DIDI BUILDING APPEALyou can help change a destiny
Didi Building Appeal Stage 1
Thanks to our very generous supporters, Stage 1 of the Didi Building Appeal target of $30,000 has been reached.
A very big thank you from our Didi team to every person, club and group who donated to this project. Your generosity will empower so many highly disadvantaged women and give them an opportunity to succeed.
This project would not have come in on budget and on time if it was not for our awesome Nepali team who have worked tirelessly and been there to count every brick and every item on delivery. Thanks go to Sudip Koirala, Jagdish Koirala, Jyoti Dhal and Laxmi Koirala who make it all possible.
The internal fitting of the building has commenced and courses will begin in the new centre in late October. The new building will provide additional space for training as well as a women’s health education centre and medial referral agency. Of the 3 shop fronts, 2 will be rented out to provide income to cover the running costs of Didi HQ. Our women’s co-operative will also have a shop front which will be income generating for our women.
The official opening of the new Didi Women’s Centre will be held on 25th April 2019. We are honoured that the Australian Ambassador to Nepal, His Excellency Pete Budd, will open Didi’s new vocational centre. Many Nepalese dignitaries and Ministers from various government departments will also attend the opening. The opening coincides with two Didi Aid Tours, so we hope to have many of our tour volunteers attend the event.
Watch this space …
Another appeal will be launched shortly for Stage 2 – construction of the top floor – when we will need to raise another AUD $30,000 to complete the project.
Didi Foundation is breaking the cycle of poverty through education to CREATE A FUTURE AND CHANGE A DESTINY – as one person, we can make a difference.
The Stage 1 Building Appeal target of $30,000 has been reached. Thank you.
WATCH THIS SPACE … Stage 2 of the Didi Building Appeal to construct the top floor will begin soon.
