A House party was held at David and Mary Parker’s house for the Sankhu Palubari Community School and our pledge was matched.They took a moment to remember Emily and her contributions to the school during the program.

We will be supporting the textbooks for students in nursery through grade 10.This year the students will have a new school, as their school was destroyed in the earthquake.

The Sankhu-Palubari Community School (SPCS) in Nepal provides a free education — from pre-K through grade 10 — to the neediest children in this rural Kathmandu Valley area. Founded by The Advocates for Human Rights and operated in partnership with Educate the Children-Nepal and the local community, the school gives a genuine alternative to child labor and a brighter future.

Beginning its first year with 50 students, SPCS now has more than 340 students enrolled. In 2014, the third class of students that began kindergarten at the school graduated from 12th grade. All graduates have continued on to study at a university in Nepal.

The SPCS curriculum includes Nepali, English, grammar, math, science, and social studies. Extracurricular opportunities include poetry, art, music, Nepali dance, speech, and sports. Students also learn the fundamental principles of human rights through “Alfulai Chinau,” a human rights curriculum developed especially for the school. The school also provides a daily meal, health checks, and immunizations for all students.

We are very proud of the school, Advocates for Human rights, and thank David and Mary Parker for their long friendship with Emily.india and nepal, beckyand laura 398emily-182.jpg
