Outside of our carbon emissions mission, one of our ongoing programs is our work with Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival and the children of Nepal fund.
The second phase of support to the children of Nepal from the Posh Tomato fund of Fuji Rock Festival 2019 was completed on December 13 at Janajagriti Basic School, Patalekegaun village, Kavre district, Nepal. It is about 44km from Kathmandu and takes about 2 hours to get there.
There are altogether 101 students in the school. Almost all the students are from lower caste and lower income family. Often, children are only wearing a shirt in cool weather and very cold winter days. Therefore, the request from the school was to provide some warmer clothe item and a school bag.
As per their request, we have distributed a warm jacket and a school bag with printed school name and famous saying “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
Overall, we have found it very beneficial to distribute such things, to a school that is in great need.
All the students, parents and teachers are very happy with our support. All are grateful and thankful to Fuji Rock and Posh Tomato!
Here are some pictures taken during the distribution program.
