The multi-award winning Oakman Inns Group was founded in 2007 by entrepreneur and CEO Peter Borg-Neal. The vision behind it was simple: to create the perfect environment to come and enjoy great food and drink whilst catching up with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues. The company established a new concept of the ‘modern public house’ by successfully transforming both historic and modern buildings into contemporary spaces that have a strong sense of identity and integration within the local communities they serve. Oakman Inns now operates in over 40 locations, predominantly in the South East, and has a turnover in excess of £75m.
Oakman Inns has supported EYE Nepal with various fundraising events since our inception and we are hugely grateful for the continued support.
IYP (Island Youth Projects)
Established in early 2021, Island Youth Projects is an organisation founded by Paul Yearley and Josephine O’Neil and now has 15 active members across three countries.
In 2023 IYP partnered with EYE Nepal to actively be involved to create an after-school learning centre in a village close to Bandipur. In addition to fundraising, volunteers from IYP travelled to Nepal to assist in the development project. The learning centre, which was completed in April 2023, is open after school and during holiday times to support the children in the remote village of Khahare. The centre will also provide additional community based educational support for local children and their families.
The local community was involved with the process, through consultation and the involvement community volunteers who aided the development of the project. The original building was renovated to provide a safe and sustainable learning environment for the children in the local area.
To conclude the project, a Sports Day was also held for 150 children in grades 1 to 5, from Deurali, Dil Pra V and Bhanu Ma V, three schools in the local area, all of whom will be users of the after school learning centre.
‘It was not just the enthusiasm of the EYE team that attracted us to this project but rather EYE’s extraordinary track record of successful delivery of a sustainable educational programme that blends refurbishment of places of learning with funded teaching programmes across Nepal.’
Paul Yearley, Founder IYP, 2023
