I've always been fascinated by the heavy lifting baskets used in Nepal. With a simple weave and a forehead strap, supplies can be carried to the most remote villages in the country - often days from the nearest road. When yours wears out, no trip to the dump or the mall is needed. #nepaljoy16#nepal#nepaliloveyou
A good school teaches you resilience - that ability to bounce back. -Kate Reardon
Seems like our nation itself has taught us resilience, that we carry it to our core on almost every aspect of our lives, from within family to society, from community to national level, and from there back to each one of us. .
@Regrann from @discoverychannel - From @renan_ozturk: "Thanks so much for following along with my stories, and thanks to #SherpaFilm for allowing me to share a bit of my experiences from the Everest region. As you know, Nepal recently suffered immensely from an earthquake and a number of aftershocks. The one ubiquitous message I would leave you is to consider the incredible and positive effect that traveling to Nepal and the Himalaya will have on you. To know Nepal is to love her. The majesty of her mountains inspires awe and a reassuring sense of perspective. The grace of her people floods your heart with the buoyant certainty that we are all kin. Together, we need to remind the world that in the wake Nepal's recent tragedy, her loveliness remains. Nepal urgently needs tourism to return, and she needs long-term financial support for reconstruction. For both, the world needs to see beyond the destruction.#NepaliLoveYou#SherpaFilm#HeroesOfTheHimalya"
In Gudel, community members are working hard on rebuilding Basuki Primary School-one of the 7 that we will be supporting reconstruction of, in 2017. In this photo, people are carrying stones to the construction site as part of voluntary labor contribution. The earthquake is almost 2 years ago, but there is still so much to work on, so much to repair and rebuild.
