Our journey starts on a dry riverbed in the foothills of the Himalayas, where one young woman decided to help one young girl, hoping to make one small difference. In the blink of an eye – and with a lot of hard work from a lot of people – that hope turned into a home, a school and so much more. Kopila Valley was born and soon blossomed into BlinkNow, a nonprofit foundation serving an ever-growing, ever-inspiring community in Surkhet, Nepal. Our history is an unlikely tale. Our mission is to change the world by empowering Nepal's youth. Our team is built from within and getting stronger. We’ve already done so much together. Now is the time to get involved and add your voice. This story is only just beginning.
BlinkNow runs a monthly donation program that allows their donors to sponsor a variety of things at different donations levels to help BlinkNow's programs in Nepal. Monthly support goes to things like a child's lunch, educational support to students, empowering women from the Kopila Valley Women's center, or providing full scholarships to students. Monthly supporters ensure the women and children of Kopila Valley thrive.
Every child in Kopila Valley school receives lunch every day. That happens regardless of how many Roots members sign up at the $15 giving level. BlinkNow educates 400 kids a year, even if less than 400 people sign up to sponsor their scholarships.
Specific donations go into BlinkNow's general operating fund which supports their greatest need for all our programs, from the school and the Women's Center to thier health programs and their wonderful staff who make it all possible. Roots member support are crucial to the growth and sustainability of all BlinkNow programs. We hope that showing what it costs to feed and educate a child in our school, or support a woman in our Women’s Center, you’ll see that your gift has an amazing impact. Every single month.
