India Link Mufti Day - Pioneer Foundation, Nepal

As you may be aware, Bradon Forest India link has been working with schools in Northern India for several years. The work began through the British Council Connecting Classrooms initiative. One of the most important values held by the schools is ‘Others before self’. In light of this, and as part of our developing International charity work, funds from the Mufti Day on 16th October will go towards the rebuilding of a school in Nepal, destroyed during their recent earthquake. The funds will go directly to the Pioneer Foundation, a Nepalese charity, to rebuild a Himalayan village school - The Shree Rameshwary Secondary school. We are delighted that the student council are supporting this charity as we can make real a difference to lives of children who have faced such difficult times.

During the week of 12th October, India Link students will lead assemblies on the themes of ‘The Golden Rule’ and ‘Others before self’. We are lucky enough to have with us a guest speaker, Sharna King, who was in Nepal at the time of the earthquake and is working closely with the Pioneer Foundation. This will hopefully give students and opportunity to reflect on the differences they can make to the lives of others.

Update: We raised a total of £850!

The students of The Shree Rameshwary school are keen to continue with their studies, despite the wreckage.

You can see some extent of the damage in the buildings behind.
