Light weights



The people of Finland have come up with a unique scheme to help teacher training in Nepal and stay healthy at the same time. They don't have to raise money any more; all they need to do is lose weight, and an anonymous donor will donate 15 euros for every kilo shed. The project, announced in January, will continue until it raises 10 million euros. Finns wishing to take part have to go to designated weighing centres and once the kilos lost are certified, the donor will donate money to Nepal. The project is being managed by the group THL and the collected money will be handed over to Nepal by the Finnish Foreign Ministry. The scheme was kicked off in January by none other than Finland's Minister for Foreign Trade and Development, Paavo Väyrynen. But we won't know how much weight he has lost until May.
