Hope everyone has been having a great summer!

Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 27th for our Fall Gala, The New Heights Project. Come celebrate with us and check out our live + silent auctions (including artist designed kites!), art, photography, and peak inside what the new school designs and supporting systems are all about!  Let's go places together!

Updates from Nepal!

Our 9 schools that have broken ground are making great progress. See below the work that was done from the foundation up! Summer work slows down a little because in Nepal summer includes "monsoon season." Many roads become difficult or impossible to travel on. But our teams are pressing forward where possible, and we are still looking at November/December for our first schools to be complete! And for 2,000 children to have a new school to call their own!

closes oct 1.
Show us your photos and help thousands of kids get back to school...to find education again, a source of hope and a place for dreams. 

In partnership with one of photography's favorite sites, 
Feature Shoot  and their new Instagram  @childhoodeveryday,  
we are looking for photographs that capture the experience of growing up around the world. 

12 photographers will be selected to be a part of our NYC gala & photography auction on October 27, will have their work shown on Feature Shoot, will receive an Ona Bag leather camera strap, 2 tickets to the gala, and importantly, by entering the contest, will be helping to build our 50 new schools. 

Volunteer Spotlight: William Vasquez

William is currently driving a Tuk-Tuk across India in the "Rickshaw Run." And the final lap is just around the corner! He is covering 2,100 miles, and fundraising for Kids of Kathmandu. 
We have been watching his adventures unfold ( https://www.instagram.com/williamvazqueznyc/) , 
and love hearing about how he is able to share stories of our work with those he meets to garner support. You can support him here 
He's raised 79% of his goal!

Hope everyone soaks up the last of summer in all the best ways.

Look forward to seeing you this fall.
