How to donate
QEN is recognised by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission as a Public Benevolent Institution.
As such it can issue tax-deductible receipts for donations over $2.00.
There are two ways you can contribute:

Direct donations

Rotary Foundation Global Projects, while they provide n effective way to extend training to new groups of teachers, do not address our entire funding needs.  We have two particular further requirements that do not fit the Global Grant Project model:
* further development of LEARN and extension of its services into other areas (including researching the impacts of training that has been delivered)
* providing annual refresher training for all teachers who have entered our programs.

To meet these needs, we require funding from other sources.

To make a donation, please:

*  make a direct funds transfer to Quality Education Nepal Inc., BSB 633-000, a/c 161108436, giving your surname as reference.  Transfers from abroad will require bank details: Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Limited, The Bendigo Centre
Bendigo, Victoria 3550 Australia;

Swift Code:BENDAU3B.  Transfers can be made in Australian dollars.
Please send an email to
info@nepalaid.org.au to advise of your contribution, giving your address for the receipt; or

mail a cheque to:         Quality Education Nepal Inc.
