Taliah & Kirsten, our two volunteers from Norway who are on a month long sojourn in Nuwakot Village, are making the most of their time involving themselves in community work and helping out villagers. According to them they begin their day with a walk downhill to the village’s dhunge dhara (traditional stone water spout) early in the morning to fetch water and to wash up.
While Taliah is busy teaching and assissting the local teachers at Shree Bhairabi Higher Secondary School, Kirsten is back from attending the wedding festivities and is now helping out at the village’s sole Health Post. She said that she is assissting the doctor in providing Physiotherapy to an old lady patient. Both of them agree that the villagers are quite helpful and cooperative and have gone out of their way in welcoming them.
