2014: A Year in Review in Nepal

2014 has been a busy year for the projects in Nepal with numerous developments taking place, take a look at what has been achieved below:

  • A new house and additional farmland was added this year adjacent to the current farm and in now home to several women and their children.
  • More women are employed at the farm now
  • 40 or more children come daily for help with homework, English lessons and computer lessons. Before the installation of the video lab the children in this village had never seen nor used a computer before.
  • Almost 200 people have volunteered on various projects at the farm this year
  • The farm is women owned and operated. By local standards the farm is very large and none of the locals would have believed that a group of 12-15 young women would be able to manage it. This in itself is a great achievement for the women you manage and work on the farm in addition to supporting all volunteers, cooking all meals and many also attend college. One of the women is in the final months of nursing school!
The project has achieved so much in the past 12 months and we’re looking forward to working with them again in 2015.
