|Dhanyabaad from all at Bhakta Vidayshram|
I just wanted to thank each and every one that has written me over the last few days. For those of you that have offered to bring books from all over the globe and those that are and will be in Kathmandu that have volunteered their time to number and catalogue each book. Without your support none of this will be and could be possible. I am so excited to see a dream come true not for me but for each and every child that will have the opportunity to read the stories and fairytales we all grew up with. To give them the opportunity to lose themselves in the stories we loved and whom many of us now read to our children and grandchildren. I do hope those of you that will be in Kathmandu in December can join us when we hand over the books to the school. We are still very much looking for any basic children English books. The ages of the children range from Grade 1 to Grade 10. There are approximately 150 children at the school, so not a very big group. If anybody has any time to assist Shreeju during the coming months with cataloging and collecting books, please email me at email@example.com.
The school only has 3 cabinets that can lock for us to store the books. As you can see from the picture the cabinets are not in very good shape. If anybody has a cabinet standing around at home that is not being used, please do keep the school in mind. The classrooms have no windows and there are no doors. This leaves the children and everything inside completely exposed to the rain, wind and all the elements. For that reason we need cabinets that can lock so that the books can be protected until we can raise enough money to upgrade the building.
