Sponsor trip to Nepal November 4 through 21, 2019
We are really excited to be able to offer two options this year for our side trip outside of the Kathmandu Valley to Pokhara. We will all fly roundtrip from Kathmandu to Pokhara together. One option in Pokhara is to explore the resort town, enjoy Phewa lake, take day hikes and overnight at a resort in the mountains. The second option is to a 2-day easy hike in low elevations near Pokhara, which includes spectacular views of the Himalayas and overnight in a trekking lodge. We will all do some sightseeing in Kathmandu too.
The major part of the trip is focused on our Mitrata supported programs in Nepal, spending time with the children in various settings, visiting the Contact Center, and learning about life in Nepal. Every year we also have a special project and a field trip (such as picnic, fun park etc) and a wonderful graduation program. We make every effort to be sure you have time with your sponsored child as that is so important to everyone. If this is not your first trip with us, we will continue to schedule new experiences for you. We also leave time for free exploration and shopping.
If you are interested in this year’s trip, please let me know as soon as possible even if you are not sure. Send in these documents with the authorization from your credit card of the initial deposit of $500 per person. We are asking you to pre-fill the attached payment form authorizing Mitrata to process your payments in line with our deadlines listed on the registration form. After you sign up and send the information, I will contact you about booking your travel arrangements through Peaceland Travels our airline agent. Note that your airline cost is separate from the trip cost and paid separately as well.
Feel free to contact me anytime concerning the trip with questions or concerns that you may have. We strive to help make you comfortable on the trip exploring a new culture. Once we have our group established, I will set up several dates for meetings in person or by remote (for those out of town) so that I can address questions and we can plan details. Note that the itinerary is incomplete for dates with the children as it is too early to be sure about their schooling and exams. Saturday is the day they are off school so we will plan extensive activities with them on Saturdays.
Attached you will find the following documents about the trip:
It is important that you get all of this information with a $500 per person deposit back to me by Friday March 29th. You can mail or scan and email the information to me. Be sure to get going on securing your passport and inoculations.
I am so looking forward to this trip with you!
