Children go to early childhood centers. They are eager to learn, they want to play, and they deserve to be free and happy as children. But all of them are not so lucky. They go to school with some responsibility – they are obligated to look after their siblings even while they are in schools. Their parents or their mother cannot afford to stay home to raise their baby because both of them must work to bring food and to manage all essentials for a house hold, including mrdicines. This situation puts pressure on elderly children and they must do baby sitting of their siblings regardless of their own infancy. We can two young girls with their baby brother or baby sisters on their laps while they are attending children center in Shiksha Jyoti.
Early childhood center of Shiksha Jyoti was just like a make shift that was not able to protect children from rain or wind during adverse weather. CaN initiated to renovate the center. Local committee and teachers got motivated by this and all sat together to decide to rebuild the center. They raised money from their own resources, city also helped almost Rs. 100000 and the foundation helped to put roof on it. Thus, finally a good looking and sturdy structure has been built.
June 5 was a bright sunny Sunday. Our informal gathering, “RamailoBhetghat” was called in a short notice through messenger. At the first sight it looked like whole Surrey dwellers were there in Hawthorne Park Surrey, BC on that very day and there was no room to step in. Any way, we found our spot. Delightfully, every one out of 40 participants had happy time together. Different variety of foods from households, since it was a pot luck, were delicious. Finally, all chipped in for CaN and a small fund was raised. All deserve Big Thank you!
In the end all wanted to have another “Ramailo Bhetghat” soon.
Cell Roti drive is one of the many fund raising events adopted by CaN Education Foundation. In the past years this drive was carried publicly among Nepali families during the Maghe Sakranti, a ritual for Nepali.
The foundation could not go publicly this year. But some Cell Rotis were prepared by the parents of Nitika Thapa, who has donated all the money raised by the drive to CaN. This is love of Nitika to Nepali children who are sponsored by CaN. Nitika and her parents express their gratitude who liked to enjoy their Cell Roti. CaN and Nitika Thank you to all who donated for Cell Roti.
Wishing all a happy Maghe Sakranti.

On April 25 2015 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 – 8.1 and a maximum Intensity of IX (Violent) struck Nepal severely impacting 15 districts closest to the epicenter, which by latest count has killed more than 7,200 people and this number is growing as rescuers and relief team reach remote villages.
Many charity organizations are working in this situation to bring relief operations which are necessary to avoid further loss of life and livelihood.
At this juncture CaN is working with local organizations in this regard. You can also donate for the earthquake victims in Nepal. Your donations to CaN will go directly to the victims for emergency supplies like, food, drink, medicine, shelter, and clothing where our friends are working tirelessly.
When the immediate livelihood needs are met, we will also start reconstruction and/or re-building schools, providing school uniforms, supplies, and taking care of orphans.
