New schools open soon! Let's celebrate together!

Tickets are on sale now for  Thursday, October 27th, our Fall Gala, The New Heights Project. Come celebrate with us and check out our live + silent auctions, art, photography, and peak inside what the new school designs and supporting systems are all about!  Together we are sending 10,000 children to new heights!


Updates from Nepal!

Our first 9 schools are set to open November 2016! And we are planning an exciting reveal for the kids when they open!

What a view right?! These SHoP designed schools have been an inspiring presence in the villages already, devastated by such tragedy.

We have been employing up to 115 local people daily during this 9-school building phase! 

11 more schools are set to break ground in early 2017. And we need your help to make that happen!

Contest closes October 1.

100% of entry fees go towards school rebuilding.

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. 

We have some amazing entries already! And the contest is closing soon.

12 photographers will be selected to be a part of the gala, will have their work shown on Feature Shoot, will receive an Ona Bag leather camera strap, stuffed animal from Oja Moon, 2 tickets to the gala, and importantly, by entering the contest, will be helping to build our 50 new schools. 
Volunteer Spotlight: 
Eric Socia + Matt McKown

Eric and Matt traveled rocky roads, stacked bricks, made friends, and made a difference!  Then they came home and orchestrated an incredible donation from their employer at AUDI Now, they are organizing another volunteer building trip with us in early 2017 here and are fundraising for that here !

In their words....

"The entire trip was an eye opening experience. Not only were we able to see the destruction first-hand, but we were also able to see the early stages of the rebuilding process.

Perhaps even more significant was the fact that we were able to truly connect with locals in a way I don't believe the average tourist could.

The appreciation the Nepali people had for us lending a hand and the respect we have for them is difficult to put into words. I am extremely thankful that Eric and I were able to work together with Kids of Kathmandu and the entire village of Sarsyukharkha Chukha to make a difference in the children's education and their future. It was the most rewarding adventure I have ever been on."
Don't forget, early bird tickets until October 20th!

Look forward to seeing you on October 27th!
