Our friends around the world put huge amounts of effort and creativity into fundraising for Aishworya. Here are some of their stories.
In November 2018 Pete Lewis is asking friends and family to sponsor him to eat nothing but dal bhat – that’s rice and lentils – just like the children here at Aishworya, to raise money for the older children’s education.
Thanks to American volunteers Capucine, Iris, Stanford University’s Professor Kim and his assistant Wilson, our children are enhancing their education with the use of smart devices and Stanford University’s SMILE app.
Capucine has also set up a sponsorship programme. Supporters can sponsor a child by covering the annual cost of care and schooling.
Natalie runs social media campaigns to raise money for healthcare, and gets her friends and family involved with Aishworya.
While volunteering with us, Steph organised a fundraising evening of music and dance in a Kathmandu cafe.
Iris and her friends ran a series of fundraising events in their hometown, including selling home-baked cookies and running themed children’s parties.
Pete used social media to raise money before he came to visit. With support from friends and colleagues, he was able to buy us a juicer and a year’s worth of fruit and vegetables.
Helen has known us for a long time. She comes back to see us every year and brings groups of trekkers to visit Aishworya for themselves.
As well as donating, Mark displays Aishworya on his online fundraising platform – encouraging others to learn about us and donate.
Danielle’s non-profit organisation supports Aishworya by paying for school fees, shoes, socks, and rice.
