Fundraiser and Book Launch – Himalayan Dreams: The Story of Som Tamang


Join us for a special evening to celebrate the launch of Friends of Himalayan Children Founder Som Tamang’s biography “Himalayan Dreams: The Story of Som Tamang” written by award-winning former ABC journalist Kirsty Nancarrow.


You will enjoy a delicious 2 course meal, music, raffles and discussions with Kirsty and Som.


Proceeds from this event will go towards Som’s dream of extending Batase School in Nepal to Grade 12 and support children in Batase Village to attend school. Education has been the key to Som protecting girls in rural Nepal from sex trafficking and child marriage.


The evening will also include the official launch of The Friends of Himalayan Children Nepal RAWCS Project (Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd).

The project is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Cairns Sunrise. Over the next 3 years with the help of Friends of Himalayan Children in Australia, they hope to fundraise to provide facilities to accommodate teachers and students so they can study in Batase. Donations to this project are tax-deductible.


Cost: Adult $55.00 / Child(under16) $25.00


Book your tickets through trybooking.
