Children Helping Children

On June 13th, the Draper, Utah Corner Canyon Academy  hosted a fundraiser for the Thame School. We had a great day full of Nepali food, music, dancing and fun.

The money raised will go directly to help with the construction of the Thame School that was destroyed in the April Earthquakes. Construction will begin in early Spring.

We at Apa Sherpa Foundation would like to thank Corner Canyon Academy children and family members for taking time out of their busy lives to help children half a world away.

Thank you!
