Learning for Life is a charity dedicated to helping the
people of Gorkha, Nepal, bring
education and health to their children.
It has done this by
raising money to build and run a school in Pokharatok a village in Gorkha. We run a sponsorship
scheme: pupils £15 per year - providing them with
uniform, bags, books and tiffin (lunch). We also have
syndicates that sponsor staff wages, and run a monthly
clinic. We now support over 250 children to have an
education, we run daily literacy classes for parents and
provide ten members of staff - as well as a water tap,
We need volunteers willing to teach at the school.
There are now seven classes ranging from our
nursery class to Year 5. The nursery class is
well resourced and our staff enjoy
working in a practical way. We have equipped many
nurseries in the area, complete with lino, painting and
resources. If you would like to volunteer we would love to hear from you.
You can sponsor a
teacher, or a child, either as an individual, or as
part of a syndicate.
You can support us by attending one of our
fund-raisers, or by running an event of your own.
You can make a
donation via the Charities Aid Foundation
