Meena has again made a trip to Gorkha and delivered books and bookshelves to 2 schools in our Promis Project.

Monsun is soon over Nepal and we are in a hurry to get the books out there before the roads get impossible to drive on.

 

Thank you again Promis AS and Promis Qualify AS for your amazing contribution to Gorkha`s schools and their students.

EFL Open House Fundraiser in Dubai

By | News, Uncategorized | No Comments

Monday April 25th, EFL teamed up with other Norwegian vendors in Dubai, to host an Open House Fundraiser. And, what a day we had! Tables filled with beautiful handmade products from Nepal, UAE themed paperproducts, printed cushions, jewellery, Alo vera products and a faboulous lucky draw, made the ladies spinning and generously opening their wallets for the good cause. During the five hours event, we managed to raise the fanatstic amount of AED 15100,- or about NOK 33000,- It was above my expectations!

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who attended the event, without you and your support it wouldn’t be possible to do what we do!

Thank you to https://www.facebook.com/cahootsuae/, https://www.facebook.com/by.cha.design/(Christine Haugseth Andersen), Forever Living Products (Sissel Osaland Morris) and https://www.instagram.com/bymica/ (Lisbeth Wisur) for taking part in this event and a special thank you to Lisbeth, who not only opened her house, but also designed and made our very own EFL necklace! We would also like to thank Anne Lise Kaaby Aas annelisekaaby.com and Elin Gade Husby for donating their artwork to our raffle!

From Borre, Norway to Ramchap, Nepal

By | News, Uncategorized | No Comments

Book delivery to Shree seti Devi Kali lower secondary school.

A school far, far away in the mountains in a very poor area. It was hard to get there as the road conditions were really bad.

The school fell down under the earthquake and they literary had nothing.

They have rebuild the building, but there is no walls. It was very cold up there and I can only imagine how it is at winter time. By the time we left it started snowing and raining. This is above 300o meter over the sea level.

The teachers told me they have nothing and needs all they can get. So they were very grateful that we came.

I admire the teachers for their spirit to teach the children despite the hardship they have.

Borre Secondary school in Norway have with the fund they raised, given the school a full library, stationaries for a year to come, whiteboards , notebooks and math equipment.

Salute to you guys !!!  Every single dollar was spent towards this school. We even had 200 USD left that will go to other schools waiting for books.

Bags from Aerobridge and colour pencils and some stationary from Katharina Mestermann!

Seeing is believing, and I know how much it meant to them to receive these books for the children and the teachers.
