How Can I Help?
HOP’s sister company, World Wide Trekking, organizes frequent trips to Nepal, to visit Everest Base Camp and other areas throughout the magnificent Himalayas. If you are interested in visiting Juving Secondary School, contact us or visit World Wide Trekking for upcoming trip dates.
Monetary donations will help pay the teacher salaries, student tuition costs, and maintain the facilities in Juving.
During HOP’s “Rays of Joy” project, we worked extensively to deliver solar-powered equipment to the small town of Juving, which lies off of the main trekking route to Everest Base Camp. While there, we discovered that the village was lacking basic amenities such as chairs, desks, and well-trained teachers. HOP worked with the school’s headmaster to build desks and chairs for each of the school’s 350 children, paying the salaries of four trained computer teachers for a year, and installing a PA system, and an industrial water filter. The students and village residents now have access to clean drinking water year-round.
A recent follow-up visit in spring of 2018 found that the new facilities at the school are well-maintained, and are being used every day by children and the community alike. Teachers are now holding classes in English, computer skills, and social studies, and HOP is exploring new ways to support the community in Juving. HOP has also committed to making sure that each child attends school every day by paying the $2 yearly tuition cost for each child at the school.
In November of 2018, Dean Cardinale traveled to Juving with a device called RACHEL World Possible, which allows the computers at the school to access nearly 500 GB of educational resources. He also brought two Kindles pre-loaded with over 100 children’s books.
HOP is committed to supporting the village of Juving by continuing to cover the cost of tuition for the children and maintaining the equipment we’ve installed.
