Sister Schools Program

Sister Schools Program

In 2010 we started our Sister Schools Program. We found an amazing desire from several local schools to learn about and foster a relationship with schools in Nepal. Over the last years we have had partnerships with Academy at the Lakes, Admiral Farragut Academy, Canterbury School and Independent Day School. There was an exchange of letters and art as well as financial support from the Tampa Bay Schools to their poorer cousins.  One IDS student created a T shirt which used art from a Nepal student to raise money as her class project. Also IDS gathered art supplies and made two art posters which were delivered to the schools in Gulmi. Admiral Farragut started a ‘Change for Change’ fundraiser. And every year Academy at the Lakes has supported Surkhandi School in Chitwan and enabled us to run our food program there, supply all the students with sweaters and also book and other school supplies. With our adding a new country and continuing our work in Nepal we welcome new schools to partner with us in the future.
