Tansen was another lively, picturesque venue for our last set of workshops, which again, seemed to be well received and successful thanks to the efforts of Gopal and the other members of the Palpa area NELTA office.

I would like to give a very BIG THANKS to Catriona, Scot, Larry, Debbie, Kathi, Karin, Paul, Cherie, Sarah, and Ryan for their cooperation, enthusiasm, flexibility, and friendship. Could not have asked for a better group of colleagues and friends to work with. Special thanks to all our Nepali colleagues at NELTA and at all the workshops, as well, for their enthusiasm and making us feel welcome and appreciated.

Thank you all again, and hope you and other colleagues can join us on our next visit in February 2018. Contact either myself or Catriona Takeuchi, here on FB, if you are interested.

Apart form the conference and workshops, there were naturally opportunities to visit historical and cultural sites as well as certain local anti-human trafficking organizations, as well as an organization promoting women’s empowerment. Please have a look at the following websites for more information on the great work the organizations are doing.

Local organizations some of us were able to visit:
Local Women’s Handicraft - www.lwhnepal.com
SASANE - www.sasane.org.np/
Shakti Samuha - shaktisamuha.org.np/
Maiti Nepal - www.lwhnepal.com

Syangja was perhaps the most rural of towns we visited, but offering a peaceful and equal abundance of warmth and enthusiasm, thanks to Budi, the other people at the local education office and especially to the participants, many of whom had to travel nearly a day themselves to attend the workshops. Thanks to all the visiting presenters as well, for their enthusiasm and flexibility in adapting their presentations to a group of largely elementary school teachers, as opposed to university or high school teachers.
