Drinking for a cause
Jan 29, 2016-
For the tea-loving denizen of Kathmandu, who just needs another excuse to sip on their favourite brew, the Jhamsikhel-based BG Tea Bar—the Capital’s first tea bar—will be hosting an event, titled Drink for a Cause, today at 5pm.
Musician Rohit John Chettri will be performing an acoustic set at the event.
BG Tea Bar serves over 20 different blends of organic teas from Kanchanjangha Tea Estate (KTE), which employs over 600 farmers.
The proceeds from the event will go towards a scholarship fund which currently provides free education to 96 children in nine different schools in eastern Nepal, including Naya Namuna Madhyamik Vidyalaya, Kalika Madhyamik Vidhyalaya, Arniko Boarding School among others. The KTE scholarship programme, which was initiated in 2002, has provided scholarships to over 2300 students.
