Had some time the past few weeks to volunteer for a nonprofit here in Kathmandu under the name of Possible Nepal. The organization provides shelter to orphans and abandoned children and currently takes care of ten kids that are between the ages of nine and thirteen. Its been a cool and humbling experience spending time with them learning about what they’ve been through, getting a feel for Nepali culture on a daily basis, and teaching English courses at the local school they attend (I taught grades 5 and 6).
Whether it was a birthday celebration, throwing them a Christmas party, or simply hanging out and watching movies at the orphanage the holiday season in 2017 will easily be remembered for a few different reasons (especially the creepy mask that our “Santa Claus” wore on Christmas). Here’s a bunch of shots from both the orphanage and the school; I can’t take credit for all the pics as some were provided by the other volunteers.
Hope you guys kicked off the new year the right way. I’ll be staying in Nepal until the end of February, catch yall later!
