“Inside Media has been a sponsor of the Children of Sikkim for over seven years since we first became aware of the work they do.

To receive updates from first Hissey and then Pema has been fantastic, as are the general updates and the calendar each year full of smiling faces!

When Amy returned from a visit to Sikkim, she was able to share with us first-hand how all of the children are eager to learn and intent on having fun – just as we would want for our own children.

What for me is most striking is that, in our terms, a modest contribution is transformed by the work of the charity to make such a profound and positive impact on the prospects for the children.

In the simplest terms, it creates a lifetime of opportunity for the youngsters and to be playing a small part in that is a privilege and enormously rewarding.

It is great testament to the charity that they support the children as they fulfil their potential in a caring environment that allows them to flourish – long may it continue.” Simon Russell, Managing Director

Update 2021

Pema did not go on to secondary school, so Inside Media then co-sponsored Phurba. After leaving Inside Media, Simon Russell has continued to sponsor him to this day. Phurba is now in Year 10 (Year 12 is the final year of secondary education).
