Meet two wonderful shopowners in Sigtuna who asked how they could help us raise money to our schools in Nepal after the earthquake!
Petra owns “Sport Uteliv” in Sigtuna and Arja owns “Knocks” in Sigtuna
To both Petra and Arja: Make a Kid Smile is so grateful that you are letting us put information about our work in your stores and for the interest you are showing in what we are trying to accomplish.
Here is what Petra and Arja are using to help raise money: Information and Small cards.
Make a Kid Smile is proud to announce that we now have two ambassadors in Nepal. The ambassadors will help the foundation to spread information to both tourists in
Nepal and local authorities. Also, they will try to find children in need of scholarships to valid education, distribute collected toys to our Global Buddy schools in Nepal etc.
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.
We are happy to announce that we have initiated a collaboration with Täby Jarlabanke Rotary Club to collect money for scholarships so girls in Nepal can go to school.
