Noreen Seabrook Sponsored Schools
Since our involvement with our mills in Nepal which dates back as early 1990, we have become aware of the reality of the lack of education available in Nepal, and particularly for our weavers' children.
With support from our accounts, we have contributed funds to sponsor three schools for our weavers' children. Those up to the age of five attend classes in English, Math and Nepali in these schools. Classes are held five days a week and are staffed by qualified teachers and aids. At present there are over 150 preschool age children at our schools.
Donations are met dollar for dollar by each manufacturer. All proceeds for directed to this cause go directly to the children's care.
We have made arrangements to establish these schools because we felt a responsibility as well as a desire to help those whom we are connected with both in business and personally.
