On Tuesday, the 13th of November, the students of the International School participated in a sponsor run to support the Tara Bodong Foundation. This foundation is an initiative to improve the education of girls in Lumla, North-East India.
Thanks to the hard work of all the students, we already collected over €2000,- to support the foundation!
All the money will go directly to the education and housing of girls who are enrolled in a school built by The Tara Bodong Foundation. In this region, boys are usually allowed to go to school, if there is a school nearby. However, girls have to look after their younger siblings and care for sick family members. For these girls, the school that is being built by the foundation is the only chance of an education and an escape from poverty.
The sponsor run was a success and definitely a great start, but we would love to help the foundation even more by selling tulip bulbs. You can help us make a difference! For €3 euros, you can buy a package of 10 tulip bulbs and for only €5 you can buy two! Contact the school reception for details!
