What an amazing movie it was! Thank you so much for turning up and supporting our projects in Nepal. We raised just under $1000 and that is a great achievement.
Rebuilding school in Ladap
Friends of Nepal – Australia Inc. has been able to fund $333 for a replacement of a stretcher and bed for the Tawal health centre and also fund $5000 towards the rebuild of a classroom in Ladap. This project is managed by Nepal Australia Friendship Association Qld Incorporated (NAFA).
Rebuilding school in Dharan – Update
Dharan is located in the east of Nepal with a mixed population, including migrants from nearby villages and hillside. With the increase in population so did the slums, leading to issues in providing better education and employment in the slums.
Fundraising lunch with Dr Alex Zahnd
We have been contributing towards RIDS-Nepal’s “Family of Four” and “Family of Four Plus” programmes in Humla and Jumla region. This works on providing basic-necessities such as toilets, electricity, clean drinking water, and smokeless stoves.
Special thanks to Dr. Hilary Wallace for being our Speaker for the night and shedding some light on the importance of Play Therapy for special children in Nepal.
Every Little Bit Helps
After Nepal was struck by the terrible earthquake in April 2015, some friends and I gathered together at my house for an afternoon tea. We all provided a plate to share and made donations for Friends of Nepal.
Play Therapy Workshop held in Kathmandu
In February 2016 the first child-centred play therapy training course was held in Nepal. People who remember “Dibs in Search of Self” by Virginia Axline will understand the power of play therapy to transform the lives of children who have been traumatized.
Training for flood affected families
Friends of Nepal – Australia Inc was able to extend a small helping hand to the flood affected families in Guptipur village under Birendranagar Municipality. Our small help of AUD1000 has a gone a long way in making the community stand up again.
Everest: Movie Event
We were able to raise just over $650 from the event. This might seem not much but it is enough to provide SMS to five families.
Spring Festival 2015
We organised a multicultural themed event – Spring Festival on the 5th September. The event was supported by Fremantle Multicultural Centre, Helping Minds (formally ARAFMI) and City of Cockburn.
