Fire Cadets - Nepal School Project 2020
The group will raise over £70,000 for a project to build classrooms in the Solukhumbu District in the Sagarmatha Zone of North-Eastern Nepal.
Many children in this district work or take care of younger siblings or elderly relatives, so generally have no education. Working with the charity Classrooms in the Clouds (opens in new window) the group of 17 cadets and nine leaders will raise the money themselves to fund the trip. This will pay for building of the classrooms, the groups flights, accommodation and any equipment needed to finish off the school before it’s handed over to the village during a celebratory ceremony.
They fly out from Manchester to Kathmandu on Saturday 24th October 2020 before embarking on foot for a half days trek through the Himalayas, to get to the village.
They will be accompanied by a doctor from the United Kingdom and will meet Dawa Geljen Sherpa and his team of Sherpas who will accompany the group while they are in Nepal.
