Will buy a Days for Girls menstrual hygiene kit. These long lasting kits are life changing for the girls and women of the Dolpo.



Will buy a LuminAID portable solar light for a family whose only light is fire from yak dung or a kerosene lantern.



Will pay for a complete kit of school essentials for a student. 



Will provide lunch for a student, every day of the school year.



Will pay for the materials for a greenhouse. A shortage of arable land and a changing climate is making food production increasingly challenging.
