Happy Christmas... from Britain!

As you may know, the Sam's House children attend Gorkha English Boarding School, which provides classes nursery through 12.

The school recently formed a international partnership the King Edward VI Humanities College in Spilsby, England. Last year the two schools did an instructor exchange and some British teachers visited Sam's House and were impressed by 1) the house, and 2) that our supporters were helping the children attend such an excellent school as Gorkha.

Upon their return to Britain, the teachers raised some money among the students to purchase some Christmas presents for the gang.

From their note: "The students fund raised to buy Christmas presents and had a lot of fun doing it! Some wore their pyjamas to school for the day, some organised goal competitions, others sold cakes and on the last Friday of the week, everyone wore blue and red (the colours of the Nepalese flag) for 50p. We really enjoyed these activities and had a lot of fun while thinking of you all."

Needless to say, the children were thrilled... Happy Christmas!
