Annual Report and Accounts 2015-16

The year 2015-16 was another very successful one for the charity.

By the end of December 2016 we were able to increase the number of sponsored children to 40 from 32 in the previous financial year. The Trustees have agreed that 40 children is the maximum we can support at any one time given our level of resources. We now have three young women studying at university.

Our fundraising was again very successful over the year. We received a further grant from Futures for Kids (FFK) charity and together with several other sizeable donations KIKN was able to assist a third school, Lubhoo, in a poor district east of Kathmandu. We have been able to purchase a total of 20 computers together with desks and chairs and the solar panels needed to run them and also set up a breakfast club for 100 of the children at the school. Of the newly sponsored children, 7 attend Lubhoo School, one of whom is on the front cover of the annual report.

During 2015/16 the Trustees and friends have organised numerous successful fund-raising events.

The year 2014-15 was a challenging one for the charity. On the 25th April 2015 a powerful earthquake hit Nepal, with its epicentre near to Kathmandu. KIKN set up an appeal to raise emergency funds and with the help of an immediate donation of £5,000 from the Futures For Kids charity and donations from many other people nearly £16,000 was raised by the end of June 2015.

We were able to increase the number of sponsored children to 32 from 29. Our fundraising was again successful over the year.

We received a further grant from Futures for Kids (FFK) charity and together with other funds raised KIKN was able to support the ongoing work to the two schools Science Labs as well as purchasing an additional 12 computers and associated furniture.

The year 2012-13 saw the charity increase its funding streams again. During the year we increased the number of sponsored children from 22 to 27.

FFK is a charity established by City of London futures traders with the aim of funding small charities in the UK and abroad. We met a director of FFK at our 2012 charity cricket match, and he suggested that we make an application for funding for school computers. In 2012, our Chief Officer completed a sponsored walk to support FFK’s fund-raising efforts.
