Nepal Earthquake: TBS Kathmandu Appeal

Published on 6th May, 2015 by Andrew Wigford. Published in For Candidates / TIC News / TIC Social

The British School Kathmandu is located close to the heart of the Nepal disaster. We received word today from its Principal, Dr. John Moore that fortunately the British School has been able to reopen for learning. This isn’t the case for many schools in the country.

Below is a plea from Dr. John Moore for help towards the rebuilding of some of the schools that have been devastated by the earthquake. To support these efforts TIC has set up a GoFundMe page and all money raised will go to the TBS Nepal Charity appeal. TIC staff will be making their own contributions to this cause and we hope you can too.

Any contribution you can make will be go towards the school rebuilding efforts, as John explains below. Please visit the JustGiving page here: to pledge your support and you can follow news from the school on its Twitter page @TbsKathmandu.

Message from Dr. John Moore, Principal of the British School Kathmandu

The school has actually been very fortunate and we reopened yesterday to get going again. We hope to help the city and country get back on its feet and we have some charities we want to support. They are all places where children will not now get schooling for months if not years unless we do something and the school was the focal point for extremely poor families.

What we would like to do is to continue to work with our current charities because we can be assured that money pledged to our care will result in every single penny being spent on projects that TBS children and students can help them with and see develop over time. We will be directing our efforts to helping school rebuilding projects for our Dhading schools, Bungamati DSA school (hearing and sight impaired children) and the Disabled New Life centre. The buildings have been devastated and they served large communities of people who needed them desperately These projects will benefit children, are related to education, and we know they will give long term benefit to the children and people of Nepal.

We will make sure every penny is spent on our charity projects, staff will donate their time voluntarily to administrate these charitable efforts and students will be leading on liaising with the schools and organising the rebuilding process. (All monies will be fully accounted for and available for presentation to those who contribute on an ongoing basis).

We will also update people on progress with our TBS charities if they send an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or via the website pages above.
