Need: Request for funding for a Library in Nepal

Request in the name of God from Nepal

Proposal to open a Library in the name of Millennium 2015 with the name “Helping Hands Library 2012 in Nepal"

The main objectives will be as follows:

This library is new proposal for poor children, elderly persons and disabled. This library will have course books for the poor children to read and borrow, elderly will meet there and read holy books and disabled can enjoy their time at this library for reading papers.

Over all this Library will be for every body

Venue: to be decided later stage:

As we have realized that it needs regular funding which is very difficult. From local support and international support has also been difficult. As such we have decided to run this library with membership fees from any one who has keen interest to see some change and to do some thing difference and has interest to cooperate.

Pl help us to spread this message to any one to join their heart with us by becoming a member one member annual fee will be Euro50/ Once memberships will pay their fee we can go ahead to start this
A tentative of Euro6,000/ will be in need for one year for regular expenses for rental charges, staffs, regular papers, water and tel and electricity, stationary/photocopy and sundry expenses.

Kindly help us to spread this message to any one for their any kind of support, cooperation and helping hands

God bless
With love and warm regards

Beyond Access


I know it has been awhile since you made this post, but I'm writing to make sure you know about our World Pulse partner, Beyond Access. Beyond Access is a global movement of people and organizations committed to the idea that modern public libraries help drive economic and social development. Beyond Access encourages dialogue, assembles a community, and facilitates partnerships. They also create and curate resources, and provide services and opportunities for libraries and community organizations, development practitioners, and to donors and all levels of government. You can find out more about them at this url:

In order to be eligible for the opportunity to connect with others who support community development through libraries, you must submit to all three phases of World Pulse’s 2014 Women Weave the Web Campaign. You can find out more information about the campaign here, It would be fabulous to have your voice join others as we think through issues around digital access in all its complexity. And the role libraries play in this question would be a good place to start!

As you may know, there is also a prize that will be awarded to an outstanding grassroots woman and visionary voice using digital tools to effect change and advance her community work. The prize will include the 2014 Lynn Syms Prize title, a $20,000 monetary prize to be paid out over two years to support her community based work, a feature profile on, and an all-expense paid trip to speak her message in New York City. You can find more on the website,

The deadline to submit to the first phase is March 31st!

Wishing you peace,
