The Juniper Trust has a long history of supporting projects which are directly linked to Health and Education. Funds come from the generous support of individuals, organisations and schools who have formed a close connection with communities they have visited through KE trips, or through hearing about Juniper Trust’s work.
In India, historic projects include the rebuilding of Congress School in Darjeeling, a major overhaul of the facilities at the Lingshed Hostel in Leh, the installation of Solar panels in a remote village in Spiti and general support for the Ladakh Flood appeal in 2010. In partnership with KE, JT has given the Northern Areas of Pakistan considerable support over the years including teacher training and recently the building of a new school in the remote village of Asumbar. In Kenya, the Trust has helped Island School in Ol Maisor, a small village beneath Mount Kenya, and Gitare Primary School in Tanzania has benefited from a new library. In Peru’s Huayhuash and Cordillera Blanca regions, JT has supported Val Pitkethly who has been the driving force behind the installation of 4000 solar lights. In Nepal, KE supports the Adarsha Bal Vikas Kendra (ABVK) School for physically and mentally handicapped children and the PRAN Centre of Excellence. We are currently rebuilding 10 schools in Nepal following the Earthquake in 2015, the biggest project in JT’s history.
