COMMITTED made a number of changes in 2013. We changed our board and administrators. Our website was also completely revamped.

COMMITTED representatives took part in the Walk for Nepal fundraising walkathons in two American cities: Washington DC and Dallas, Texas. In the former, COMMITTED were the co-organizers. The funds raised through them helped fund fisheries in Thangpalkot VDC and water and sanitation (WASH) project at Raithane School respectively.

Another major fundraising drive–Education Is Freedom–was conducted in May-June of 2013 raising over US$30K.

This past fiscal year, we completed Social Business for Education (SBE) project at Dolagiri School and initiated one in Thangpalkot VDC.

At Dolagiri School, the project involved setting up solar electrification and vegetable garden.

At Raithane School and Chilaune School, both in Thangpalkot VDC, the project is a Fishery.

A number of School Improvement Programs (SIPs) were also completed this year both at Dolagiri school and at schools in Thangpalkot.

At the beginning of 2014 COMMITTED conducted “We’re COMMITTED,” an awareness and fundraising campaign. Following the event, COMMITTED’s friends in Sydney and New York held similar events to raise awareness and funds for the cause.
