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 recent Quiz night in September we raised money for Classrooms in the Clouds and we aim to further support them through our forthcoming Christmas Fayre at Bishops’ School.
