Long term CITC supporter Dave Thomas provides a fascinating insight into the work of CITC as he reflects on his recent visit to Nepal, read his blog here…

Feverest is back!
The CITC Feverest challenge is back for 2019!
Feverest is inspired by CITC supporter Olly Middleton who is running every day of February to help raise money to support children’s education in rural Nepal. He will be running 250km in February, equivalent to the height of Everest every day of the month!
How many ‘Feverests’ can you complete in February? Could you take on the challenge to get fit and raise money for Classrooms in the Clouds?
Can you run/walk or cycle the height of Everest 8.8km (5.4 miles)? Whether you do it daily, weekly or as a one off, on your own or with a group, we would love to see your photos!
Use the hashtag #Feverest and tag us @CITCNepal on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter

Cheshire Fire’s Sam Rogers, Rachel Main, Joshua Brunning and Hollie Barlow have taken part in an interview on Martin Logan’s The Irish in the UK show along with Sarah Hagen from Classrooms in the Clouds. The interview was a fantastic opportunity for the apprentices to talk about the fundraising they have been working so hard at to help children in Nepal to get an education. Over the last two years, they have dedicated their time and efforts to support the funding for the new 4 classroom Early Years Centre in the remote village of Kharikhola, Nepal which is due to be completed in March. They also discussed their upcoming trip to the school where they will help the community to finish the project in time for the opening. Read more here. It was great to see Sarah Hagen on the show to spread the word about the work of Classrooms in the Clouds and to express CITC’s appreciation for the apprentices’ commitment and enthusiasm for the project.

It has taken 90 days for Vivienne Arkell and Joanne Chapman to walk from Land’s End to John o’Groats with the support of their friends Tracy and Jason.  They have covered an astonishing 1,235 miles, persevering through rain, shine and numerous pairs of boots! Their determination has raised an amazing £2,354 between them for CITCNepal!
The end to end challenge officially finished at 4pm on Thursday 29th June at Duncansby Head (the most north easterly point in the British Isles). Check out Vivienne’s fascinating and highly entertaining blog to read more about their adventure and to see their stunning photographs that really show off Britain’s great beauty.

Their efforts will help us to continue to make a difference to children in some of the most remote areas of Nepal by building classrooms and delivering a high quality education.

CITCNepal are delighted to announce that 6 new classrooms at Shree Jeevan Jyoti Higher Secondary School in the remote Nepalese village of Kangel are now open!
The Cheshire and London Fire Cadets have been working tirelessly over the last 2 years to raise money to support this much needed project and have spent the last 2 weeks working hard in Nepal. They have overcome challenges including plane delays, heavy rain and trekking through difficult, mountainous terrain. Nevertheless, they have remained in high spirits are were keen to get stuck into painting and decorating, tidying and cleaning once they arrived at the school. The opening of the classrooms was a cause for great celebration and the local villagers made the Cadets very welcome with singing and dancing. Click here to read the Cadet's blog of the trip

The build has attracted many admiring comments and is a unique and wonderful beacon for the local community. The exemplary standard of the construction is evident and is a credit to the construction team who have worked through extraordinarily difficult conditions brought on by a particularly heavy monsoon season. It will make a huge difference to the children of Kangel who, since the 2015 Earthquakes have been studying in inadequate, temporary shelters that are prone to overheating in the hot Nepalese sun and leaking during the monsoons. The new earthquake resistant classrooms will provide a fantastic learning environment where the children can be inspired to succeed in their education.Picture Row

CITC is committed to raising standards for the children of Kangel and the 2018 phase of the project will include further facilities including clean running water and gender specific toilets. We look forward to sharing more updates in due course.
