10th Anniversary Campaign

Support ISAK’s Project Nepal

“When I heard the news from my friend, I couldn’t help worrying; for a day or two, that was all I did. Then, I thought of how we could help; when I talked with the other Nepali students, they were of the same mindset and we started our project.”
– Karma, Nepali student, ISAK Class of 2017

One Life. Realize your potential. Be a catalyst for positive change.

When a devastating earthquake struck Nepal last week, our three Nepali students were heartbroken; but it didn’t take Karma, Sangita and Himanshu long to realize that they could make a difference. By using the guiding principals taught in ISAK’s leadership program, the students developed a solid, actionable plan based on what is most important, and then expanded their project to include the entire ISAK community.

Yesterday the students announced ISAK‘s ProjectNEPAL 

ISAK Project Nepal

In an effort to make the project as impactful as possible, the students have launched a crowd-funding campaign at GoFundMe.

You can make a donation here.

ProjectNEPAL  has two main goals:

1. To provide help in rural areas in Nepal, because currently the urban areas are receiving much help and relief, but many of the rural areas have been rendered inaccessible do to the earthquake and these areas are in need of relief.

2. Longterm, to help restore affected places around the country, with a special focus on educational institutions and World Heritage sites.

The money raised will be sent to a group of monks from the Thrangu Monastery who are already working tirelessly to help people in rural areas. One of the monks is Karma’s brother. Right now, the students plan to focus on Sindhupalchok. This district is currently inaccessible because of the earthquake, landslides and floods. The plan is to use the money to hire helicopters to take supplies into the area and to transport injured people out who need immediate medical attention.

The students ask that even if you cannot actually donate money, to please share the donation page on all platforms that you can because “each and every contribution and share helps create happiness and peace in Nepal.”

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
