Nepal Education Fund

Arrived in Nepal Monday night and then flew to Pokhara yesterday, Tuesday.  Met up with Jeff, the dentist and his friend Ivan.  Today we went to the Kristi school for a dental camp.  It was a very successful day and Jeff worked from 10 am to 5 pm.

Last November the Watkin family visited here with us and they offered to paint the school and pay for some desks.  They had previously fundraised with the Pollock family, also from Duncan, to help rebuild the school which is now completed.  The painting looked great and made the classrooms so much brighter.
Mann and I also went further up the mountain by motorbike on a road which really was a steep rocky trail to see another poor little primary school which needs some help.  These children are really adorable and I enjoyed sitting with them, taking their photos and showing them.  They are always delighted to see themselves on the camera. 
I did not stay the whole day at the school as I was tired from travelling so came back and had a sleep.  Jeff said it was a very successful day though and that the organization was good.  They saw about 100 people who had never seen a dentist before.
