Autumn is here again, and throughout the Summer the students at the new Care Himalayan Region School have been settling in and getting used to their new home mothers and teachers. You can see that they have planted a field full of rice which they are very excited to harvest in the next few weeks, as well as apples in the playground. There is still a tonne of work to be done to make the school a more fun and exciting place to be and to ensure the wellbeing of the children in their learning environment. FtL volunteers will be visiting from the end of November to work in the school and help raise funds for new play equipment. If you want to donate towards their new slide, climbing frame and swings please do so using the links on the website. All those pennies will make a BIG difference some little people!

Their work is voluntary and they work many hours supporting young people in their primary education, helping with emotional needs as well with extra tuition, improved teacher, parent and employer communications and equipment requirements.
