Wish List  

It takes a lot to keep a project running. The school has 600 children and that requires hundreds of bars of soap and 100s of kilos of lentils and rice. The projects need diesel fuel for the generators and vehicles. There are 100s of wonderful support staff that teach and cook and clean and make clothes and look after all the administration and maintenance and security.  

Each month, funds are needed to keep operating.  We'd love your help for small items or large to keep the Himalayan kids healthy and educated.

Books from Amazon are the only things that get past Customs.
