Goodness in Action
In Nepal, extreme poverty has led to a lack of quality education and this lack of quality education has closed opportunities for a better life. To break this vicious cycle, Choithrams teamed up with Dubai Cares to help improve conditions.
Choithrams helped Dubai Cares improve the conditions of a small school in Maghi, Nepal, by donating 872 volunteer work days. The result is a beautiful school that can now accommodate hundred boys and girls. The quality and access to education also has been greatly improved. Now, the village of Maghi in Nepal is determined to move from poverty and is gearing up to inspire and educate future generations.
Earlier in 2012, Dubai Cares held a “Walk for Education” event along Jumeirah Beach Road, in support of children who face obstacles in pursuit of education or who are deprived of basic education.
Choithrams gave away goodie bags with freebies on this event as a token of support and encouragement.
