Funds for three student scholarships have been sent to Ambience School, bringing our scholarship total to six. Kuldip Aryal, on the School Management team, has asked us to ‘convey our heartfelt appreciation and heartfelt thanks for granting scholarships for these poor and needy children.’ In a few weeks a second ‘science day’ is planned, where students are encouraged to think about and develop a display or experiment using a scientific principle. When visiting the school early this year, we were present at the first day, where students had made models of their hopes for a green Kathmandu with clean air and water. We saw the universal delight of young students making a volcano with baking soda and vinegar. For this day we noticed that funds for supplies and simple equipment for the science projects were limited. As an addition to our sponsorship for individual students, we would like to add a ‘Special Education Activity Fund’. If you would like to contribute to this, please contact [email protected]
