Aide Népal Magnoac

Better to light a candle than complain about the dark

Aide Nepal Magnoac supports education projects in Nepal

Our story

In 2015 Nepal was struck by two massive earthquakes. Many thousands were killed and whole villages were destroyed. A group of friends living in the Magnoac area of the Hautes Pyrénées department in South-West France decided to raise funds to help fund the re-building of schools which were damaged or completely destroyed. In 2016 we funded 50% of the cost of rebuilding the school in Taruka, a subsistence farming community in the foothills of the Himalaya to the west of Kathmandu. The school has 150 pupils all between 5 to 10 years old.

Encouraged by the success of this effort, the group decided to form an officially-recognised association, in order to continue the work on a better legal basis. Aide Népal Magnoac saw the light of day in July 2016.

The group’s fundraising efforts have continued since then financing the repainting of the Taruka school in early 2018 and now working on building schools in other villages.
