Stephanie Graham is a passionate supporter and volunteer for the Magic Yeti Children's Library Project. With no previous fundraising experience she raised $20,317.00 to help establish and stock three libraries in Nepal, while empowering the lives of 1200 children.
Following her fundraising success, Stephanie spent three weeks in the Himalayas in February 2008, assisting project leaders, award winning filmmaker Liesl Clark, and North Face athlete and Everest climber Pete Athans, fortify and enhance the first Magic Yeti Library located at the Sir Edmund Hillary School in the village of Khumjung in the foothills of Mt. Everest.

Magic Yeti Children's Library Project
High in the Khumbu Valley in the foothills of Mt. Everest and into the remote villages of Upper Mustang young eager minds await. They are hungry for information that will add fuel to their imagination and enthusiasm for learning. They already have the intention, the spirit and the desire, now they just need the tools!
The Magic Yeti Children's Library Project is a joyful celebration and acknowledgement of how divine and powerful our minds can be when properly educated with reading and writing. Those of us fortunate enough to have grown up with at the very least a high school education, have all experienced the absolute delight in reading something that made us laugh out loud, sigh with relief or on the other hand hide under the covers while our imagination ran wild! It's funny what words in a book can "make" you do! Where would you be in life without knowing how to read? Where would you be without bookstores and libraries, teachers and schools? Think about it...
EMPOWER A CHILD $100.00 AND UP
Each time you donate $100.00 you forever alter the lives of 6 children! Allowing us to take powerful and immediate action to construct and stock libraries in existing schools located in remote villages throughout Nepal. The more libraries that take flight, the more children we reach and therefore generations to come! An educated adult will pass the torch onto their children, lighting up a whole village and an entire country.
380-400 students attend the Sir Edmund Hillary School. They attend class 5 and a half days per week from February to December. They learn to read and write in Nepali, Tibetan, and English from their dedicated teachers. With a full time librarian on board, who has training in library and computer skills, students can access far more than what their government issues text books allow, creating even greater future opportunities!
Hidden away in the remote Himalayan villages of Nepal are young pilots, doctors, engineers, educators, scientists, business leaders and political visionaries. They trek up to two hours just to attend class in cold, crowded and materially sparse classrooms. They take no notice as they are busy raising their hands, answering questions, and smiling with an attitude that goes well beyond "positive". They WANT an education!
