One in three people in Nepal live in poverty. Sailung also has a lot of poverty. Of a quarter of the children of the school, the parents do not have sufficient means to pay the school allowance. But because the school is known for good education in a short time, it is chosen over a government school which is free. This does have a negative impact on the financial independence of the school. By sponsoring a child you immediately sponsor the independence of the school.
The children also receive a pack of school clothes. Four polos and 2 school uniforms. Green for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday; Purple for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Saturday is Sunday in Nepal.
Furthermore, the children receive all the necessary teaching materials of which they are also very proud.
The special thing is that most of the parents in Sailung and the surrounding area have had no training and can hardly read or write. Let alone something in English.
Our objective was and is that every child from Sailung, poor or rich, high or low castes, should or should not be able to receive good religious education. Even though families are unable to pay a school fee. The children of those families are still very welcome and the school allowance is now reimbursed by the Foundation. It would be nice if you want to take on the support of a student. This is possible from € 25 per month through a gift agreement. You can discuss tax benefits when donating to the ANBI foundation here read more.

We like to do this through a 5 year long Donation agreement, you can then deduct the donation directly in the income tax return. You will be informed annually about the progress of the sponsored student. In addition, you will receive a present from Nepal and a drawing of the child you sponsored.
