The Experience

Namaste! I'm Prashna. I work as a social worker here in Pokhara. As a child I did not have many opportunities and been raised in an orphanage made the difference in my life. Due to the kindness that was shown to me, I wanted to give back to my community and help children in the same situation, giving them a chance to have a different life. For this reason, I started this organization

I stayed at Prashna's and Guita's house for 40 days and the experience will stay with me for my whole life. The children there are everything, and I left the house with all of the kids calling me “bhināju”(brother in law). I did many meaningful things with Prashna and his family such as an extremely successful go fund me project with Prashna that outfitted an entire village with sleeping supplies. That project would not have been possible without Prashna who coordinated the entire project. I experienced many parts of Nepali life from a traditional wedding, to local wine called raksi.

I stayed at Prashna's place for 3 weeks, and it was amazing. i got to know this family and children, learned some nepali, met incredible volunteers (Jeff, Johna and Caleb), and learned some things about myself as well. I got everything that was promised (and even more) and i did my best to give this family and children all the love and appreciation that i have. My days, from morning till night were filled with love, joy and kindness. I definitely will come again to see children, to see this big and happy family. Prashna is a great man with big heart, i was really honoured to get to know him

I have loved my time at the organization, and what was suppose to be a two week stay has turned into a much longer one. The huge family here is very warm and welcoming, and Prashna has been very good at making sure I have everything to be comfortable. The kids are fantastic - intelligent and friendly. It is a lot of fun to help with homework as well and play and chat with them. There is also much spare time to explore Pokhara. Food is delicious. I recommend this place to all travellers. A big thank you to Prashna, all the kids and adults at the organization, and the other volunteers I shared my time here with.

Dear Geoff Namaste

Thank you very much.

Each day of my two weeks provided me more than I could ever imagine. Early on, Prashna welcomed me the first night, ensured I was comfortable in the private room, and explained the setup of his organization. Then, he connected me with the children at the orphanage, particularly, the five teenage guys. Each morning, as was my duty, I assisted the children with their homework prior to school, ate breakfast with the guys, then awaited their return from school. Between playing sports, eating well, and learning about the culture from the people at the organization, I become very comfortable; you will too!

Life in the family was a great experience the most normal activities at home gave us joy thanks to the atmosphere and the people who were there. After spending time there you slowly feel like you have lived there for a long time. Children make your day better and better. Staying there taught us Nepali cultures as much as possible. I highly recommend this experience that I will remember forever
