Dear Madam,
We are grateful to you and your foundation for providing scholarships to the needy children of Acme Academy , Nepal.

Most parents in Nepal have understood the importance of education. They are migrating from village to towns in search of better livelihood. Yet many of them are uneducated and find less paying jobs thus are unable to provide good education to their children. Government school’s education is in pathetic condition. Every parent’s dream is to send their children to private school.

The Make a Kid Smile foundation is fulfilling the dream of those parents who were unable to send their kids to a private school.

We, the school and families hope that the scholarships will be continued and the needy students will get quality education at our school.

Thanking you and with best regards,

Sita Pokhrel

A Trip to Nepal

During the spring of 2011, two of Make a Kid Smile´s board members went to Nepal
to honor our scholarship students and to find more Global Buddy Schools.

All pictures below are taken at a ceremony at the ACME Academy  in Kathmandu, Nepal, where the pupils are given their grades. Make a Kid Smile acknowledged their students by giving them a  Certificate of Scholarship and the pupils entertained. Even the school got a present, painting materials for the children.
