The children at Gamauli school range in age from 7-12 years of age. They have received one donation of a few items that can be utilized on their playground, but with increased enrollment at the school they could use more. Another great option for the students would be educational games that teachers could use in the classroom. These games might focus on topics such as improving environmental awareness, social understanding, improving health/hygiene, water sanitation, geography, etc.
Students at the school do not have access to a library. Teachers are provided with "Teacher's Guides" and students are provided with text books, but they have very limited access to other types of fun reading materials and reference books. Ideally these books will be written in Nepali, but other books appropriate for students in grades 1-5 (ages 7-12) would be welcome. Room to Read has provided a donation already and some additional resources were provided by a volunteer a few years ago. Other than this, no other donations have been received to date.

The women are ready to knit...
The first orders are in...
But unfortunately we lack the funds to start a professional business from the knitting project for the women in Yoshinkhel: we cannot even meet orders if they come in because the women would need to knit ahead of time but lack the money to buy the wool they need!
Who has any ideas where to find seed capital? Who can help?
It seems some neighbours are facing problems sending goods to Yoshinkhel. Do you have any experience in this? Or ideas how to overcome these problems?
Sabina mentioned the safest way is if someone is coming to Yoshinkhel in person to give it to them to bring along. How do we look for people going to Nepal?
Or maybe airlines might take donations along?
Transportation problems might also have to be overcome in case a customer wants to send back a product!
All ideas are welcome!
Along with the local representative, please help to outline tasks for the Neighbours to work on.
