Buddha’s Smile School has a new YELLOW school bus, thanks to it’s many friends in Mouvaux, France and the Netherlands.
Thanks to Patrizia de Chiara, Do Radius and all our friends at the French NGO Humanyterre in Mouvaux who raised 15000 Euros through their membership, and with gifts from ISE corporation and many artists and other individuals on their social networks list.
The St. Roch Kindergarten, Mouvaux, France, held a picnic which raised 750 Euros for the bus and the Board and Employees Council of the Dutch broadcasting corporation BNN-VARA awarded BSS a Labour Day Gift of 2500 Euros toward the new bus, thanks to a proposal submitted to them by Mrs. Monique Rutter.
We also want to thank Humanyterre and Hyt who paid for repairs to our old school bus. Now we’ll have two fully-operational and safe buses for transporting the 220 children to and from school each day.
Funds for the original bus purchase were donated in 2007 by Geir and Ase Davidson and the many school children, friends and businesses of Etne, Norway who continue to support BSS by helping provide daily meals for the children.
