In the last year we have fundraised to provide desks, benches and whiteboards…
THE BOOK THAT STARTED IT
Our founder, Sophie Maliphant, experienced the 7.9 richter earthquake on 25th April 2015 first hand and it’s the children’s book that she wrote and illustrated afterwards that is the foundation of our story and the starting point of all that we do.
It’s where we got our name, and it and it continues to be part of the ongoing journey. A perfect tool to start conversation and connect with people globally.
Watch a short video that takes you on our journey, from Sophie’s eventful welcome to Nepal to how our interactive workshops are reaching more people…
Our four key values are:
Does what we’re doing create a lasting connection, either with knowledge, resources or other local people? We want to create connections within communities that allow them to grow sustainably.
And does our work leave people feeling empowered with a sense of their own self-worth and the difference they can make?
Is this action, this workshop, this delivery of resources coming from the right place? From a place of care, consideration and love rather than a need to ‘get something done’ or fulfil an unrelated goal?
How can we work in a way that encourages equality for all? From gender equality, to education equality and within the caste system too.
WHERE IS THIS GOING?
A very valid question. We are continuing to grow and develop what we offer as we visit more communities, work with more people and collaborate with more organisations. Organically, this means that what we offer is evolving and as our network grows, the number of people that we reach will also multiply.
That is our goal, to reach as many people as we can with this work, and deliver the information to them in the most effective way that we can.
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER
