• Blake Foundation delivers education in Nepal

        • At the end of last year, Blake partnered with the School in a Bag charity on a mission to deliver 149 SchoolBags to children at the Shree Ganesh Basic School, which is located in a remote village in Nepal.

          Getting the learning equipment delivered to the Nepali children involved a host of challenges, from sourcing persons within the country to assemble the bags, to encountering rockslides so vast they completely blocked the route to the village.

          Tim Browning, Creative Director said, “I am so pleased that Blake has been able to be involved in another distribution of school bags, this time in Nepal.  We know from past experience that this will have a profound effect on the education and hopes of these young people. We are glad once again our ‘Giving Hope Through Education’ program is really making a difference.”

          On 7th November, Blake succeeded in getting the bags it had provided to their new owners at the Shree Ganesh School. Ranging from ages 2 to 17, there are 127 attendees at the school, which has the only female headteacher in the whole of the Paanch Pokhari region. The village has a population of approximately 500 people and is inhabited mostly by the Gurung community, which is one of the ethnic minorities in Nepal. 

          One of the main reasons the company chose to support these children, is that the school is situated within the Helambu region which is, even now, struggling to rebuild itself after the catastrophic earthquake they suffered in 2015. Government provision for education here is very scarce, so Blake was assured that their donations would be greatly appreciated.

          Nirmala Dhital, Head Teacher of the school said, “thank you so much for donating to HELP Nepal. Today I got to see the donation of the bags to the kids and the kids were really happy. They got books and pencils and colours. I’ve honestly never seen the kids this happy before. For me also personally as the teacher, it’s really nice to see my kids excited to come to school and makes them excited to come and learn, so thank you very much for donating to HELP Nepal. It’s been so nice to see it in action and to see also how it will benefit the kids.”

          The team at Blake feel privileged to be able to do their bit to help these children, providing them with everything they need to receive a good education and further their lives in the future.
