Since 2000, Birkdale have helped some of Nepal’s poorest children in the Kathmandu Valley. We have raised funds for deprived and needy children living in environments and conditions that dictate that education has either ceased to be available, or is simply not an option. Through our fundraising and charitable service we endeavour to change the life and future opportunities for some of these children.

Each year groups of students from Birkdale visit Nepal including the community of Kokhana, a desperately poor village in the Kathmandu Valley. There the group spend time teaching in one of three schools; it proves to be a life-changing experience for many of them. Through our fundraising activities the village now has a thriving and successful school called the Peace Garden English School with nearly 300 pupils.

Following a 20 year association with Nepal, a group of connected Birkdalians formed a new UK registered charity, led by Keith Brook as Chair, aptly called RNV Nepal. RNV standing for Res Non Verba – the Birkdale School motto. The charity will continue the fantastic work already done by the School. Birkdale pupils will continue to fundraise for the charity and have the opportunity to participate in the annual trip.
