Bubbles are great for building muscular strength in their mouths and also great for the lungs. It requires children to take deep breaths and to expel all the air they can!

Nepal 

Over the past year, the children and the parents at Monique's have been raising money to help rebuild the local primary school in Mamta's home village which was destroyed by the earthquakes in Nepal last year. Here you can see the development of the permanent school rebuild, as well as the temporary strucure being used by the school children.
