A PRECIOUS GIFT
CAP FOR A CAUSE
At Redbird, we believe in the transformative power of education, and we're excited to share an initiative that's close to our hearts. Partnering with the remarkable Pahar Trust Nepal, we've embarked on a mission to make a tangible difference in the lives of young students at Shree Surya Devi School in Nepal through our "Cap for a Cause" campaign.
In Nepal, a country where around 80% of the population resides in rural areas, access to education is often a challenging pursuit. Communities in remote corners grapple with barriers like limited healthcare, urban migration, and the effects of climate change. Shree Surya Devi School stands as a beacon of hope in one such village, offering education to 188 pupils (including 98 girls) from Kindergarten to Grade 6.
Sadly, many students are forced to drop out of school after Grade 6 due to various challenges, including young marriages and limited access to secondary education. But you can be a part of changing that narrative. Redbird's "Cap for a Cause" initiative pledges to provide school uniforms to the children of the Shree Surya Devi school, bridging the gap between education and engagement. For these children, a uniform signifies an unbreakable link to their dreams.
Beyond the Uniform: Nurturing Futures
With your support, we're on a mission to outfit the entire Shree Surya Devi School of 188 children in the first year of this initiative, extending the gift of education to more children.
We've chosen our iconic vintage cap as the embodiment of our donation mission, "Cap for a Cause."
"Why?", you ask.
