We are a tiny charity based in North Wales. There are six of us: Bryan, Martin, Keri, Pete, Lyn and Brian.
Bryan Jones is the founder and kind of band-leader, raising money through car boot sales, quizzes, collections, Justgiving and any other means possible. He visited Nepal in February, 2017 with Dave Phoenix, founder of the Brick School in Nepal, which provides education for migrant children working in the brickfields of Kathmandu Valley.
While working for pennies these children are doubly disadvantaged by losing valuable education, thus preventing them from gaining the skills and qualifications to improve their economic circumstances. Bryan also visited Nepal’s only school for children with cerebral palsy for whom money was raised to provide a kitchen.
More recently, three thousand five hundred pounds was raised to renovate a hostel for blind children in the hilly region of Parbat – Baglung.
At the time of writing a total of approximately £6500 has been raised so far. Fundraising is continuing apace and new projects are being looked at.
