At Mexicali Blues, this summer vacation is all about school. We’re helping our friends at the dZi Foundation build a brand-new school in earthquake-ravaged Nepal—this time, in the remote region of Rok, Solukhumbu.
The people of Rok live a day’s walk from the nearest road and a two-day walk from any kind of medical care. They are a resilient, self-reliant people, but almost a third of the structures in their community were destroyed by the earthquake in 2015– and have yet to be rebuilt. Their children have been without a school for years and the lack of a safe learning space can set an entire village back for generations.
The Erskine family made the long walk through the valley this spring to visit the first school Mexicali Blues helped dZi to build. They’ve seen firsthand just how hard it is for help to reach this part of Nepal and how great the need for that help really is. They met the children in these valleys and saw the joy and opportunity that a safe, secure school provides them.
Our friends at the dZi Foundation work hand-in-hand with locals over long periods of time to rebuild the things that will restore and strengthen communities: bridges, healthcare centers, and schools. They are doing good work but need resources like building supplies.
Our customers have come through for the people of Nepal ever since the terrible earthquakes of 2015 and we know we can count on you now. Donate today, and Mexicali Blues will match your contribution dollar for dollar—up to $25,000. The #MexicaliMatch will double your donation and help the dZi Foundation rebuild the Janajagriti School twice as fast.
Thank you for helping our world goods to do a world of good!
