We are delighted to support the ‘magic read’ programme for MHN. Education is the way forward. Having been part of a medical camp with MHN last November, I saw first hand how treasured these books are by the children. Their very own book....to take home! Informative, educational and fun.Mountain Heart Nepal continued its magic read project at Ghale Gau, Lamjung with support from CHANCE for Nepal. Through distribution of secondary textbooks in hand in places where there is no school library, we aim to facilitate daily individual study, increase awareness of health and hygiene, and empower the participation of children in caring for themselves and others.

We want to thank CHANCE for Nepal for sharing the experience of learning and enriching lives of children through magic read. The books distribution occurred at two schools of Lamjung during our free health camp held on 16 May and 17 May 2019.

Such a lovely way to teach the lower and upper kindergarten about the importance of fruit in their diet. What a treat for these children who probably see very little fruit in their diet to be able to sample all the different fruits. Hats off to Triple Gem, a school CHANCE has supported in many ways for over 15 years and continue to do so. Our support extends to a cup of milk every day to the junior school as well as six students receiving educational sponsorship by English sponsors.#Happy_fruits_day🍎🍓🍅🍒🍉🍋🍌🍍🍊🍇#part_I

Her father had boiled water and left it in a vessel on the floor to cool. Sonu came rushing into the house and slipped and fell and her arm went into the hot water.  Her father quickly applied coconut oil, ice and aloe-vera and rushed her to a nearby chemist for first aid treatment. Later she was transferred to the burn’s unit at the Kanti Children’s Hospital.  She has now been discharged home. (It is important to run cool running water over all burns. Never apply ice or oils.)Arban is 5 months old and comes from Humla, which lies 415 kms from Kathmandu. He suffered 20% , second degree burns to his legs and tummy. His mother had finished cooking on the open fire and forgot to extinguish the fire.

Chance for Nepal

Rosy and Peter Gent who funded this school through CHANCE for NEPAL don't do Facebook, but I wanted to publicly thank them both so much for their generosity and thought this would be a good place to do so.

I am so happy about this new school which GMIN (Grassroot Movement in Nepal) have built, their 42nd school which is on the site of the existing school called the Shree Siddheswori Secondhary high School, located in Sanney village, Vidhyapur, in the Surkhet District. The main school is two hours walk from the closest motorable road. Sangbo Lobsang of GMIN sent me further photos today which I wanted to share with everyone who supports CHANCE.

The school which was damaged in the 2015 earthquake now has this new wing which will be called the Annapurna Wing, a name chosen by Peter and Rosy who in 1996 trekked the Annapurna circuit. They choose the name Annapurna, as for them it signified their greatest achievement in physical effort. Rosy said "One cannot help but absorb something of the spiritual heart of Nepal. We will always remember the warmth and friendliness of the Nepali people. Funding the school we hope to express our gratitude for the amazing experience we had." You have certainly done that Peter and Rosy!

I know how they feel. Every time I go to Nepal, 2019 being my 18th year, I leave part of my soul behind. It is a country that grabs my heart in every which way.

Chance for Nepal

Great to see the children receiving and enjoying the books. A big thank you to Jane Lewis, a generous supporter of CHANCE who funded the books for this relief medical mission and other magic read distributions throughout 2019.
Having myself been on a medical mission with this brilliant organisation and seen first hand the joy these books bring to the children I am delighted to support MHN.Distributing colorful secondary books to children is key to Mountain Heart Nepal's magic read project. It is a strategic project aimed to make reading accessible and promote health in the rural community. This time we distributed the books to the children affected by the storm and residing in Sukchaina-18 and Jagannathpur-22, Parsa on 4 May 2019. The school drop out rates tends to be higher in areas with high illiteracy and particularly after such incidents. Now because of the books children are excited to join their classes.

We are able to distribute books in our outreach clinic with help from CHANCE for Nepal (UK). Thank you for motivating and inspiring students.
