ACS Egham Project Nepal and HANDS International Initiative

In 2016, Project Nepal partnered with Health and Nutrition in Developing Societies (HANDS)  International of Nepal to support the nutritional needs of the Jana Bhawana community. 

Three full-time Nepalese staff were hired to assess malnutrition and teach the local families how to compensate for them. 

Now, a school garden is in the works and health surveys continue. We have received a donation that will help us continue this partnership through March 2018.
In November 2016, Project Nepal received a donation that made it possible for us to purchase one solar lamp per student and two charging stations that will remain at the school in order to encourage attendance. 
Also in November 2016, additional fundraising allowed us to purchase 78 winterization kits for students and teachers. Kits contain winter clothing and blankets.
