First Friday Lunch – in aid of Freedom to Learn

1 Oct 2021

Where: Main Hall

Description

Entry: £6 – pay on door

Every month a charity is invited to arrange a fund-raising lunch at the Centre which are always well-attended.

This month the lunch is in aid of Freedom to Learn, a UK based charity, which works to provide the opportunity of education to children from some of the remotest regions of the Himalayas and South Asia.

They do this by working collaboratively with local grass roots organisations as implementing partners. This structure is not only a legal requirement in Nepal and India, but also ensures that the work they do is locally and contextually relevant. It safeguards against wasted resources, increasing the prospect for sustained and significant impact for the communities they work with.  Their partners “Rural Community Foundation Nepal” “Edulift” and “Sahasi Ketaketi” are all monitored and audited by both their National Governing Charities Body and by their team on the ground. And after working together since 2012, they know they do a fantastic job.

“We are also committed to raising public awareness about the importance of education and development work; facilitating and mentoring advocacy projects in both Nepal and the UK.

In many areas of the developing world education is key to lifting children and their families out of poverty. Providing adequate education is fundamental to helping young people and families gain independence and emotional and financial security, that we often take for granted.
