In 2018, we built our own primary school in western Nepal, providing education opportunities for over 150 students.
In May, we traveled to the village of Baishakha where we worked hand-in-hand with the community, skilled construction
workers and BuildOn.org to get it done. Kirstin even carried a giant boulder on her head. But our rupees did the real heavy lifting. We believe that the pen is mightier than the sword. And hard cold cash is mightier than the pen. Because cash can build a school in Nepal faster than a pen can. And pens have poor construction management skills.
We had so much fun building the first school, we’ve decided to build another one in Senegal, Africa. 100% of donations will go towards construction of the school. All classrooms will be gender equal. We will be working with BuildOn.org to get it done.
