Thank you to everyone who came out to our annual fundraiser in Burlington, Ontario! We hope that you had as much fun as we did! The total raised was $30, 000!

NSP is now accepting Aeroplan Miles for donations! Donate NOW! Aeroplan's Charitable Pooling Program focuses on supporting organizations and individuals who want to improve the lives of people in their local communities. Your Aeroplan Miles will aid NSP in travel, car rental, hotel stays and merchandise. The donated Aeroplan Miles may also be used as prizes for fundraising. In some cases, community members may also use this pooling option to help an individual in dire need of assistance for medical purposes or a family emergency. NSP is fuelled by our relationship with our Board in Nepal and our ability to respond to crisis in our villages. To do our job well we need to be on the ground in Nepal as much as possible, collaborating on projects and building capacity. Your Aeroplan Miles would go a long way in helping us to meet our goals.
