    Paul and the mountains 2018
    Last year our Trustee, Paul Thomson, tackled both the Ariégoise and the Etape du Tour, two gruelling mountain rides for keen (and very fit) amateur cyclists. Thanks to generous sponsorship through a fund raising page on our Total Giving platform, he raised a significant amount towards our continuing support for education of young people from Sikkim.

    Nedup writes about his internship
    Nedup and Rha Thsering have finished their internship at Ujjivan Small Finance Bank in Kolkata, and Nedup has written about his experiences. You may think think that banking is a bit dull! And the departments that the two passed through sound very bureaucratic: Collective Social Responsibility, Operation, Credit, Audit, Vigilance, Administration, Strategy and Planning, Finance and Accounting. However if you read his note you will find that this kind of banking operation is a real agent for

    Rekchan and Miksim at Year 10 primers
    Rekchan and Miksim are both getting extra tuition. Year 10 (16/17 year old) pupils finish in December, then have no schooling before their Year 10 exams in March of the following year. We felt that both would benefit from extra tuition before the exams. Rekchan is a pupil at Dr Graham's Homes. His Year 10 schooling has been disrupted by the shutdown in the summer of 2017, following civil unrest. He has organised for himself a tutoring college place in Kalimpong and somewhere to stay, proving his
