Nepal14 has decided to host A Night for Nepaland have recruited the help of the Edge Hotel School, and three of the country’s leading female chefs. The dinner will be accompanied by an auction and raffle.
The Edge Hotel School who are a vital part of our team here at Wivenhoe House, are hosting a charity event in collaboration with Nepal14 and three of the country’s leading female chefs, where they will be hosting a dinner accompanied by an auction and a raffle.
The difference they made to the facilities at the school, together with the enthusiasm of the children and staff, inspired the trekkers to continue supporting the school, located in a remote mountain village near Kathmandu, upon their return to the UK.
This they have done in association with Children of the Mountain (COTM), a charity supporting the poorest children in rural Nepal by providing them with opportunities through education and personal development. The newly created Nepal14 group, set up to co-ordinate future fund-raising activities, were delighted with COTM’s vision to make Shree Mahendra Bal a “showcase” school in the Kathmandu area and use it as a demonstration site for future supporters of the charity.
The initial plan was to put teacher training in place, followed by the building of a kindergarten. However, within days of the plan being finalised, the earthquake of May 2015 occurred, causing widespread devastation to the school.
Faced with the challenge of almost totally rebuilding the school, Nepal14 has decided to host A Night for Nepal and in doing so has recruited the help of one of the leading lights in UK hospitality education, the Edge Hotel School, and three of the country’s leading female chefs, Lisa Goodwin-Allen, Madalene Bonvini-Hamel and Chantelle Nicholson. The dinner will be accompanied by an auction and raffle.
In addition to creating a new school, encompassing a kindergarten, the fund-raising initiative will also help fund the training of teachers, school meals, uniforms, books and creative materials. All new classrooms will be built to specifications to withstand any future earthquake.
