Highlights of summer in Nepal '13

I can't believe it is already time for me to leave PoD Nepal, after (the fastest) 6 weeks. 

It has been an absolute privilege to be given the opportunity to return to Nepal and see the invaluable work that PoD continues to do with the most deserving of children!

It has been a pleasure to welcome such hardworking, enthusiastic and talented volunteers and support them throughout their time here.

A summer in Nepal, however, is never all work and no play and am pleased to say I have had also had lots of fun!

Thought my last blog could show a few of my highlights from the last 6 weeks!

2. We are very lucky in Nepal that we are all welcomed into Bindu's family and made to feel like part of the family. Volunteers often comment on how "home like" their stay has been.

3. My main highlight: the incredible children we work with in a variety of different placements, who never fail to amaze me with their optimism, personalities and ability to cope with adversity.
