Denver Fundraiser for Nicaragua and Nepal Rural Schools

namloboy.jpgCall today (303/399-3649) to make a reservation for Namlo International’s Ninth Annual Fall Dinner and Celebration, featuring a Nepalese buffet dinner in Denver, Colorado. There will be a silent auction of several vacation destinations (Costa Rica, Mexico, Estes Park, and others) and crafts for sale from Namlo’s communities in Nepal and Nicaragua, including a fashion show of cotton and silk Dhaka weaving shawls made by the women in Nepal.

Namlo International was founded in 1999 by mountaineer Magda King (the first Spanish woman to climb a 8,000 meter peak) and her husband, Dr. Hugh King. With funds from private donors, Namlo has built and helped communities to support four schools — two in Nepal and the most recent two in Nicaragua. A site for an additional school in Miraflor, Nicaragua, has been selected with construction scheduled to start in October 2007.

You’ll also learn about the full details of Namlo’s upcoming volunteer trip to Miraflor, Nicaragua (at the end of October) and the amazing story about Changa, the first girl to graduate from Namlo’s high school in Nepal.

WHERE: Montview Presbyterian Church, 1980 Dahlia St., Denver, CO 80220
