About the Campaign
There are moments in life where you find true reason, true happiness and true belonging, and mine was in 2014 when I was first able to help men, women and children in Nepal. I left Nepal knowing that my life had changed, that a new pathway lay ahead, though I wasn’t sure exactly what life had install. Then, only 4 short months later in 2015, catastrophic Earthquakes hit Nepal; destroying homes, schools, and ripping family members from loved ones. Some people lost everything but hope. I was absolutely devastated; I received personal pictures, videos, cries for help from the Nepali people I had connected with only 4 months previously. Though, at the time, I was immersed in full-time university, was volunteering for countless local organisations and initiatives, and was working a job to survive as well, I felt compelled to do something. This was when ‘The Help Nepal Appeal’ came to life.
The Power of 4 Months- 2016-2017
I dedicated myself to moving to and volunteering in Nepal, building up my team and charity, over a span of 4 months. I could never have anticipated how much I was able to achieve for THNA in that time. It made me realise that I need to be in Nepal personally, for extensive periods of time, to truly reach more people in need. In the 4 months I volunteered full-time in Nepal, The Help Nepal Appeal completely expanded, completely unravelled with what its true values are and the focus has become different to many of the other non-for-profits out there.
Hopes for the Future- 5 Months Transformation
As the document attached shows, in 4 months of my volunteering full-time in Nepal, the charity underwent an absolutely immense positive change. We were able to reach hundreds more needing help and establish sustainable and empowering ways to do so. Our support globally has immensely grown and our story of transparency and passion has transcended through even more online platforms. If I can be sponsored to return to Nepal for 5 months, the amount of progress, the amount of people who will be helped, and the amount of awareness that will be made, will be even vaster than the list in the document attached. If all that was listed could be achieved in 4 months, there is no doubt that in 5 months an incredibly powerful amount of growth will occur. I am ready to invest myself fully into THNA, and I can only hope that others will feel empowered enough to join our journey by investing in me.
