Bridge to Nepal
Service Team Trip--May/June 2010
Updated: Jul 25, 2019
Recently, a service team made the trip to Nepal. Here is a report of what they did and what their experience was like!
Our trip to Nepal in May-June 2010 included Natalie, Susanna, Marcus, Daniel, and Marian from America. Joining us from India were Duncan and Vasanti from Bangalore, and Sydney from Goa.
Susanna returned for her second May trip to Nepal. She and Natalie spent most of their time teaching in Grace School and PremNagar School and had a wonderful time with the children and teachers at both schools.
Daniel was there to follow up on medical needs, school needs, and microloans. He also spent some time in the village of ShivaNagar, another former slave community in Tikapur.
Duncan and Vasanti traveled on to Pokhara for a few days to serve there.
Marcus studied the economic needs of the communities, getting a baseline for the height and weight of the kids, along with their current levels of nutrition. His goal was to collect data and prepare for college interns to spend extended periods of time in Tikapur.
Sydney spent most of his time in the villages near Dhangarhi, getting the water systems working, installing pumps and the pipeline to Kichahi. A freak gust of wind had knocked out the roof and walls on the water treatment system installed the previous May in Khalladahe, so Sydney had to improvise solutions for that unit as well. By the end of the trip, the system at Khalladahe was operational and water was flowing through the Kichahi pipeline.
