2006 saw growth in the number of supporters outside the UK due to technology changes, and a corresponding growth of income.
Due to the increased income, Himalayan Learning enlarged the number of children it supported and tripled the number of schools that we give help to.
Projects were altered so that they specifically aimed to help women and girls, with a target of 2 in every 3 beneficaries being female.
Himalayan Learning also launched a new sponsorship scheme to raise the minimum sponsorship from £7 to £20 and to include a broader range of support to enable children to go to school.
The following chart shows how Himalayan Learning spent the income from sponsorships, and does not include other programmes.
