Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019

We are very excited to announce that Pahar Trust Nepal has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019. For one week, starting at 12pm on Tuesday 3rd December, all donations to our project via theBigGive.org.uk will be DOUBLED!

Between 3rd and 10th December 2019, Pahar TrustNepal (PTN) will be joining the Big Give, Christmas Campaign to raise funds to provide a new science lab at Shree Buddhodaya Secondary School, Gillung, Nepal. This school was badly damaged in the earthquake of 2015 and is currently undergoing refurbishment and retrofitting to make it safe for students for many years to come. The provision of a new science lab will enable those students to receive quality STEM education as well.

STEM education in Nepal is commonly taught ‘by rote’ with teachers reading facts from text books. Students have very little practical experience or experimentation to understand these concepts. By providing a new science lab with equipment, chemicals and resources we can provide the basis for improved science education within this school.

The cost of the new lab will be £8,000. However, as the Big Give Christmas Campaign will double your donations we only need £4,000 to be able to deliver this much needed project. This is a great opportunity to maximise the impact of your donation to Pahar Trust Nepal.

Below are example images from science labs that have been provided at Shree Himalaya Secondary School, Mauja and Shree Himalaya Secondary School, Singdi in 2018.

What happens during the Christmas Challenge?
Donations made to our project via theBigGive.org.uk will be doubled during the campaign. If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will be doubled and make even more of a difference to us.

Please note, the donate button will not be available until 12pm on Tuesday 3rd December.
