Yesterday we received this message from @BlinkNowOrg, an account that you suggested we follow for this month’s theme of Forces For Change, and we wanted to take this opportunity as the monthly theme comes to a close, to shine a light on this amazing organisation in Nepal and the work they are doing. The Blink Now organisation’s journey started on the very real concept where one young woman decided to help one young girl, hoping to make one small difference. Today the Blink Now organisation provides a loving home for over 40 children, a school for 350 young students, a safe house for 10 of their most at-risk female students, a new school campus made from the earth and many more incredible initiatives. • “We have the power to create the world we want to see every day” – Founder Maggie Doyne Their mission is to change the world by empowering Nepal’s children. They do this by providing quality education, a safe environment and through inspiring others, but almost more importantly, they do this by believing in community first. They believe that if given the proper tools and initiatives, people and communities anywhere in the world can raise themselves out of poverty. We want to thank you @BlinkNowOrg for the kind message and for continuing to be a #ForceForChange.

A video message to Prince Harry and Meghan from Children of Nepal
The couple shared a video from the BlinkNow Foundation, a small organisation changing the lives of children in Nepal, explaining they wanted to ‘shine a light’ on the ‘amazing work they are doing’.
In the clip, excited children from the foundation thank the royals for their support: “Namaskar, Meghan and Harry. We’re so thankful that you chose to support BlinkNow as a Force for Change.”
The youngsters go on to introduce a guided tour of the Kopila Valley children’s home and the subsequent school, which is the ‘greenest’ in Nepal due to it being powered entirely by solar energy.
“At our Kopila Valley women’s centre, over 200 women have participated in vocational training and empowerment workshops,” continues one of the children. “When women are empowered, the entire community is uplifted.”
