Delivering Hope for the Future

Children are able to attend school for the first time, receive food parcels and health kits, and parents are receiving health care and vocational training to develop a better future for their families. For around $5,000 investment, a small community in Nepal is receiving a brighter future.

Rotary International Projects

The community of Tamang and Danuwar are the most backward communities by education and economy in Kavre district. The village is located in Kavre a district of Nepal with 125 households having 758 population, among them 500 are children of 6 month to 16 years of age.

The Rotary Club of Dhulikhel is working with ethnic communities in Chamkhar and Baluwa village where Tamang and Danuwar communities are living. Rotary has been working with the Community Development & Relief Agency Nepal since 2010 to provide education to the Tamang and Danuwar children by providing basic education support and strengthening local schools like Chamkher Village School near Kavre.

Since the communities are very poor, they hardly earn just $1 a day – which is not enough to feed their families, and the children suffer and are bound to be child labour. (see film in our website: www.rotarydhulikhel.org.np  ). The RC of Dhulikhel Nepal and RC of Tea Tree Gully are helping 15 children’s education and nourishment for 12 months, which is the first phase. Tea Tree Gully has contributed $3,750US toward the first part of the Community need. The next stage of the project created a vocational training environment for parents to learn and find a way to give them opportunities so these parents could learn a skill and start a micro business for generating more income to support their family’s basic needs.

Due to limited nutritious food many children are malnourish and most of them have low vision. The project has also provided eye screening in the local primary school. In the villages data gathering found that adults of 40-70 age people have problems in their eyes, and the project has also provided eye screening camps in the villages to test the eyes of children and adults.

Tea Tree Gully has committed to a long term relationship and friendship with the Rotary Club of Dhulikhel Nepal in helping them achieve humanity projects and support the communities of Tamang and Danuwar Villages.

One of the key objectives of the project was to sponsor deprived community children for the regular attending to school by providing uniform, books, stationeries, school bag, food, play games and test eyes.
