The event organisers are supporting Dolma Development Fund an NGO and registered charity lead by Tim Gocher with a dedicated team of volunteers including Carla Teixeira and Alvares Kaspar who know the Rasuwa region intimately, and speak the local dialect. Carla will be sharing her recent trip on the night.
Focussing efforts on the invisible people, Dolma Development Fund is the only team who supports the Dalits, outcasts, orphaned and disabled children in this area, with education sponsorship programmes. Tim has pledged to rebuild the school in Dhunche lost in the first Quake.
Tickets are £25.00 ( this takes care of a child's welfare and education for two months in Dhunche)
Your support cannot be underestimated at such a crucial time. Bhorle, at the foot of Himalayas, still is without essential food and medical aid with 21 families living in 9 tents. Lets enable Tim from Dolma Development Fund to make a meaningful difference up there.
