After flying into Kathmandu Airport yesterday morning (25 March), our Grade 9 students went straight to Shree Mangal Dvip School where they are spending a few days volunteering. Yesterday they met some of the younger students. Today and tomorrow, they will be helping teach some English and maths, and doing a volunteer project in the school grounds, clearing a part of the school garden so that it can be used for growing vegetables.
