You can make a difference !!!
You, our readers of EverestNews.com have made a difference and we are proud of
But now we face a new and bigger challenge.
The Ginette Harrison School (GHS) is under threat. It is the
best school, with the best education in the area. But the buildings are
rented, and the Maoists are threatening the owner, and the school staff.
SHIVA Charity was about to build a £3000 annexe to the
school for the nursery pupils, but the Maoists have said "no".
We are "told" we must build a completely new school about
half a kilometre away BY JUNE 2005. No real reasons have been given except
that it is close to the government school, (which the charity also helps).
The new building will need at least 12 classrooms, and will
cost £13000. PLEASE HELP US! We have the land on which to build a school,
thanks to The Festival Medical Services in Bath, and we have £3000 from the
Ginette Harrison Memorial Fund for the nursery school annexe.
Please help the charity to raise £10,000 by June so that the
200 children can continue with their education!!

in the area for three weeks. The banners ask for the Maoists to give them
their education back.
