Giving Back

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Shree PokharaThe Back Story

In 2014 I was lucky enough to lead a group of seventeen women from all over the world to Annapurna Base Camp.   Seeing an opportunity to give back to Nepal I looked for a community we could contact, connect with and help.  I was given the name of two organizations.  One was Shree Pokhara Viewpoint School.  The other was Dhurba Tara Women’s Group. After some discussion as to how we could best help the community and the women in it it was decided that we would help to finish the roof on the school.  While there I met with the women of Dhurba Tara.

That was the beginning of a friendship and a commitment to action. I have since done whatever was in my power to bring this community what they most needed to grow and thrive.  There is a beautiful place in my heart for the school, the women and the people I have come to love.

Education has become an important part of this community’s identity.  Children and families have learned to value the opportunities that education affords.  When children get up in the morning and put on a clean uniform, carry their own book bag with books and supplies to school they are empowered to change their circumstances.  There is the possibility of something more… something different.  The motivations infused into their lives because of a gift like this has far-reaching potential. The 21 Day Fitness Challenge has provided this gift.

The women have completed three projects with me; a community goat project, a women’s sewing tutelage project and a tomato garden project and they all have been very successful.  A portion of all proceeds from all projects continue to generate income into the community.
