Yapton Free Church has been involved in Nepal since 2000, when our Pastor, Hugo, first met with a man from Nepal. Over the years, the Nepal Project has evolved and expanded as we have been able to make a difference in Nepal.
Our current projects include working with Schools, providing them with the equipment and resources such as whiteboards, school uniforms, new class rooms and more. We have been involved in 16 different schools across Nepal. You can read more about our schools work on our Schools page.
Another of our focuses has been 'Earthquake Relief'. After the earthquake in 2015 (read more below), Nepal suffered great amounts of damage. We have been able to help make an impact, short term by providing food straight after the disaster and long-term by helping to rebuild houses and provide a 24 hr drinking water supply to those in a very remote area of Nepal that was devastated by the earthquake.
Supporting schools has been a big aspect of the Nepal Project since the early days. We have now supported 16 schools. It is so encouraging to see how the work is growing and indiviual children's lives are being changed every day. Access to education gives these children choices and hope for their future which they may otherwise not have had.
Here are just some of the ways in which the Nepal Project has supported schools:
Children from the Mountain School
There are many different people who are involved in regularly supporting the Nepal Project, including:
Over the years we have held many fundraisers from sponsored walks, to bike rides and a Kyatholon that consisted of Kayaking, bike riding and walking. In previous years we have also been very grateful to Gaston Farm who have helped us raise thousands of pounds for Nepal and other charities. In 2018 we will be continuing to find new ways of fundraising.
We are always looking for more sponsors and gratefully receive any donation towards schools and other projects that we support in Nepal. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you wish to give or get involved with the Nepal Project.
