Kutumba Band from Nepal perfomed at the Readington Middle School. Students were very inspired by this event and during their Make a Difference day celebration students raised more than $2600 dollars for the Nepal Orphan project to help 50 students to go to school.
FONNJ's commitment to Education:
100% percent of the membership dues will be dedicated and channeled to Scholarship programs in Nepal. Currently, the scholarship fund of close to US $ 2500.00 a year is provided to various schools in Nepal. The criteria for the scholarship require that the recipients maintain 75% passing grade in their studies. These selected students are currently enrolled at various Schools in Nepal. Profiles and interviews of the students will be carried out soon and communicated to all via our website http://www.fonnj.com. If you would like to help with this project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the help from friends and well wishers, FONNJ has made an effort to make access to education easier for a certain number of Nepali children.
