My dream has been to bring art into the rural schools of Nepal through free workshops using local materials and recyclable items. The majority of schools in the rural areas do not offer any art classes or creative activities for the children, because of the lack of funds, equipment and the absence of teacher training. Unfortunately, many children never get the opportunity to develop their creativity.

I had done 2 trips before and am planning this time to go from middle October till around April. 

If anybody wants to join for a short or long period please do write me. I dont charge anything to arrange this, but only ask that you pay your own way and help with the collection of supplies you would need for the art/craft lessons each day.
I have some pictures on my Facebook page on the village Letang which is where I will be returning. It is about 13 hours from Kathmandu close to the Indian border.

Everybody will be responsible for setting up their own lessons, so a love for art/craft and children is required.
If you need any other information please do write me.
