VOLUNTEERS STORIES

My Nepal Story

By Clay Mason

In the blink of an eye I was sandwiched between nearly 40% of the world’s population (China and India), as I stepped into another culture to learn about my own. This was no ordinary place or country, it was Nepal. I was walking on holy land where Buddha was born, and the world’s highest mountain peaks stand. A place where the  cow is sacred and often seen roaming the streets aimlessly, as if they were homeless gods. And this was just the beginning.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES IN NEPAL

By Philippe Topdjian

Going on The Asha Project’s annual Nepal trip was extremely eye opening to me. First and foremost, when stepping off the plane, you quickly realize how different Nepal is from every other country you’ve visited. It’s different from India and China (even though they are neighbors). 

Passion into Action: Humanitarian Mission to Nepal

By Ryan Zaborowski

So far, my trip to Nepal has been filled with long bus rides through the Himalayas and many Rotarian service projects and programs. One of these programs stands out the most to me however. Today, myself and the RVCC Rotaract Club along with the Rotaract Club of Ratnanagar visited a local Orphanage in Chitwan. We painted there recreation room with quotes and inspirational messages and then distributed blankets to every child there. 

My unforgettable experience in Nepal

By Lauren Wougk 

I never thought I would miss dust. But when I remember my last day in Kathmandu, racing down the streets on the back of a motorcycle with dust in my mouth, I miss everything about Nepal. Yes, even the dust. I remember the times riding in the back of a van, on roads so bumpy that my head would hit the ceiling and my stomach would be doing somersaults even after my feet were back on solid, not moving ground.
