From Our Volunteers | 4 April 2012
A high school group from Canada joined us this month for a work project on the women's cooperative farm project. This hard working group of kids first spent months fundraising at home in order to make a significant financial contribution that enabled us to purchase the land to start this farming project. Next, they traveled from Canada to Nepal and spent a week doing hard labor out at the farm site to help repair the existing house, add a room on to the house and prepare some of the land for crops. What an inspiration to young volunteers everywhere.
