It is nowÂ just three days until I fly to Nepal.Â I will be working in an orphanage for two months and then have about three and a half weeks to travel.Â
I have to say I am getting pretty nervous but also very excited.Â I am looking forward to getting to know a place for a prolonged period of time, immersing myself in the culture and staying with a local family.Â Being away fromÂ Westerners and everday luxuries is likely to be a challenge but I alsoÂ hope it will prove to be very rewarding.
I have a strongÂ desire to helpÂ with International DevelopmentÂ and decided to do this project before I began a career.
I really hope that it will be a positive and rewarding experience for the locals and myself, and I'm ready to work hard and do my best.Â I know it will be sad at times but helping the children out with English and Maths should help improve their futures.
I will keep the website updated as often as possble so you can see how I am getting on.
