BlinkNow is a grass-roots organization working to empower young people to become pioneers in developing their own solutions to world poverty. The organization targets under-developed, war-torn countries where extreme poverty exists. These nations have high rates of illiteracy, disease, child labor, and unstable governments, thus making them the prime focus for our organization.
We believe that to solve any problem one must reach the source. Our organization operates at the grassroots level of community and focuses on promoting sustainability and self reliance in everything that we do. This organization will not offer the band-aid solution or quick fix money to individuals. We believe that if given the proper tools and initiatives, people and communities anywhere in the world can raise themselves out of poverty. We will focus on building and growing the communities we work within as a whole, by implementing programs that reach the poorest and benefit the whole.
Kopila Valley Children's Home and Primary School, Surkhet, Nepal
We opened our doors to our cozy, bright, and joyful home in spring 2008. Today our Kopila family has grown to 40 beautiful, healthy, happy, and thriving children. In the spring of 2010 we were thrilled to complete dream number two: Kopila Valley Primary School. Our new community-built bamboo school is home to around 300 students (nursery through 8th grade).
Our Vision To sustain and improve the quality of life and the future for children of Nepal.
Our Mission To create a self-sustainable living community for destitute children that provides their most basic needs and also contributes to post-war recovery and peace in the nation of Nepal.
Kopila Valley High School
Currently, we are working to establish a high school in the area of our Children's Home and Primary School. The land has been purchased and money has been raised to start construction. All we are waiting on is approval from the government. The site will also be the future home of the Kopila Valley Primary School. The new buildings will be constructed using green design, focusing on sustainability.
Kopila Valley Women's Center
The women's center is in the construction phase, nearing completion. Once it's finished, the center will help us train local women in vocational skills.
