Recap of NEIO Fundraiser “A World Away” Photo Exhibition Reception
“A World Away” held on August 13, 2011 was made possible by many of you who came and supported the event! Together we’ve raised a net total of $2540.04 to kick start our next project in Nurbuling School. Our next goal is to support quality education in an English learning environment for these village children. Together with local support, we’ll fund an English teacher to teach at all grades in Nurbuling. We will keep close contact with the teacher to ensure that these children are making the most out of their educational experiences. More updates will be posted on our blog so stay tuned!
Here are some images taken by Lisa Whalen Photography who was so grateful to sponsor her time in photographing at the exhibit.
