Teeth and Toilets in Nepal Explore New Horizons

News on TT explore new horizons

In December 2014 TT and Healthabitat worked with Mr Bishnu Shrestha to find the next community for the teeth and toilets program – now the Village Health Improvement Program.  The principal of Shree Jalapadevi School was very enthusiastic to improve conditions in his school.

The school is in a valley not far from the larger village of Melamchi.  There are 562 students, more than 50% are female.  Some of the female students receive scholarships to attend school.  These scholarships are provided by the Rural Health and Education Service Trust (RHEST) to help poor families resist girl trafficking which is unfortunately practised in many parts of Nepal.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
