Garden School Raises Awareness And Two Grand For Nepalese Relief Efforts

Garden School Key Club members presented a check for $2,000 to a representative
from Adhikaar, a local Queens Nepali support organization to help with earthquake
relief efforts in Nepal. www.adhikaar.org


Displaying a characteristic commitment to the school's mission of "social involvement",
Garden students were moved by the earthquake devastation in Nepal and wanted to help. A group approached the administration who encouraged their planning.


Councilman Danny Dromm helped Garden School identify Adhikaar as a local
organization who could help the donations get to those most in need. Members of the
Garden School Key Club, in particular ninth grader, Aneesh D., led fundraising efforts
that included a faculty vs. students soccer match, a "change jug" in the hallway and
donations from the Garden community. Adhikaar Program Coordinator, Raji Pokhrel
gratefully accepted the donation and spoke to the students about relief progress and her
country's continued need for international assistance.
