Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid have partnered with buildOn to fund and build schools in rural communities in developing countries. In April 2021, buildOn completed a new school in the village of Chaap, Nepal funded by your donations. 25% of the Nepalese population live below the poverty line and 36% are illiterate. The village of Chaap has approximately 500 residents of which 75 are young students. The students of Chaap previously learned in two overcrowded classrooms with three teachers teaching 5 grade levels. With their new facilities, they are able to learn in a functional building equipped with desks, space for every student, and bathrooms.
Khima is a 13 year old female student in the 5th grade. Her favorite subject is English. Dilip is an 11 year old male student in the 3rd grade, who loves studying math. Both Khima and Dilip want to be teachers when they grow up. Through the donations we've collected at our Charity Fill-A-Bag Sales, you've helped break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and expectations for students like Khima and Dilip. The students of Chaap thank you for your donations!
