Lyn Taylor has been taking groups trekking in Nepal for over 20 years, and six years ago helped to build this school which collapsed in the earthquakes.
Women Travel and many of you responded to her request for help to rebuild this school, she is delighted to share this news.
With great delight I am happy to advise that Saraswati Primary School Nepal has been rebuilt after the devastating Earthquake in April 2016. It took less than one year to raise the funds, and rebuild the school. Our second project at Ganga Jumina Primary School Fulkarka is now underway and will be completed by the end of June.
Although this is a great effort the people of Nepal are still struggling to survive more than1 year later. There are many more schools to be rebuilt and many families without homes, as a result have decided to leave the You Caring Fundraising link up on www.tayloradventure.com website, if you would like to further donate please go to this link.
