Stelly’s raises money for Nepal trip

Stelly's secondary school students hope to build a well-doing village in Nepal

Students from Stelly’s secondary school hope to build a village for less fortunate women in Nepal.

To help them get there, the Grade 11 global perspectives class is holding a fundraiser in conjunction with Ten Thousand Villages in Saanich.

Every year, the school’s Grade 12 global perspectives class have taken a trip to another country to dig wells, buy hospital beds or complete other helpful projects.

“This year we’ll build a house for a caretaker and get the crops workable,” teacher Elena Beristain said.

The Grade 11s will continue the work of the Grade 12s by building a house for Nepalese women who are victims of abuse, or sex trafficking.
