Learning for Life would like to thank our Project Sponsors:
The Dan Doherty Memorial School
We are delighted to announce the official opening of the Dan Doherty Memorial School in Makwanpur, Nepal. The ceremony took place on February 20th and was officially inaugurated by Dan's husband Neil Fullbrook. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Neil and Daniel's family and friends for their generosity and support.
Skydive In Memory Of Dan Doherty
Learning for Life would like to send a massive congratulations and thank you to the group of incredible people who took on a 12,000 ft tandem skydive to raise money for the construction and running of the Dan Doherty Memorial School.
Including Gift Aid, these incredible fundraisers, led by Pervin Todiwala have raised £14,572.44 from 250 generous donors.
Learning for Life enables South Asia's most marginalised populations to gain access to education, health and employment - the basic human rights that form the first, essential step in overcoming poverty. We work in Bangladesh Nepal and India, and have long-established links with Pakistan and Afghanistan.
We work with local partners to provide catch-up education for working children who have never been to school or have dropped out, training for teachers, vocational training and reproductive health services for women, and capacity-building and rights awareness for communities. We provide our local partners, who understand local issues, with the skills and support to help communities set up and manage practical and sustainable projects that meet their real needs.
We aim to be transparent, accountable and innovative. Our track-record of establishing stable, sustainable projects that continue to make a permanent difference, gives us great pride.
The video below highlights the progress made by one of Learning for Life's most successful projects, the Floating School project in Bangladesh.
Dan Doherty Memorial School case studies
As the pupils of the Dan Doherty Memorial School go through their educational experiences provided by the school, we are fortunate enough to have received some case studies from three students: Sagar Thing, Mamata Praja and Sarita Praja.
