She came to Nepal around 11 am on January and she went sightseeing to Boudhanath Stupa along with our program manager Ishwor Shrestha. Likewise, she had a meeting on future plans to grow ahead of the projects of the Volunteer Society Nepal with the founder of the Volunteer Society Nepal, Tej Shrestha. She enjoyed delicious supper at Tej’s home. The next day after spending relaxed sleep; she visited the New Life Children’s Home and Career Building International Academy with Ishwor. She met the children who enjoyed the lunch prepared by the kids of NLCH and had a talk with them. Furthermore, she met with the principle and talked with him about the school. On the same day evening, she took a flight to Australia.

Here is what she has to say about her visit “Such a warm welcome during my first visit to Nepal for the Volunteer Society Nepal. Homestays with Tej and Rupa, guided tours by Ishwor and lunch made by Sabina and her siblings at the children’s home. Similarly, many cups of tea while meeting other inspiring people, all working for greater education to change the future”.

Her thoughts

She thinks; it’s important that all children get the chance to grow up safely and to develop. No matter where their cradle stands.

Her plans

Previously, she planned to come to Nepal with Ruud, but due to unfortunate circumstances, she was not able to come. This time she visited two projects and she will be coming again in February and will be visiting the project in Banepa as well. Furthermore, she will be organizing career counseling classes for the students of CBIA.
