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.
