Dear members,

I hope this email finds you well. On behalf of the SEHF board, I am pleased to inform you that we are launching a brand-new ZOC School Newsletter in the coming weeks. This seasonal publication will showcase descriptive photos, fun events, and students’ activities at the Zeke O’Connor High School in Phaplu, Nepal.

This initiative is a school project supported by our Foundation and ZOC High School administrators and will be strictly featuring the wor

k of the student body’s budding amateur photographers and writers. The goal is to inform and connect you to the ZOC school and its students, while at the same time encourage the creative and educational values of our partnership.

I thank all of you for your continued support of the Zeke O’Connor High School and trust, whether you are able to sponsor a child or not, you will enjoy the excitement of watching these children throughout their educational journeys.

I also want to thank all of you who participated in our virtual culinary event ‘Night IN for Nepal’ held on April 10. Congratulations to our Next Generation committee, including co-chairs Justin von Etzdorf, and Susie McElhinney, who all put in so much time and effort to pull it off. Much appreciation to our incredible sponsors, generous donors and many others who helped make this a very special event. It was delicious, fun, and best of all a very successful evening for the ZOC School!

Stay tuned and stay safe.


Karen O’Connor
