Make a Donation or Sponsor a Child


SMD School is wholly funded by donors from 27 countries around the world. It is thanks to the continued generosity of our supporters, that we’ve been able to provide free education to Himalayan children for over 30 years. Your donation, no matter how small or large, is urgently needed. You can help as follows: Sponsor a Student; Make a Donation to SMD General Fund; Contribute to the Building Fund (we are saving for a new school); or Contribute to the Higher Education Fund (supports grade 11 and 12 students). Please make your donation through one of our registered charitable organizations in Canada, USA, Hong Kong or Europe.

Student Sponsorship Rates (May 2020 – April 2021)

We currently have over 20 students who need sponsors still. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown in Nepal, we’ve had to send all students back home to their families. We are still retaining our staff on payroll to ensure their livelihood, and are checking in on the kids from a distance to ensure they are ok. As such, your continued support is critical and greatly appreciated.
