YP Space helps a Nepalese School

Reaching Everest Base Camp and raising almost $60,000 to support youth homelessness in and around Port Macquarie would seem to be enough of an achievement for one month. However, YP Space MNC Inc with the support of Port City Bowling Club Ltd also spent a day at Mahankal Secondary School in Galfutar, Kathmandu helping repaint and plaster the classrooms. 

Claudia Buckby of Port City Bowling Club said “this community day was a perfect way to round out an amazing trip”.
Port City Bowling Club has partnered with YP Space MNC Inc for the past two years to help raise awareness within the local community of youth homelessness and also of the work YP Space MNC Inc does to support kids who find themselves in this position – providing short term crisis accommodation, transitional housing, early intervention and prevention and ongoing support.  

Last year they decided to challenge themselves in more ways than one – to get a team to climb to Everest Base camp, while raising much needed funds. Both goals were achieved: 12 people reached Everest Base Camp and almost $60,000 was raised.  Along the way the Port Macquarie & Kempsey local community supported the group and became more aware of the homelessness situation in the local area.
