This is my friend Jenny Chen. She is a nurse practioner in New York City in the midst of Covid19. The other photo is her in November at the community health post volunteering in Bardia Nepal. This is a human being who is giving to the world. Any condition any moment. Let us celebrate these magnificent human beings around the world.
Thank you Jenny for being such an inspiration. ❤️🙏🏻 ... See MoreSee Less
What do you know that they don’t?
What we have noticed, perhaps you have too, is that there is a great deal of generosity around the world right now. Lots of people giving away resources for free. Although at this moment our kids in Bardia are not at school, they continue to be hungry to learn. So what we ask is, as many families in Nepal, certainly not all, but many, have at least one mobile phone in the family . As everyone is at home together right now, this is a great time for them to be able to access internet and access these resources.
If you have any great links of resources suitable for kids from ages 3-17 then please post them here in the comments of this post as a resource for them all. Please put a small description if it is not obvious so that they can know which are relevant.
Thank you so much. Right now this will be a fantastic help.

Do projects together such as filming a movie about your family or learning to cook a three course meal. Share stories about your childhood and teach them games you enjoyed as a kid. Create some routine by setting a simple daily timetable with a mix of learning, play, family and free time.
It is true that all the borders are closed and all the schools are closed in Nepal right now. Our builders are actually feeling more relaxed as they can spread out, not worrying about students passage through the school, as they build and get the library and technology block up... the progress is like fresh air in the midst of all the craziness.

I had t-shirts printed in Nepal for Bright Futures of Bardia not that long ago... and on the back I put a quote...
“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have."
The world is all over the place right now... remember not to give up on your dreams and remember the people who needed your support before this huge shift in the world, still meet you now, even more.
Stay connected... even if you reduce what you give, please keep giving nonetheless, as the whole world needs to join forces for this one.
Today this amazing team of humans tuned in to continue to work on our project.
I am blessed and honoured to be a part of this journey. Thank you all. ❤️🙏🏻 ... See MoreSee Less
