Who is Livability International anyway?

Over the past few years, I have talked a lot about Livability International’s Stephen & Maggie Muldoon, and their work over the past 20 years in South East Asia, building capacity at the many organizations they have partnered closely with.

Their dedication and extensive work for those with SCI was recognized by their nomination for the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, the winner will be announced this Fall.

It was through my work at SIRC that I was really fortunate to meet Stephen & Maggie, and in the past year worked with them closely during the aftermath of last year’s devastating earthquakes in Nepal.  I have learned so much from them both, and am in awe with all they do.  They are deeply loved and cherished by the folk at SIRC, it’s not hard to see why.

Here’s a short 2-minute video featuring Stephen describing why their work overseas is so important.

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
