Adventure Aid Nepal is a non-profit organisation that combines both volunteering projects and adventure. We offer safe, responsible, affordable and sustainable low-impact volunteering to support the poorest communities, particularly schools and children, that have received very little outside help since the earthquake of 2015.
The Juniper Trust, (UK No. 1053356, Established 1994), is working with Adventure Aid Nepal and other partners, to raise money to rebuild 20 schools in Nepal, 19 have been rebuilt so far, the latest was in 2021 in Maili Village. The Juniper Trust is raising money to rebuild its 20th school in the village of Ranjana Beni, approximately 100km from Kathmandu close to the many of the previous schools they have rebuilt.
Any donations to AAN will be channelled through our Just Giving Page to the Juniper Trust, a charity completely run by volunteers where 100% of donations go towards the projects will be supporting on your trip.
We hope to raise £10,000 to purchase and deliver new uniforms and equipment for the 100 children at Ranjana Beni School and for three of the schools built by Juniper Trust in 2019 (it costs just £25 to giver a child new hope with a school uniform, shoes, rucksack, pencils and books), buy much needed school equipment and to provide books for a school library. We will also buy and help plant 3,000 fruit saplings during our visit. This is a group fundraising target, there is no individual requirement and no lower or upper limit to what you can raise. Fundraising initiatives will be shared on the AAN Facebook and Instagram pages.
Your volunteering experience will be more fulfilling if you raise some money for the schools and children you will be visiting.
We encourage all the AAN volunteers to set up their own individual “Just Giving” pages for a private challenge of your choosing. You can take inspiration from our 2002 group who managed to complete several personal challenges including a two-mile lake swim, UK’s 3 peaks challenge (climbing Ben Nevis, Snowden and Scafell in 24 hours), accompanying children on a a Specialist Academy Trust 5k walk from Marske to Redcar, running 5k a day for a month, setting up a village cake stall, hosting a coffee morning… There is no limit to what you can achieve. Any funds raised will go direct to the Juniper Trust and added to the Group Just Giving Page total. Fundraising initiatives will be shared on the AAN Facebook and Instagram pages.
Every penny helps! Adventure Aid Nepal & Juniper Trust, both completely run by volunteers to ensure 100% of donations go towards your project and to where it is needed most.
