Moving Mountain School Bag has now received the crowd funding donations. Thank you to everyone who contributed. Here is where we are at the moment.
Nepal is currently experiencing problems getting essential fuel and supplies through from India. The reasons for this are directly related to Nepal’s new constitution which came into law in September.
No one knows how long the blockade will continue, but we are hopeful that this will resolve peacefully and soon. This has had a devastating effect on the economy already struggling to get back on it feet after the earthquakes. It has also impacted Moving Mountain School Bag’s efforts to reach schools.
Consequently we have decided to wait until early December to continue the work and will keep our supporters up to date with developments. In the mean time Moving Mountain School Bag is contacting schools in the district of Sindupalchok.
Several initiatives have sprung up in these last months which echo the work we are doing and this means that many school children have received school bags and essential learning materials from other sources. This is inspiring to see happening!
Our aim now is to provide as many schools that are still in need of bags before Christmas, providing the economic blockade is resolved and vehicles can be on the road again.
