Sindulpalchok district

For a moment imagine your home, & most of your neighbors homes have just crumbled & collapsed. As you look across the valley you see the same picture. Electricity & communications have stop working & you see friends, family who are injured, some seriously. You have no idea when help may arrive or even if any will.

News Update Bhaktapur Self-sustaining Children home

Written by Kira Kay on .

The children have just left for school on the bus, Riya and one of the mothers are out looking at different rice-hay as we need to buy some for the cows ... and I have a few minutes here to write a few sentences and updates.

It seems as if another evolution has occurred here at Sidapol, leaving an overall feeling of maturity, harmony and depth. We now have two new live-in mothers to be a support for Jamnua. Parvati came from Pokhara and Moiya from the village of Rupak's mother. Plus we have Devi who comes by during the day each day to help with daily tasks.

Back in Nepal

Written by Kira Kay on .

I am thoroughly enjoying being back in Nepal once again and having the opportunity to visit various projects plus enjoy being in this beautiful country. The politics have not progressed much, so unfortunately the government leadership and initiatives remain stagnant and consequent economics and infrastructure limited. The country is however safe to visit in my opinion for those of you…
