TRAVEL TO NEPAL
Join Me in Nepal
Each year in the Autumn, we travel to Nepal to see our children and provide oversight for our programs supporting severely underprivileged children. We invite sponsors and friends to see first-hand the difference they have made to our children. Nepal is a culturally rich country with incredible beauty, diverse religious traditions, amazing art and architecture, and of course, the Himalayas. We hope you can join me this year or next.

Overview of Annual Trip
Our trip is roughly two weeks in duration plus travel time. It is a combination of cultural tours, meeting friends, spending time with the children, seeing how our programs operate, and generally experiencing life in Nepal.
We will stay in moderate priced Nepali hotels and have a three-day excursion into the Pokhara or Chitwan regions with day hiking. We will meet the children living at and studying in boarding schools, the Contact Center, and local schools. We will also visit a few children living at home, meet parents and guardians, and our team in Nepal and take the children on at least one field trip too for fun.
Approximate cost of the trip (depending on airfare) is generally $3,500 per person. This covers airfare, hotels with breakfast included, ground transfers, tours, and admission tickets.
Other meals, independent taxi rides, tips, and souvenirs are not included and will be paid in Nepali rupees. Current exchange rate example is 100 Rs = $1.00. Average taxi costs 300-400 Rs or $3-4 USD.
Who Can Go on This Trip?
This trip is appropriate for anyone with good health and the ability to walk on day trips and hikes. There is no rigorous, high elevation trekking.
