Welcome to the December 2014 Guy's Trust newsletter. We are sending you this update because you have come to one of our events, sponsored one of our fundraisers, made a donation or just expressed an interest in what we are doing.
 
Guy's Trust is a charity established in memory of Guy Joseph, marine biologist, scuba instructor and adventurer who was tragically killed, aged twenty five, in a paragliding accident in 2011. The charity works on projects that reflects Guy's life, passions and the places in which he spent time.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our many supporters like you, we have built two early childhood centres and a library in Nepal and have funded twelve marine conservation internships at MantaWatch in Indonesia, an organisation that Guy co-founded which works to protect the endangered manta ray.

We are currently building a third school in Nepal and are raising funds to continue supporting the four communities there, for next year's MantaWatch internships and to build two primary schools in Cambodia.

We have just returned from Nepal where we saw first hand how the communities are benefiting from Guy's Trust's support and thought that you might like to see our photos.

We hope you'll enjoy this newsletter and will continue to follow the progress we are making in the countries that really need our help. Guy's Trust would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, to send you 'season's greetings' and wish you a happy new year.

With best wishes

Vicky Joseph  
Chair of Trustees



AN OVERWHELMING WELCOME IN NEPAL
Vicky and Tony Joseph, together with trustee Lynne Gilbert and a small group of friends have just returned from Nepal where they were honoured guests at the inauguration of the first two 'Guy Joseph Early Childhood Development Centres' and the Guy's Trust Library - moving, humbling and rewarding experiences, best described in pictures!
