Bishnu and her family's house.

Bishnu’s family’s house, which is no longer theirs.

COMMITTED has been supporting with the education of Bishnu Khadga and her siblings for over two-and-a-half years.

You can read about how it all started in October of 2013 here. Details of the support we provided part of that academic year (i.e. October 2013-April 2014) you can find here. Details of the support we provided the year before last, 2071 (2014-15), here following my adventurous journey to visit the family and a fundraising (and awareness) campaigns to support the education of siblings and children of dead Nepalese migrants. Finally, you can find the details of the support we provided last year, 2072 (2015-16) here.

We finally received the details of the expenses for this academic year only just last week!

So, total support needed for the two school-going children for the entire year excluding uniform: 24,000 + 23,500 = Rs. 47,500.

Monthly deposit (for 11 months) (47,500/11) =Rs. 4,318.18.

However, since we are already at the end of Bhadra (Aug.-Sept.), the fifth month of 2073, the first deposit will be Rs. 59,409.09, which includes the following:

  • the deposits for the past five months and the upcoming month of Aswhin (Sept.-Oct.) (Rs. 25,909)
