Nepal Secondary School Project
The Rotary Club of Kirriemuir is undertaking a major project to raise funds to help rebuild classrooms of a Secondary School in Nepal. This school was badly affected by the earthquakes sustained in May 2015. The club has linked directly with the Rotary Club of Himalayan Gurkhas who will monitor the work and pay the bills as they arise. We will be helping to finance the rebuilding the rooms, repairing those damaged, providing equipment for the staff and children and providing sanitary and drinking water facilities for boys and girls.
This club has been successful in getting other local Rotary Clubs involved and obtaining a grant from Rotary International, based in America, as this is an international project recognised by the world community. Our target is to raise £25,000. We are well on our way and will be continuing to raise funds over this year.
The President of the Himalayan Gurkhas, Siri P. Gurung, is travelling to see family in London and we have invited him to come to Kirriemuir to a public meeting. We are inviting up to 6 people from your organisation/school/group/business to this open evening on Tuesday 2nd August in the Old Parish Church in Kirriemuir at 7.30 pm.
Siri, and a colleague, will be giving a presentation on the project and will answer questions. We would very much like your organisation to be represented and see for yourself the work that Rotary does changing the lives of people throughout the world. To think that Kirriemuir can make such a difference and help so many children and families is fantastic.
This is an open meeting as it should be fascinating and informative to hear about this part of the world and the problems they have which hopefully we will never experience. We need an indication of how many will be coming.
