We are sorting our luggage as we prepare to depart for 6 weeks in Nepal on March 4th. As usual we are bringing an assortment of computers, books, educational games, recreational equipment, and our own personal clothing and food. My hat goes off to John who gets the unenviable job of packing …… according to weight and bag limits. I hope we don’t have to leave anything important behind.

Board member Dave Monaghan and his wife, Terry, will accompany us and contribute significantly with prepared seminars for both the sponsored students and the teachers in Trishuli. We couldn’t do it without them.

We look forward to treating the students to pizza in a local restaurant

We'll be at the school for the end of their school year in March.

Thanks to a gift designated for dental care for the Foresight students, Nakul, who hopes to study for a degree in Public Health, negotiated a group rate at a local dental clinic. This week most of the sponsored students visited the dentist for a cleaning and exam with any needed followup work to be scheduled. This was the first opportunity for dental care in many, many years for most of the students, and the first time for some. We are so grateful for the care and generosity  of  donors.

Dental care to keep those smiles beautiful!
