Community Gathers For Feve Meal Dedicated to Nepali Support

Vida Weisblum, Editor-in-Chief

Patrons enjoy Nepali food on the first floor of the Feve as part of a fundraiser led by Students United for Nepal. Participants enjoyed Nepali music and meals Tuesday from 9–11 p.m. in an effort to raise money to build classrooms in Nepal. A portion of each guest’s bill was donated to Nepal’s first free private school, Maya Universe Academy. The event comes in response to a visit home to Nepal by Oberlin Shansi fellow and College sophomore Bikalpa Baniya, who volunteered at Shighadevi Secondary School located in the rural Sindhupalchowk District after the devastating 2015 earthquake that killed 8,000 people. After bearing witness to the immense destruction, Baniya hoped to raise awareness of difficulties faced by Nepalese students today.
