Maxine and Emma's 24 miles in 24 hours - Journey to Jagdishwor

Maxine

Story

Our names are Emma Brambilla and Maxine McKellar, sixth form students at Dubai College. At Dubai College we are beyond privileged to have all the resources and opportunities that we do, it means that sometimes we can take for granted our campus and the buildings that enable us to learn and grow as students. This year, we have chosen to fundraise for the Dubai College Journey to Jagdishwor in the hopes that we can contribute to the construction of a new school building in Nepal, to give these students a safer and newer school in which they too can receive an education every child is entitled to. To support this cause we will be running, cycling and rowing a total of 24 miles in 24 hours, any donations will be greatly appreciated!

The Shree Jagdishwor School (SJS) in Bimal Nagar is in desperate need of reparation.  Situated on the main Kathmandu-Pokhara Highway, this primary school has requested support from local government and NGOS for more than 10 years, and has been overlooked.  There are 123 students (69 girls and 54 boys), and 12 teachers.  10 of the teachers are funded by the local government and 2 by the local community.

The existing 2 storey building has 4 dark, damp rooms but the focal concern is a crumbly brick staircase.  The building is more than 25 years old and simply isn't earthquake proof.  The Dubai College Foundation project with Pahar Trust aims to demolish this building and replace it with a 6 room, 2 storey building.

Building is due to commence in October after the monsoon season, and will take up to 9 months.  The estimated costs for this project are $67,000.
