Nepal Trek – April 23, 2016
One year ago, our ASF team was in the Mt. Everest region of Nepal visiting remote schools when the devastating earthquakes occurred. From that point on, the trek took on a different priority; assisting with the immediate needs of those affected by the earthquakes.
They will now turn to the task that they began one year ago. Assessing the needs of the remote schools since the earthquakes, selecting teachers to sponsor, and organizing the rebuilding of the Thame school destroyed by the earthquakes will be their main focus.
The foundation will be combining efforts with Thule of Sweden. Thule has generously donated backpacks for each child attending the Thame school. They will accompany Apa and his team to Thame.
The team will assemble in the city of Kathamndu before making the journey to Thame.
To get to Thame is no easy feat. The journey begins with over 30 hours of travel. From Kathmandu, they will board a twin otter jet to fly to Lukla, one of the worlds most dangerous airports. After Lukla, the travel is all on foot.
