Volunteering & Cultural Exchange Program – King George V School (Hong Kong) Group in Nuwakot (18th – 21st October 2008)

Posted Oct 24th, 2008 under Company News, Photo Essay, Special Events,

A group of  23 students and 4 teachers from King George V school arrived from Hong Kong for their Nepal visit. After arriving in Kathmandu, they left for Nuwakot, where they spent three days interacting with the schoolchildren of Bhairabi Higher Secondary School. Going through their pictures, it seems the group had a fun and enjoyable time. According to our office team, who had accompanied the group to Nuwakot, the children expressed their admiration for the folks of Nuwakot whom they felt, “were happy with so little, didn’t have enough but were so hospitable and welcoming.”

Now the group is on a trek to Everest Base Camp.

Some memorable moments from the trip, captured on film

  4. Many thanks to all who were involved in our outreach from Explore Himalaya, especially Sampurna who took wonderful photos, Nirmala who’s been most articulate and supportive, and also Surya who’s been an enlightening angel, Mr Dhakal who waited patiently to pick us up from Ktm airport from the helicoptor ride, Suris (Mr.Snake)who took us round Ktm sightseeing putting with a bunch of worn out kids who didn’t listen very well. (I found the history facinating!)and last but not least, that handsome guy who I regret to have forgotten the name who dashed like a superman with our passports before we left Ktm. You’ve been so helpful seeing us off at the airport. I hope I haven’t missed anyone, if so, I do apologise. Thanks for everything again! You have all made our trip a fantastic experience.

    - Joy
