Next Educational Trip to Nepal is being planned for May 2019
Namaste!!! Well plans are underway for our next educational mission trip to Nepal. We are planning to all meet in May in Kathmandu to prepare for the trip to the rural mountainous regions to volunteer in the schools and communities of these small villages. A cluster of young teachers from the University of Iowa beginning their teaching career along with their mentors are scheduled to meet me in KTM in early May. They have been preparing for this intercultural journey for several months….thinking, planning, creating lesson plans, organizing supplies, preparing for the trip of their lifetime. The benefactor: Those young Nepalese children. And while we are there we will be hosting the Nepal Art Festival. We are inviting as many schools as we can to get the word out that we will host a display of student art in KTM on May 23rd at Manasalu Public School. We will be fortunate to have a representative from the University of Iowa Art Department along to help coordinate this Nepal Art Festival. Please encourage any and all students of Nepal to create their art and have it delivered to KTM. Email me for further information or check my Facebook Page. We are still collecting much needed funds to support the projects in Nepal as well as needed supplies.
