We had a very successful dinner event to support children and adults with disability in Nepal this past Thursday, September 15th.  We had a fundraising goal of $10,000 for our event and we blew past that amount and have raised in excess of $12,000.  This gives us the ability to continue the support of our Braille Book Library, our empowerment program for deaf women and our support of blind students with nutritional (food) support.  These are just a few of our critical programs that enhance, empower and improve the lives of people with disability in Nepal.

Our gratitude goes out to all of our wonderful volunteers who helped us with the dinner this year.  Without their help, we couldn’t have done it!
During my presentation, I looked out at the 90+ TRIFC/Nepal supporters in attendance and couldn’t help but feel honored to be a part of such an empowering group of people.   This helps drive me to continue my efforts to improve the lives of people with disability in Nepal.  Thank you!
Warmly,
-Rob Rose
