Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid have partnered with buildOn to fund and build schools in rural communities in developing countries. In August 2019, buildOn completed a new school in the village of Nandagaun, Nepal funded by your donations. 25% of the Nepalese population live below the poverty line and 50% are illiterate. The students of Nandagaun previously learned in six temporary classrooms with nine teachers teaching eight grade levels. The new school will provide the children of Nandagaun with a safe, spacious learning environment and they will no longer have to walk 3 km to get to the next nearest proper school building.

Anusha Chaudhary is 7 years old and in the 3rd grade. Her favorite subject is Nepali and she wants to be a police officer when she grows up. Neither of Anusha's parents had the opportunity to attend school. Through the donations we've collected at our Charity Fill-A-Bag Sales, you've helped break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and expectations for students like Anusha. The students of Nandagaun thank you for your donations!
