THE STORY:

As the founder of The Trek of Your Life, I organize voluntourism trips to Nepal. Over the last few years these trips have focused on volunteering at the Dadaguan Village school and orphanage located in the foothills surrounding Kathmandu. We collaborate with others involved with the school since 2007. Our project is unique because my business partners in Nepal live near the village and monitor our programs to insure funds and contributions are handled as intended. Through this program The Trek of Your Life volunteers have:

  • Equipped a computer room
  • Made donations to the scholarship fund for 3 children to attend high school
  • Donated 7 Computers for use by the teachers and school children
  • Purchased school supplies, such as origami balls, pencils, laminated posters, flash cards, English speaking teaching props
  • Provided in service training in accounting, parenting skills, and support for the teachers
  • Worked closely with Steve’s wife Neeru to bridge cultural and communication gaps

When I was in Nepal last year the children in Dadagaun Village were practicing Justin Bieber songs and dancing like him. It occurred to me that they might start to devalue Nepalese culture as they are exposed to more international travelers. So this year I am taking another group to Nepal to set up a program using Nepalese music and dance to enhance the school curriculum as well as  improve academic  performance. With your help, these talented bright children will learn that Nepalese music, dance and art, developed through centuries, has value. We will begin this year to lay the groundwork so the Nepalese can become the stewards of the program and spread the pride in their musical traditions.


Your generous contribution will help us buy: 

  • 10 sarnagis (fiddles) $25 each 
  • 10 bansuri (flutes) $10 each 
  • 10 madal (drums) $20 each 
  • 10 morchunga (harps) $5 each 
  • $650-salary for a Nepalese musican to visit Dadaguan Village School twice a month for one year
