There’s a great blog I follow written by a young lady names Laura Spero who first went to Nepal in 2002 as a volunteer teacher in the rural village of Kaskikot, just west of Pokhara. In 20014 she set up a NGO called Jevaia that establishes sustainable dental care in rural village in Nepal. Laura writes brilliant stories on life in rural Nepal and also writes short documentaries for PRI (Public Radio International – if you haven’t listened to their programming, then you are missing out bigtime!).
This 5-minute clip peaked my interest, as it tells the harsh realities of the many young Nepali men moving abroad for work, and the impact it has on those left behind. This story also tells of the this new generation of Nepalis balances cultures and traditions with the modern world.
Hope you enjoy.
