Emma's campaign for Street Child

Raccolto € 384


Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. 

On the 22nd of October, I will start a two-weeks long trek to Mount Everest Base Camp (5380m) to raise funds for Street Child. I have been living in Kathmandu, Nepal since late May and I have had the incredible opportunity to be involved in the projects of Street Child of Nepal, which focus on providing quality education and opportunities to Musahar girls here in Nepal. 

Musahars are the most politically marginalised, economically exploited and socially outcast group in Nepal due to a caste system that considers them untouchable, and suffer extreme exclusion from education and employment. In fact, just 4% of Musahar children are in school after age six, and 100% are out of school after age ten. The literacy rate is 7% amongst Musahars, and a mere 3.8% amongst Musahar women and girls.

Street Child’s work has so far been vital for ending the marginalisation of the Musahars. In fact, we are supporting 3,000 women and girls to learn basic literacy and numeracy, alongside providing life skills workshops and livelihoods support to help them set up businesses and become financially independent.

Having worked on this project for the past 5 months, I have had the chance to see its lifechanging impact on the Musahar community. Therefore, I’m teaming up with Street Child on my trek to Everest Base Camp to help raise funds for the Musahar girls. ALL donations will go towards helping children into education through support such as paying school fees, buying uniforms and learning materials, training teachers or refurbishing classrooms and building schools. 

For example,

£30 can send a child to school for a year

£200 can pay a rural teacher’s salary for a year

£1000 can refurbish and resource a rural school

£2500 can help a rural community gain a first ever school

If you have any spare change, please send it our way!

Thank you for your time,
