About the Campaign
‘Save a Child’ Sponsorship Program
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” (Nelson Mandela).
As our team believes that every child deserves a quality education, we have a passion for supporting students of low-socioeconomic status; students who are undergoing immense struggles financially still deserve the right to gain a life-changing education. Therefore, we started our ‘Save a Child’ Sponsorship Program.
Tuition fees vary per region and per school, depending on if it is Private or Public. Tuition fees in rural areas of Nepal cost as little as 10 AUD per year but can be more expensive in more urban areas. A school uniform cost as little as 5 AUD. Tuition fees vary immensely per region and The Help Nepal Appeal wants to help out the children who need it the most.
The main goal of this campaign is to raise at least 500 AUD, so we can pay the tuition fees for 50 children in rural areas of Nepal. Please help us to send 50 children back to school, every child deserves an education!
“Education is a powerful force; it’s through education that we shape the leaders of tomorrow, overcome poverty, inequality and hardship, and begin to create a better future.” (Jody Dontje, 2016, THNA Founder).
Background information about The Help Nepal Appeal
On the 25th of April 2015, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that ripped from the epicenter 48 miles (77 km) Northwest of Kathmandu right throughout Nepal followed by two large aftershocks that killed over 9000 people destroying villages and leaving thousands without homes.
Founder Jody Lee Dontje set her life mission after that day to give back and help the Nepali people get there lives back together so that they can become independent again with needing our help. This is when TNHA was born.
“The Help Nepal Appeal” is a social platform that brings people from around the world together, to allow individuals and organisations locally and globally to reach remote parts of Nepal. We empower national citizens and volunteers from Nepal as well as international volunteers from around the globe.
Relying mainly on social media, our non-for-profit social initiative shines light onto the power of human connection and story sharing.
Our greatest passion is empowerment, we seek to empower communities, families and individuals so that they become independent and not depend on our help. We allow men, women and children to prosper and flourish, to create more sustainable ways of helping.
