A yak for Christmas

Give the gift of education with Kathmandu

Give the gift of education with Kathmandu

With the help of Kathmandu, this Christmas you can give the gift of education, and make the world of difference to children in Nepal.

Make a donation of $10 or more in store at Kathmandu (in selected stores) and take home your very own little woolly yak for your Christmas tree. Every Christmas tree needs one of these gorgeous decorations.

Make a donation of $5 in store and you’ll get a limited edition, beautifully-designed yak Christmas card.

The gift of education

Every dollar raised will go directly to the
early literacy programme. Getting a good start in reading and writing is an essential foundation for future learning. Yet literacy levels throughout Nepal remain low, preventing too many bright, keen and deserving young people from fulfilling their potential.

Your donation will help provide the best story books and literacy materials, and help teachers receive regular, ongoing coaching in the classroom to help them teach reading and writing more effectively.

With a nurturing and inspiring environment, children can learn and thrive.

Thanks to Kathmandu
