Adventure is where we discover ourselves.
Len and Matt leave for Nepal mid October taking a group for a photo tour of Kathmandu and then doing a two week trek.
As part of this "Walk on the Wild Side" tour, the group will visit IGWR Nepal and have an opportunity to see what is being achieved; so we're looking forward to some great photos of the Kids later in the month.
The tour has been arranged so that any profit from the expedition will be a donation to IGWR. From past experience with 'tour groups', we delight in the response that the team in Nepal receive.
Last year a group of Senior high school students, who had trekked to Everest Base Camp, visited our House 1 for an afternoon of interaction with the children. Many of them remarked that it was even more rewarding than their trip to Everest .
What is so inspiring
For me, and my involvement with IGWR, there has been an awakening of the inner soul that is our truest being; and when I hear from visitors that they too discover something within themselves when they visit us in Nepal, I'm delighted that this experience is both real and also a sign of our common humanity.
Away from the day-to-day pattern of life and being a stranger in another culture asks something of us, and that ask can lead to wonderful discoveries.
