Terry Symonds' B.C. Initiative supporting
10 SMD Students in Nepal
Fund Raising Event
May 4, 2013
was a great success! Thanks to all.
Terry Symonds, a retired teacher in Surrey, BC, wants to help 10 Shree Mangal Dvip (SMD) Boarding School students with their education.
The children board on the crowded SMD campus in Kathmandu, Nepal, and study in buildings on the compound. SEE PHOTOS.
They receive clothing, food, health care and excellent education, preparing them to benefit their communities and their country.
SMD students learn the Nepali academic curriculum, study in English, write the SLC (School Leaving Certificate) Exams, passing at the top of the whole country rankings, and often receive scholarships to study abroad.
Below are short biographies of the chosen students with photos from before they came to SMD and from this August, 2012.
Terry has set a goal of finding ongoing sponsorship to fund each student's schooling and living expenses.
