2019 - our current fundraising effort is concentrating on relatively small amounts of around £3,600 for each school to provide a bank of 15 computers, since the new government in Nepal has added IT/Computer Science to the curriculum. We have been able to set up Likhu school with a computer suite, working with the community who connected the school to the internet.
Every penny counts - it is very easy to donate to YYY Foundation.
