Solidarity Nepal Project 2016-17-18-19

At the end of March of 2016 I decided to fly to Nepal for the first time and spend some weeks to visit the country. Finally  the stay was extended to 90 days. I spent the most of the time on the highest peaks in the world, specifically in Muktinath, a small town for many tourists who trek the Annapurnas and also Hindu pilgrims who come to venerate his deity Vishnu in the temple located in this locality.

I was leaving at Dream Home Hotel where I met a local family who run the hotel with Maytreya, a Ukrainian man who rents this hotel.

There was a big mix of cultures and I was there,  a girl from Zaragoza who every day that passed was falling more and more in love with the country, with the local  people and the princess of the house, Pirti, the younger daughter of Palchom & Hanuman.

The Nepalese couple who helped in the hotel tasks in exchange for accommodation, food and a small salary. The connection with Pirti, her parents and  Maytreya grew older. Marta was not a  simple tourist but a foreigner who decided to stay on the highest peaks in the world for a while to have the experience of this life.

There were many and very intense experiences and learning that I took with me. In Nepal, most of the children who live in the mountains go to boarding schools from a very young age, since the nearest schools are long distances from their homes.  The mother of Pirti told me that they could not to pay the school  Pirti. Immediately I got to work and in less than a week I got 900 euros through a campaign in social networks.

It was really exciting to receive such support. At the beginning of this year we sent a second time 900 € to pay the new school year.

Last April I came back to Muktinath, to Dream Home Hotel and I spent 3 weeks living with them and also with Pirti, the princess of the house.

Again my heart was filled with great experiences and I was treated as one more member of the family.

Big Thanks to all the people who contributed with your little bit of sand in this project.
