Kathmandu, February 13:

Child singer Nirajan KC has urged all children to provide Rs 2 every month to the National Helpless Child Education Fund set up to extend educational and other supports to helpless children across the country.

The 12-year-old singer organised a musical programme in Kathmandu this week to announce the formation of the Fund, show his talent and collect funds for the education of unprivileged children. He also handed over Rs 15,000, collected from the concert, to Matri Nepal Asahaya and Apanga Sangh of Nuwakot for the education of 10 children. He also announced to provide Rs 10 from the sale of each CD of his songs to the Fund.

KC, a seventh grader in Alpine Academy at Dachhi-4 of Kathmandu, has decided to dedicate his musical journey to collect funds for the poor and helpless children.

“Due to conflict, a number of children have landed on streets and these helpless orphans are learning destructive works due to the lack of proper education and guidance,” he said. “Therefore, I would feel great if I could extend a little support to these children for their bright future,” he said.
