The fact that human beings are complex living beings demands that their body and mind be catered to during any medical visit or camp. This very fact guided us to organize a one-day multi-disciplinary medical visit at Srijanshil rehabilitation and special education school for the disabled located in Chandragiri. The school has almost 20 students with different yet unique needs, and most of them belong to a family of economically disadvantaged sections of society.
The water project that GFF Helps is supporting in Teneghare Kavre is one of the most ambitious one in that, if the project comes to fruition it can help each villager have their water needs satisfied without having the women to carry loads of water each morning and travel miles. The project will require involvement and support of the community stakeholders and the villagers to dig, build and establish water pipes in the village.

December 5th marks the International Volunteer Day and the theme “Together We Can Through Volunteering” fits rightly so. Having been in Kathmandu Valley for almost a year and witnessing the transition of Covid-19 phases has indeed been a humbling and enriching experience. The very process of all the volunteers of GFF Helps International coming together from various parts of the world and joining hands to create a difference in our own initiatives towards the country that we have volunteered has been a fulfilling experience.
GFF HELPS has been visiting Srijanshil Rehabilitation and Special Education School for the Disabled and working closely with the children. Through the method of storytelling, children with disability were engaged in creative sessions like painting, dancing, music and film screening.
