In 2021, we asked for special attention in our fundraising applications for Sabina, a promising pupil of the after-school program SHCOP. She could and would very much like to continue her studies, but her family was unable to finance it. Fortunately, we succeeded in raising sufficient funds and Sabina could do the extended school program Plus 2 Business Management. This year she will start studying for her bachelors degree.
After that, her younger sister Sachina took center stage in our fundraising applications. Both symbolize many more girls and boys whom we already help with a scholarship or whom we would very much like to help. The sisters have been regular visitors to the after-school-program we support for years. They are now mainly active there as very enthusiastic volunteers.
The girls came to the SHCOP because the village where they grew up was completely destroyed during the earthquakes of 2015. As if by a miracle, they, their mother and little brother survived. Unfortunately, their father did not. They fled to Kathmandu, where life was and is not easy for them. The family is poor and in Nepal there is no support for single parents.
Fortunately, there was room for the children at the after-school-program, where they received the necessary support (care, nutrition, attention, homework assistance). Partly because of this, Sabina was able to finish her high school education in a glorious way. Sachina follows suit this spring. This despite the extra challenges of corona, with online education and no internet at home.
Sabina and Sachina are both very smart girls who enjoy learning. They are therefore very happy to continue their studies. Not only for themselves, but especially to support their mother and brother and to improve all of their lives. Sabina will work towards the bachelor’s degree in computer applications and Sachina wants to become a nurse. When they finish studying, they will go to work and want to contribute to their brother’s further education and make their mother’s life a little easier. Pay it forward!
Wereldlichtjesdag: de dag om stil te staan bij hen die het leven hebben verlaten. Door corona en de oorlog in Oekraïne weten we tegenwoordig meer dan ooit hoe kwetsbaar het leven is. Stilstaan bij hen die vertrokken is dan belangrijker dan ooit. Hulp en steunen bieden aan zij die het echt nodig hebben is een mooie manier om anderen te gedenken. Onze kinderen in Nepal kunnen je steun goed gebruiken.
World Lights Day: the day to reflect on those who have left their lives. Because of corona and the war in Ukraine, we now know more than ever how vulnerable life is. Reflecting on those who have left is more important than ever. Help and support offering to those who really need it is a beautiful way to remember others. Our children in Nepal could really use your support.
The moment is approaching. The moment when the men of Orange enter the arena against Argentina for the quarterfinals of the World Cup. So, men of Orange let the lion roar, the Dutch scream with pleasure, Argentina cry and score, score, score. With every goal of yours, we can help even more young people in Nepal with a scholarship and with that give them better future prospects. That is the only method to stop/prevent exploitation, of which many Nepalese in Qatar have fallen victim to. So please, make the cash register ring for Nepal!
Het moment nadert. Het moment waarop de mannen van Oranje in het strijdperk treden tegen Argentinië voor de kwartfinale van het WK. Dus, mannen van Oranje laat de leeuw brullen, Nederlanders gillen van plezier, Argentinië huilen en scoor, scoor, scoor. Met iedere goal van jullie kunnen wij nog meer jonge mensen in Nepal aan een studiebeurs helpen en hen daarmee toekomstperspectief beiden. Dat is de enige methode om uitbuiting zoals waarvan veel Nepalezen in Qatar het slachtoffer zijn geworden te stoppen/voorkomen. Dus, laat de kassa rinkelen voor Nepal!
