Warm greetings to you from Nepal and the GLOW family,
We all are doing well and pray that you are also in good health. The COVID19 pandemic lockdown has caused a lot of problems in our country. The lockdown has left many without jobs and made daily living and even survival for many difficult. We are near the beginning of the school calendar here in Nepal. The financial situation of the families of the children we had been supporting with school supplies and educational materials is even worse due to the lockdown. Due to that the children are in greater need of the school supplies and stationery support than ever. We are planning to distribute educational materials and school supplies to 80 to 100 students varying from grade one to twelve.
The parents of the students receiving the supplies work as daily laborers either on construction sites or in other types of manual work. Most of them have been out of work since the Covid19 lockdown started. Your support will allow students to continue their studies despite their families financial situation. Here is a story about one of our supported students:
I am studying in grade seven. Here is a picture of me receiving supplies last year from GLOW. I have gotten school support from GLOW for several years. My parents work in construction as daily laborers. Their income is barely enough for us to survive, let alone sending us to school. This annual package of school supplies support has helped me continue and perform well at school. Thank you for all your help to me and the other students. We want to make a difference in our country.
The cost breakdown for the students we want to help is as follows:
- Students in junior school: $50/student Total of 50 students: $2500
- Students in middle school: $80/student Total of 30 students: $2400
- Students in high school: $100/student Total of 20 students: $2000
We urge you to partner with us in providing this much needed material support. Here is a picture of our team presenting school supplies.
With love in Christ,
The Glow Staff
