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 the Aniko Sansar Ko Sathi organization. Watch: https://youtu.be/xeYmowaeCwU

My time at Aniko with Prasha, his family and the kids was amazing, I felt at home with them, they are all very kind. During mornings and evenings you hang out with the kids and help with their homework, during the day when they are in school you are free to visit Pokhara (a great city with many coffees and nice shops about 30min walk from their place). I would recommend to anyone to do this experience, it is great! Thank you for everything and I hope to return someday to see you all 😁

It felt like staying with my own family. The kids are so smart and full of energy. Plenty of things to do in the city and I was always learning something new about the culture. I definetly recommend you to meet them if you really want to live a beautiful experience. Never ending peace and love.

it was a great experience. the kids have an awesome energy, they are always smiling, happy to see you and willing to learn. the NGO does an amazing job supporting lots of children around Nepal. Make sure that you get to know more about their work with other children throughout the country too. I was treated like a member of the family and they serve the best Dal Baht in Nepal :) it is a good way to immerse in the Nepali culture.
The place is not far away from the nice cafes and restaurants in Pokhara, so there is plenty to do on your time off. I definitely recommend 💜
thank you Aniko!
