raised so far! 🙏
Starting from next year, the Heaven Hill Academy will offer the 7th grade for the first time. The Heaven Hill Academy is currently teaching nursery until middle school classes grades 1-6. The oldest students will enter the 7th grade in the next school year. Therefore, our school needs to expand and build additional classrooms.
By sourcing raw materials locally and hiring local workers, we empower the community’s economy — this is especially important after COVID. For the curious ones among you, we provide you our detailed financing plan by clicking the button below.
If we reach our second funding goal of a total of 25.000€, we will buy land attached to our school. This land will be used as a playground for the kids — and potentially for additional classroom buildings.
We are launching this Christmas fundraiser from the 20th of November until the 6th of January to raise the needed financing for the construction.
Construction planning has already started. Beginning in January 2021, our partner and local workers will start building the new classrooms.
In March 2021, the 7th graders to-be will start their new school year in their new classrooms at the Heaven Hill Academy.
We build schools for 264 million children who don’t go to school. Our approach is to partner with local visionaries who want to lead change in their communities. We support them with financial support for building and running their schools to create a positive impact on the long-run.
15% of the Nepalese population lives in extreme poverty. Of course, there are many different reasons, but one of the most pressing ones is the low literacy rate of only 57%. Even though eight schooling years are mandatory, only less than two-thirds of the Nepalese children finish lower secondary schools. (Sources: World Bank, 2020 and CIA Factbook, 2016)
