This Week

 Board Meeting


Last Week

As a result of the disastrous weather conditions we suffered over the last week our meeting had to be cancelled.  We sincerely hope that everyone survived in tact and our thoughts  go out to all those that suffered damage and hope that the recovery phase will not be too difficult.

Our appreciation especially goes to the SES and all the service organisations that braved the conditions to ensure the safety and well being of our community.


Next Week

Because of last week's cancellation our Administration Director Torin has had to do some last minute reorganisation and will keep us informed of the program for this week.

Northlakes Toukley Rotary Helps Shine a Light on the

Didi Foundation

A huge thank you to the Rotary Club of Northlakes Toukley and Rotary District 9685 for Shining a light on the Didi Foundation here in Kathmandu

We are so excited here on many fronts, as today, we turned on the solar system here at Bright Future Children’s Home and at our Women’s Centre. 

 We are sincerely grateful to the  Rotary Club of Northlakes Toukley who sponsor The Didi Founation Inc and District 9685 for the generous donation of $4000. As an added bonus, in the next few weeks, we will also be installing a solar  lighting system at the Sindhuli Deaf School.

 Bright Future Children’s Home has been graced with a 60 watt system with battery enabling  eight hours of strong lighting a day and save on the power bills.  As our children are very academic, eye strain is no longer a concern.

Women’s Centre  Through the very generous donation of Northlakes Toukley Rotary and The Pink Umbrella Foundation we  have been able to set up seven computer stations to run IT training programs for women of the lower caste. These computers are going to be run through the 400 watt solar system and supply a light source for the four rooms which will be sufficient for craft and literacy classes.

A special thank you to our manager Sudip and his brother Jagdish for organising and managing the installation of this project

We are so fortunate to have such wonderful financial partners in Rotary who believe in what we are doing.

World Immunization Week

Protecting children through lifesaving vaccines

from Rotary Weekly

The extensive polio-eradication infrastructure created by Rotary, its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and governments and health ministries provides a model for saving millions of people from vaccine-preventable deaths. During World Immunization Week, 24-30 April, the partners are calling for renewed efforts to reach children with lifesaving vaccines and get on track to finish off polio for good.
