The first week of work back in Nepal is finished. Together with volunteer Gert Groenewoud we donated school materials to 6 schools in SoluKhumbu district.
- We visited two dalit communities to handover clothing.
- We donated a greenhouse to a small undeveloped school. Together with the teachers we made the greenhouse and handed over a course book and seeds.
It was a tight schedule with finishing our days walking in dark to reach our destination and achieve our goals.
Text by volunteer Gert Groenewoud:
At the beginning of 2016 I started to make the plans to join Micro-Care Nepal.
Micro-Care Nepal is a NGO that was started April 2015 directly after the eathquake that hit the Nepali in the heart. During and after this earthquake around 8000 people got killed. Any people lost their houses. Now still people are living in tents trying to make the best of what is left in their life. Some children lost both of their parents and still they keep going on. We believe that we can not change the world just by ourselves but we believe in small projects with that can have a big impact in people's lives. Our projects should make more development possible also in the future and even without us.
"I am proud to be part of this team. In my first week we were able to help 6 schools in the SoluKhumbu district with educational material. We made a collaboration between the local communities and schools. Together we build greenhouses and distributed clothing for the lower cast (Dalits)."
"This first week of work for Micro-Cer Nepal really struck me!"
Next week Micro-Care Nepal will continue his projects in Gorkha district, visiting Muchu Khola, Uiya, Korla, Korla besi, Singla and Laprak. We will distribute clothing and support schools. Our goal is to improving education, introduce waste management which is one of the overal problems in Nepal, we will talk about the nutrition and the necessity of eating more varieties of food.
Small projects, but we strongly believe small projects can have juge impact on the lives of people. If we can motivate and guide them to development then they will continue and pass things on to the people surrounding them.
