ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO DIDI FOUNDATION INC.
What we're up to:
A group of 22 are heading to Nepal to volunteer for The Didi Foundation. The profits from this fundraiser will go towards their educational programs in Nepal. This will include learning programs for disadvantaged women in Nepal and those displaced by the 2015 earthquake. Also two highly disadvantaged schools for marginalised youth. One being a deaf boarding school with 90 students and another school which teaches the child labourers who go to work in the brickyards before and after school.
Here's who's coming: Annabel Biddulph, Cachelin Hall, Cameron Jones, Jo Bradley, Joe Miller, Kate Alderton, Laura Johnson, Melissa Monroe, Monica Li, Nina Cradick, Sam Medway, Sarah Davis, Sureesha Mosquera, Tess Roden, Veronica O'Mara, Bill Peterson, Will Cook, Rhiannon Harvey, Claire O'Mara, Gabby Wells and Yvette Mascarenhas
For the remainder of the year we are working to raise money for the foundation through a series of fundraisers and also through sponsorship.
