We are approaching the end of another fantastic year for Tara Bodong. As we are wrapping up our last fund raising activity, we look back at another year of plenty activities and successful fundraising for our girl school project in Arunachal Pradesh in the North East of India.
I would like to thank everyone who has been so generous and kind this year to support our foundation and thus our girl school project through donations and/or the purchase of goods – from tulips to champagne to local merchandise.
A special thanks as well to all the volunteers who have given up their time and energy to the Tara Bodong Foundation. I would like to thank in particular Cecilie, Debbie, Deborah, Elizabeth, Eva, Margaret, Silvia, and Tatjana – the drivers behind the Tara Bodong Foundation.
However, we are not there yet, where we want to be with our project and also in 2014 we will need your help and support.
I would like to quote a great man who recently passed away and who should be an inspiration to us all – Nelson Mandela:
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered a secret that, after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
