It was in far West Nepal in 2017 that we first met 10 year old Jonas. We were immediately taken by his inquisitive nature and intelligence beyond his years. He was already accomplished at doing "profit & loss" statement lessons, given to him by his 5th grade teacher when he breezed through the regular curriculum. From a small piece of broken solar panel, he also had made a phone charger! We became determined to get him a better education. Since the spring of 2018, your donations have provided his tuition to the "Living Stone Academy" in Kathmandu, where he is now top of his class in mathematics and science!
Our next "kid friendly" fundraiser is at Brother Don's Bar and Grill
4200 Kitsap Way, Bremerton.
Saturday August 10 , 5pm - 9pm.
Music by Final Notice featuring Bobby Evans, starts at 7pm.
Raffle, live and silent auction items include a private plane day trip for three to an island in the San Juans via the classic Beechcraft V35 Bonanza pictured above!
Handmade items from Nepal will be available for purchase, including knit hats, caps and scarves plus bags, wallets, jewelry and more.
Please join us, and bring a friend!
"I know a friend who has been very instrumental in helping these children as he traveled throughout these areas and saw a need to take helping them steps further. I have not the experience of his travels but only vicariously through discussion. I hope this mission grows as it is a worthwhile mission." ~ Dianna E.
"A really worthy cause - the kids benefit greatly". ~ Judy M.
Information on how you can support the foundation and our Nepal friends by purchasing their handmade items, will post here soon!

"Planet of Kids Foundation" President Don Manning and "Fair Trade Group - Nepal" District Coordinator Gyanendra Pathak met in Bagdol near Kathmandu, in November 2018. They discussed the teaming up on future projects and transactions that will benefit both organizations and therefore the people they serve.
