Educate to Lead: Nepal
This project was chosen by the current International President for her 2015 -17 Fundraising Appeal. The aim is to make a difference to the lives of women and girls following the devastating earthquakes of 2015. The Appeal will focus on the theme of education and leadership – education being key to the economic empowerment of women.
Projects funded by the Appeal are varied and range from building schools to providing scholarships.
SI Chester have supported a local Charity – Classrooms in the Clouds – in applying for funding. We are delighted to report that they have been granted £32,780.00. This money will go towards:
An Intensive Teacher Training Programme
Sponsorship of two Peripatetic Female Support Workers
Teacher/Student Resources including Menstrual Hygiene Kits
At our Quiz night in September we raised money for Classrooms in the Clouds and we raised further funds at a Christmas Fayre at Bishops’ School in December 2017.
