Movie night

Fundraising Movie Event – White Sun

What an amazing movie it was! Thank you so much for turning up and supporting our projects in Nepal. We raised just under $1000 and that is a great achievement.

Every Little Bit Helps

After Nepal was struck by the terrible earthquake in April 2015, some friends and I gathered together at my house for an afternoon tea. We all provided a plate to share and made donations for Friends of Nepal.

Play Therapy Workshop held in Kathmandu

In February 2016 the first child-centred play therapy training course was held in Nepal. People who remember “Dibs in Search of Self” by Virginia Axline will understand the power of play therapy to transform the lives of children who have been traumatized.
