Our latest pre-school update
Could you be one of our 40FRIENDS?
Here is a wonderful opportunity for you to join us in making a massive difference to lots of young lives.
Lincs2Nepal is currently in the process of taking over the funding and running of the Humanitarian Concern Center (HCC) children’s home in Kathmandu. The home has lost sponsors during the pandemic. The family who established and ran it for many years has also suffered, with the mother and father who founded the home both contracting cancer. The father unfortunately passed away recently and the mother is still receiving treatment.
We need to ensure the home’s future is both stable and sustainable, while also improving the very basic living conditions for the 19 children and two staff. We have therefore decided to set up a collective to ensure the home’s future.
The home will be renamed “The 40FRIENDS HCC” and we are looking for 40 businesses, families or organisations to each donate just £40 a month (£1.33 per day). This will allow the home to not only continue, but also to improve and grow. As one of our 40FRIENDS, you will receive regular updates on progress, both in words and photos. You will also have opportunities to visit the home, if you decide to join us on one of our twice-yearly trips to Nepal. There are also separate opportunities to sponsor the education of one of the children for just £20 per month. All of the children are in school or college and doing really well.

Garry's latest update from Jeevan Jyoti School
Charity does not end at Jeevan Jyoti School with our lincs2nepal scholarships, charity is happening all day, every day. Just this year, we have fed and looked after thousands of people during Covid and provided much needed aid for hundreds of people affected by the flooding.
To keep JJS running as well as it does and looking spotless takes an army of people. Our school principal, Jomon, has rescued 15 families from homelessness and domestic abuse and these families now live in accommodation next to the school, built by JJS. They receive shelter, food, jobs, a wage, respect and most importantly, the best education for their children that Nepal can offer. All of their children are on lincs2nepal scholarships.
The parents cook at the school. We currently have 1362 children. Most of them receive a hot lunch and, at present, our older classes are in school from 7am to 7pm as they catch up on missed education through Covid, so breakfast and dinner are also provided.
They also clean the school and look after the farm animals. They have been taught building, welding and fabrication and now construct our new building projects and make all of our desks and tables. All of this is done with a smile on their faces, as you can imagine. JJS never stops giving, it is truly incredible.
