READI Nepal update

On this momentous occasion of the 16th anniversary of READI Nepal (READI established on 2nd May 2008) we are filled with immense gratitude for the unwavering support and guidance that has fueled our journey of empowerment in the hidden Himalayas of northwest Nepal. Your gracious support for the longer term has been the cornerstone of our mission to uplift communities in the most beautiful yet often overlooked region.

Today, as we celebrate this milestone, we are thrilled to share the remarkable success stories of the students who have emerged from our programs. Recently, our advisor in Kathmandu had the privilege of meeting with a few current graduates of READI Home who are studying in Kathmandu, and the outcomes were nothing short of extraordinary. These bright minds, once nurtured under our wings, have now thought to spread their wings even further, embarking on diverse educational paths that promise to shape the future of Himalaya’s and beyond.

It fills our hearts with pride to learn that almost all these students, supported through TRAS, have secured scholarships to pursue higher education in fields ranging from engineering and hospitality management to dental technology, forestry, and agriculture.

As we bask in the glow of their success, we are reminded of the ripple effect that READI Nepal continues to create in the lives of several families in Humla.

On this auspicious day, we extend our deepest gratitude to all the TRAS board members and donors who have stood by us, whether through financial contributions, volunteer efforts, or simply words of encouragement. Your belief in our vision has been the driving force behind every milestone we’ve achieved, and we are profoundly grateful for your continued partnership.

Thank you for being a vital part of our story and being a mentor/supporter from the beginning, and may our shared commitment to empowerment and solidarity in Humla continue to light the way forward.
