Excited to Launch New SMD Film

This is the story of life at SMD School, from the perspective of SMD student, Nehla Sangmo.

We hope you love this short film as much as we do.

If you are inspired, then please share it widely! Continuing to provide free education to Himalayan children depends on growing our SMD Family of supporters.

Big Shout-out to filmmaker James Frystak. James visited SMD in May before heading to Everest

Base Camp and climbing Mt. Lobuche. He fell in love with the kids and returned after his climb to create this short film for SMD. And, James and his fiancé Alison have become sponsors!

Sponsorship Update:

In our last NBF Newsletter this spring, we reported that we had 100+ students at SMD School that required sponsorship. Through your incredible generosity we have managed to find sponsors for over half of these children. Thank-you so much for your support!

We currently have 50 kids that still require sponsorship:

- 28 Boarders

- 20 Day Students and

- 2 Senior Students

If you would like to sponsor a SMD student, please visit our How to Help page from our NBF website.

General donations of any amount are also gratefully accepted, and help to finance the school, especially to meet the costs that sponsorship does not cover. We provide charitable tax receipts for all donations received in Canada.
