The team spent a wonderful morning with the Deaf Women's Empowerment Group. These proud women craft lovely hand-embroidered greeting cards on Nepali paper and fabricate reusable sanitary napkin kits for young women who otherwise would not attend school during their period. Modern disposable napkins are not affordable for many.

The afternoon saw us reuniting with the Blind and Visually Impaired kids at their school. Vertical Nepal first met these kids at a climbing wall last year - it was great to spend time with them again. A special thanks goes out to Rob Rose and Nirmala for helping make this special day happen. The Rose International Fund for Children (TRIFC.org) Thank you for following along with us.We will be announcing a new challenging project out of Alaska soon. Stay posted via our Facebook and website for the latest news and updates! Cheers,
