Formal educational and fundraising partnership with TRAS
TRAS is actively seeking partnerships with primary and secondary schools in Canada. The goal is to facilitate cross-cultural education and communication between students in the Himalayan regions and in Canada. Curriculum-based projects enables children and youth in the respective Himalayan and Canadian countries to learn about each others’ life, culture, environment, politics, economics, etc. In exchange for facilitating this exciting cross-cultural learning opportunity, TRAS asks the Canadian partner school to take responsibility for raising funds for its partner school overseas.
