How have we helped?
In May 2012, 21st Century Leaders gave former volunteer Hanna Hassanbek Whatever It Takes products to arrange a fashion show, with the proceeds being shared with 21st Century Leaders and her chosen charity Mission Himalaya.
Hanna Hassanbek went to Nepal with her school The English College in Dubai. Funds raised were used to build the Eco-Farm Home for the homeless children charity Mission Himalaya. Whilst Hanna was out in Nepal she helped carry out necessary labour projects at the site, ranging from digging footings for the planned multi-purpose hall, painting the interior of the dormitories and play room and helping demarcate the organic garden which will provide the project with food and a sustainable source of income.
