Agenda 2.

Due to the busy schedule of the members with their involvement in other activities, EON was unable to undergo its meeting and actions in time for proper decision-making. After a long discussion, the Board along with its members, came to the conclusion that EON as an organization is growing with many responsibilities and it is now time for the organization to hire an ‘Administrator’ to carry out the various administration activities. Therefore, the Board took the decision to soon hire a capable candidate for the post of Administrator, who will carry out all the managerial activities on a daily basis. Additionally, the Board also decided to enrol a lesser number of children this year in comparison to previous years, taking into consideration the benefits of the current children in the EON umbrella.

From the previous discussions, all members of the organization have been notified that EON has been providing scholarship to 34 students in year 2073/74 (2016/2017). With its successful tenure in 2073/74 in contributing its small effort in the education for the orphans in Nepal, this year too EON has added 5 more children in its umbrella with the hostel facility. In addition, EON will provide 4 more scholarships during the year of 2073/74 (2017/2018), making a total of 43 children that stand under the umbrella of EON to date.

Henriksen Family Becomes EON Patrons

Henriksen Family Becomes EON Patrons

For the past several years, Mikkel and Marie Henriksen and their family members have been Supporters of the EON Charity. As active outdoor enthusiasts, as well as advocates of the benefits and necessity of education, this unique Danish family became interested in the work of the EON Charity.

After offering an annual donation to EON for several years, during their Himalayan climb and trek with MatterhornNepal-GuideSource in May, Mikkel and Marie informed the EON Board that their family decided to become Patrons of the charity. In doing so the Henriksens have now committed to a monthly donation to continually support the EON children and assure the growth of this important outreach. While every single donation, no matter how small, is crucial to the support of these children, patronage such as that of the Henriksen Family allows the charity to expand and add more children to the educational programme. As a result, in 2016 EON will expand to fully support a total of 37 orphan children!

The EON Board members, all of our other EON supporters, and especially the EON children, wish to thank the Henriksen Family (pictured) for their selfless gesture and gracious patronage. With help such as this, along with each individual donation that EON receives, the charity will prosper and grow with more deserving children being added to the EON Family every year.

World Economic Forum in Geneva Receives EON Award

In 2010, the World Economic Forum in Cologny/Geneva Switzerland became the first Patron of the Education for Orphans of Nepal charity. Due to the +15 year relationship of MatterhornNepal-GuideSource Treks & Expeditions’ guiding outdoor activities for the Forum, the Founder and Executive Chairman Professor Klaus Schwab, expressed interest in supporting the EON Charity’s work. Prof Schwab has been promoting education on a global scale for many years, and has invested a great deal of time, interest and funding toward fostering that commitment. When Prof Schwab learned of the efforts in Nepal by the MNGS co-owners, he became the first Patron of EON as it was established as a legal entity.

Following a unanimous vote by the EON Board of Directors, on September 15th in Geneva Switzerland, The World Economic Forum received the EON Charity’s award entitled the ‘Certificate of Recognition’ for its continued patronage and support. When the charity was formed only seven children were funded, but today, through the support of organisations like the Forum and individuals like Prof Schwab, EON now supports the living and educational expenses of more than 25 Sherpa orphans.
