Nepal Expedition


Phase 2 has gone by even faster then the first phase and our first 7 weekers have now left us. We want to thank our 7 weekers for all their hard work and their effort to make this expedition happen. The rest of the venturers have been allocated again and deployed to their final phase, the phase which will end their Raleigh expedition.

Nepal ICS

Last Sunday the 6th of August was an exiting day for the Raleigh Nepal Country Office. Why? Because after days of practicing, Raleigh Nepal's football team could finally show off their skills on the Futsal Tournament in Kathmandu. With the International Youth day in the nearby future, 16 local and international organisations came together for a football tournament to celebrate this special day.

Showing off the seven steps to good handwashing

One of the key parts of our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programmes is using fun, interactive workshops to encourage new behaviours for safe and healthy hygiene practices. In Quireni our volunteers have been facilitating an educational hygiene and sanitation session for local children. Here they explain a little about their teaching, and their learning.

Dimitri from BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA

This summer two of our volunteer managers came on expedition from BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA. Leila and Dimitri worked in the communities Quireni and Gaucharan in the Gorka district, where they and their Raleigh teams were implementing WASH projects funded by BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA. Dimitri talks about the impact his time with Raleigh has had on him.

5 weeks has already flown by and our group for the Raleigh Nepal summer expedition 17J has already left us.
At their endex, their end of expedition, they got one last chance to share their stories with one and another before it was really time to leave Nepal, or perhaps for some others to discover Nepal even more by travelling further.

Sharing photos with children in Quireni

Arriving into the community of Quireni was a daunting experience for many reasons, but the language barrier was one of the most intimidating things at first.

It's already been two weeks since NE5 and NE4 were deployed to the communities of Quireni (NE5) and Gaucharan (NE4), situated in the Gorkha district. The groups are working on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) projects, funded by BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA. Two employees of BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA, Dimitri and Leila are participating as Volunteer Managers. This blog will shed more light on the purpose of these projects, and especially why they are so important for Quireni and for Gaucharan.
