Manisha UK Fundraising ...

Manisha UK is a not-for-profit charity, being run entirely by volunteers and focussed on supporting establishing Sustainable Schools in rural communities of Nepal. In order to reach this goal it’s vital we continue to fund raise so that we can create a better future for the children of Nepal.

Without the amazing generosity from people like you we simply would not be able to continue our life changing work. Manisha UK receives no government funding, so we’re incredibly grateful to our fundraisers for their efforts and energy. Your decision to get involved is truly a great one. So thank you!

To ensure as much money as possible does directly to the cause, we encourage volunteers to fund the costs of their placements themselves. We do not wish for any sponsorship or donation from members of the public to be used cover travel costs or placement expenses. 

Additionally, we do not we do not wish individual children to be sponsored by our volunteers or for our volunteers to encourage other people to sponsor individual children. We would much rather that any sponsorship or donation of this kind is directed to the charity such that it can be used to the benefit of the wider rural communities in Nepal and thereby help establish a sustainable school that will benefit the many rather than the individual.
