They have learned about the culture, environment, religion, and struggles of these Nepali students and taught them about their unique Austin lives in the United States. After developing a relationship over the school year, every June the students will meet and speak to their friends on the other side of the world via video chat.
The Rawson Saunders students, faculty, and families additionally hold fundraisers for our friends at Canopy Nepal. We've organized clothing collections, annual bake sales and coin drives/donations to send to our friends. 100% of the funds raised are used to purchase books, school supplies, computers, and other necessary learning tools to further the ISLearning mission!
Stay tuned for our blog posts documenting our first activities at the RSS / Canopy Nepal chapter!
