Hope for Education
Hope for Education ( an effort to raise money for school in Namje) here in Kathmandu this past Saturday was a grand success!
The turnout was well over expected- more than 170 people- and we managed to raise over Rs. 1,28,000 (approx USD $ 2031) after costs. Food and wine was good and the live performances by Tulsi Parajuli, Kunti Moktan, Sita Gurung, Kutumba, Barta Gandharva and Mica Sundari were superb. This is in addition to Rajiv Goyal’s previous fundraising effort in New York, which had already raise about $30,000
The event and Namje got some press in a few of the dailies (including http://www.kantipuronline.com/kolnews.php?&nid=132889) and interviews are still underway.
