The Hannah Memorial Academy is a primary school for under privileged children in a remote part of North East India and permanent memorial to the life of a young Southampton girl, Hannah Foster. The school is the vision of a local man, Jason Lepcha, who wanted to provide free education and a focal point for the local community in one of the poorest areas of Darjeeling.

To help Jason realise his dream and ensure the continuation of the school and vital services it provides to the local community, the Hannah Memorial Academy Charitable Trust was setup in 2008 by a group of UK based trustees. We hope you take some time to find out more about this great cause and we encourage you to learn about the various ways you can help.

Latest news – a new video recently made at the school, by Sean Lepcha, son of the founder Jason Lepcha, can be seen on our YouTube channel here.
