This is a joint project by Kasin, Green Tara Nepal and Tamang Kharka School. Kasin will be funding the salary and Green Tara are providing her training. Rotary Clubs of Skipton and Settle are also contributing with a District grant to help set up the project.

Their concer was home learning and homework issues. Most of them never been school and hardly can help on the needs of kids academic part. They know most of their kids do brilliant jobs on the earlier school days but after years, they become weaker at the classroom and at end they stop going their school! They knew why and that is how they arrived to KASIN!The smart leaders of KASIN immediately said ‘Yes’ and now it is there, class just started!An honest,hardworking, brilliant guy (first one from that community, doing masters in education, administration head at a highly reputed pre-school called Tinyseeds, in Kathmandu) Raju BK was chosen as team leader and all job were done while the entire world was lockdown at their own home!Thank you


Reports received from the schools in our sponsorship program

We have had 2 detailed reports one from Deonia school and the other from Moran School not far away in Maheshpur. We sponsor 51 students at Maheshpur ( mainly the children of the tea plantation workers ) and a further 33 at Deonia. The amount of sponsorship the children get is dependent on their family situation . 
This has been a a very effective project for KASIN and the sponsorship has made a huge difference to the lives of these children. 

Water Supply and new sanitary block at Tamang Kharka is now finished

Stage 1 of the 5 year plan for Tamang Kharka is now complete after 3 months work . The improvements were much needed as there was little water available for washing and flushing the toilets and a complete lack of safe drinking water. Many thanks to Kadoori for enabling this. Even more important to have washing facilities available during the Covid outbreak.
