With such a busy Spring and 5 volunteers in total spending time in Gorkha through GDS, the latest issue of our Newsletter focuses on the work they have been doing and the important role they play working with the Gorkha community and contributions made.
So, enjoy reading and get in touch if you too are interested in volunteering in Nepal.
Gorkha Womens Association organise the volunteer homestay, plan and undertake the childrens hygiene in school and the woments health programme. This time THEY benefited from the womens hygiene programme themselves when a Doctor from Gorkha helped them understand specific issues for both younger and older women. excellent discussion was held an dreally showed the value of this programme and no doubt more will be organised for rural women in the future.
Volunteers Naomi, Linda, Trish and Fiona were all present to see the programme
A wonderful general assembly for the Gorkha Women’s Association (GWA) in Raniban, Gorkha. A lovely programme with cooking in the forest, dancing and a meeting to discuss this years programmes.
Lots of good ideas from the women for what they would like to do in the future to include womens health programmes and childrens hygiene, both projects funded by GDS.
Many beautiful colours and people!
