Sapana Village Lodge

Project

The Sapana School opened in 2016, starting with 20 children ages 2,4, and 5 years old in a kindergarten group. The school works with a child centered education system in which the children are counselled in their learning process by teachers and child care assistants.

Sapana Village Lodge supports as well, many projects which aim to develop the community, respect the culture and generate job opportunities.

Sapana, the Nepali word for “dream,” is a uniquely designed hotel situated in an incredible location bordering the beautiful, natural heritage of Chitwan National Park.

Beginning as a small business hotel, Sapana Village has developed as a Sustainable and Responsible Eco Tourism Project. It distributes part of its profit from the hotel business to run effective projects and programs that focus on poverty alleviation and preservation of local heritage and culture.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 24, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
