Support Computershare employees as they trek through the Himalayas to raise money for education in Nepal
The cause – World Youth International
WYI has provided access to basic services such as healthcare and education for more than 40,000 people. Their school, in Gokarna, Nepal, caters for students up to Year 10 and currently has over 500 students. With support from Computershare, the WYI school will be extended to support classes for Year 11 and 12 students.
Trek Nepal 2019 has the goal of raising at least AUD 143,000 to complete the construction and fit-out of a student home on campus, allowing Year 11 and 12 students to live at the school while completing their high school education. For students from remote areas, this will open up new opportunities to enrol at the school; all of the resident students will be able to focus on study without the burden of travelling long distances every day, which can be particularly difficult in the monsoon season between June and September.
