I am once again deeply touched, inspired & encouraged by witnessing the empowerment that has unfolded the past 13 years with our women friends involved in microcredit and skills development in Chitwan, Nepal. Today (Nov 16) I was gifted a "Token of Love" at the annual general meeting of our microcredit cooperative - which illuminates my understanding of what has…
Our Annapurna Children Home Home teenage movie team have written, acted, filmed and directed this short film - for those who do not understand Nepali language the story is about finding your inner strength and finding out that getting angry and trying to beat the other means you lose your inner peace and power so the best is to be…
Tihar is a wonderful and special festival in Nepal.

De prijzen van bouwmaterialen, land, levensmiddelen en school…
A wee glimpse into everyday life at our Bhaktapur Children Home on a Saturday, haircuts for the boys, a visit to the nearby Temple, some rice paddy planting and then hanging out talking and laughing and generally enjoying being together in our big family all together. We do things that any other Nepali family will be doing – simply we…
We are delighted that we have new beds – we did have to paint and repair but the basic structures are solid wood and good quality. Plus we now have all new mattresses and sheets and blankets.

First day back at school for 2075 (Nepali year!) for most of our children - our youngest two and our children above class 10 all start back on Sunday. Today was a flurry of getting prepared, finding ties and socks but finally everyone was ready and Sarada gave everyone a blessings and reminder to utilise the school time well this…
