New charitable partner…
At M:Power we are committed to helping charities during the course of the year and we are pleased to announce that our first charity partner is Child Rescue Nepal.
Please read a message from their Chief Executive, Jo Bega:
Child Rescue Nepal are one of the only in charities in Nepal who actively rescue children from slavery. We also prevent trafficking through raising awareness and prosecuting the perpetrators. We have rescued over 750 children, reuniting the majority with their families. We have also pursued the prosecution of 24 traffickers, helping jail 14 in Nepal and India.
Whilst rescuing children from slavery is an important part of our work, preventing children from being trafficked in the first place is far better for children, and more cost effective. Tragically, 80% of trafficking victims in Nepal have never enrolled in school. We work in the trafficking-prone district of Makwanpur, supporting over 40 community schools. We train teachers in child-centred methods, set up libraries, fund midday meals and provide educational bursaries for children whose families can’t afford the basics – such as uniforms, shoes and stationery. We also fund classrooms, taps and toilets.
We are delighted that M Power Accounting Services have selected Child Rescue Nepal as their charity partner, matching every donation to helping us to strengthen and support remote schools in Nepal. With your support, we can keep children safe in schools and out of the hands of traffickers.
As we come near to Christmas many of us will look to donate some money to charity; so in that spirit of goodwill I am please to confirm that M:Power Accounting will match any donations up to a value of £50 given by our clients as well as making a donation ourselves.
