We had our second fundraiser of the year on Sunday, August 23, 2009 at Candy Bar in San Francisco. A special thank you goes out to Trang Nguyen, Carolyn Chang and Quinn Wong for organizing this fun event. We were able to raise $1,370. A big thanks to everyone that came out to support us!

The pictures was taken by Wayne on his first visit to Nakote Village and used for postcards. Kids showed their gratitude by drawing and writing on the postcards to our donors. The postcards were sent from Nepal throughout the world.

Those are materials bought for the new school construction. 70 sacks of cements, and 19 quintal of irons have already been bought and transported to the village. Locals are collecting additional sands, stones, and gravels.
