News Spotlight Are we doing it right? Effective meetings in Microsoft Teams

Since the Covid onslaught, businesses worldwide have adopted Microsoft Teams in place of meeting in person. And while it’s true that many of us are now adept with the software, it’s likely that others still use only the bits that suit them best. While we may get through the working day in one piece without some functionalities and etiquette, we could probably work better with the full toolset to hand. And why not? There’s still a long way to go before we’re all back in the office.

QEM Solutions Support Sherki Sherpa Appeal

QEM Solutions are proud to announce their Support for the Sherki Sherpa Appeal.

Ang Sherki Sherpa came to Moffat from Nepal when she was 11 years old and has now been here for over 7 years thanks to the support and assistance form the local community.

In her final year at Moffat Academy Sherki won the Jeff Brown Enterprise Award of £500, and decided to use the money to help fund a restoration and education project at her old village school in Kharikhola in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Planning to return to Nepal in early 2012 Sherki is raising money to try to improve the school and also to devote some time to teaching.

As a former student of Mera Primar, Sherpa understands the difficulties the children will face during their school career. The majority do not attend school as their parents cannot afford simple materials such as pens, pencils, jotters, etc. There is very little state funding and the school is unable to provide many basic essentials.

Currently the school has 60 regular students and 5 teachers. However by the end of this year 3 teachers will be made redundant as the school cannot afford to pay their salaries of £70 a month.

 The school building is also in a very poor condition:

  • Classrooms are damp with rotting wooden floors, desks and seating and there is no electricity, so no light or heating.
  • The water supply is inadequate and untreated. Cholera still exists in the area.
  • There is 1 toilet for 60+ mixed sex students
  • There are very limited basic educational resources such as textbooks, jotters, pens, pencils and play facilities.

Sherki feels extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity of a secondary education at Moffat Academy and strongly believes that a good education is the key to success in life.

Originally setting a target of £3000 Sherki plans to help her old school by raising money to repair and restore classrooms, provide basic equipment and fund extra teachers.

£1 = 100 Nepali Rupees = 1 jotter

£10 or 1000 rupees = basic materials for 1 student

£70 = 1 teacher’s monthly salary

With your support we can make a real difference to a child’s learning and life prospects.

QEM Solution’s joined forces with the local restaurant, The Limetree last weekend to hold a charity dinner and between us, managed to raise £1400 towards the appeal, bringing Sherki’s total to a staggering £3150. 

We will be following Sherki every step of her journey and will keep everyone updated on her progress and future support.  If you would like to know more or would like to assist in any way you can find regular updates here.

Good luck Sherki.
