Friends - as many of you know, April 2007 I spent two weeks in Nepal, trekking in the Himalayas and visiting some charitable projects that my dear friend Kira Kay had helped to initiate. She has set-up multiple different projects in Nepal over the past few years, including Microfinance in remote villages, self-sustaining children's homes, and work with schools and hospitals.
Nepal has been an unforgettable, deeply touching and life changing experience. I still feel moved by the heart warming and honest nature of the people, the stunning nature and silent magic of the Himalayas and the colourfulness and richness I have experienced in Nepal. I came to visit my friend Kira and her projects and to do a trek together with a group of friends from all over the world. The tour started with a warm welcome of Kiraʼs Nepali friends in the buzzing city of Kathmandu and took us to Pokhara, where we spent a wonderful afternoon playing with the children in Self-sustaining Orphan Home.
My stay in Nepal, 2011
Nepal - for many, the first associations are Mount Everest, Yeti, and poverty. I was one of them, and I was curious to find out what the country really is like. Not only this was my motivation to join hands with hands, but also the opportunity to do good and help people who do not have the same privileges as we do.
