Update from Nepal :: June 11



We spent our first week in a mountain village in Chandi Bhanjhang in the Chitwan district of Nepal. The village is isolated, no roads in and out, just a 2 hour (3 hour for us!) hike up a mountain trail. There was no plumbing and only one fresh water source for the entire village. No refrigeration and limited solar electricity. Our efforts were spent with teachers from three area schools. We observed and learned about their teaching processes and also demonstrated western teaching methods designed to engage the children. We noticed marked changes in the teachers over the course of the week and in the children’s interaction with the teachers. It was very exciting for everyone. Our training was well received and the principal and villagers asked us back soon. My favorite part was getting to know the welcoming and warm people of the village. We quickly became part of the community, working with the children and teachers during the day, and sharing meals, stories,  and laughs in the evenings. 

This week we are with a village in the valley. The same village we visited last year.  Five schools coming together to share. We’ll write more later. Thank you for all the prayers.
