Happy Birthday to the RANCH!

Today is the 11th birthday of our Kathmandu RANCH and we celebrated in style. The RANCH kids performed traditional songs and dances and acted out numerous skits.

The themed birthday cake made by the kids represents Mt. Manaslu with the number 11 coming forth from it and the sun rising over the mountain. After 11 years of training and pouring into the Manaslu region through these kids, the sun has risen over the mountain and the kids are ready to help carry hope to their own ethnically Tibetan people.

"Earth Hour," a campaign that encourages positive action for the environment, was this week.

MountainChild is excited that Nepalis are seeking to bring ‘green’ sustainable alternatives to an otherwise heavily populated, overly polluted, and an excessively consumptuous city. They are a form of energy made from recycled materials and/or local resources that can be found in the city and/or village. They are also excellent with respect to waste management and burn with little-to-no emissions compared to open wood fires that most villagers use in their homes. They are used for cooking food and they generally burn hot and for long periods of time. They can also be used as a source of generating income. 

This is just one alternative to cooking that can be used, especially in villages, where cooking on inefficient open fires, expensive/heavy gas tanks for stoves, and respiratory problems abound. We are so pleased to see this type of technology already being used in Nepali villages and our hope is that more Nepali people (all people actually…) would be exposed to these types of technologies.

A great big thank you goes out to those of you who were part of bringing new books to the children at the RANCH! Thank you for carrying hope.

Today is World Water Day! On this day, nations and individuals throughout the world are directly focused on one of the most precious, life-giving resources the world has; WATER!. For the year 2014, World Water Day is focused on the water-energy nexus, particularly addressing inequities, especially for the ‘bottom billion’ who live in slums and impoverished rural areas and survive without access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services.

Nepal is truly rich in water resources due to its location, its ecosystems and the vast Himalayas. HOWEVER, the reality is quite different and it is truly a case of too much, yet too little! Poverty keeps the water out of reach and contamination, due to uncontrolled dumping of wastes, turns the rivers into giant sewers. This leads to staggering statistics like: half of all people suffer from one or more diseases associated with unsafe drinking water and inadequate sanitation (UN, 2006), 1 in 5 child deaths is directly attributable to water related diseases (WHO/UNICEF, 2009), and approximately 2,000 children die each day worldwide from water and poor sanitation conditions (WaterAid, 2012).

The villagers and children of the Himalayas are some of the most vulnerable and part of the ‘bottom billion’ with the majority lacking safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services. MountainChild is actively focused on the water-energy nexus through our two interconnected core issues of Health and Environment. We are striving to empower appropriate and sustainable water, sanitation, and energy infrastructure through clean water projects, construction of latrines and renewable energy sources like solar and wind technologies.

On this World Water Day, benefit the ‘bottom billion’ living in the Himalayas in raising awareness, contributing your time and energy for the impoverished, and supporting MountainChild in carrying hope to the children of the Himalayas.

Today was graduation day for the students of the MountainChild School of Frontier Training. Congratulations to each and every student. We are so proud of you! 

The school is located in Kathmandu, Nepal and lies at the base of the Himalayas. We recruit these students from across the Himalayas to train, empower, equip and then mobilize them back into the strategic areas from which they are drawn.

In 2013, the school welcomed 27 full-time residential adult students, who initiated their school year on September 16th. The students graduated today after completing a six month course. Course subjects included things like, Strategic Coordinator Training, Leadership Development, Personal Formation, Development Project Training and a wide range of complimentary courses aimed at preparing them for work amongst MountainChild’s targeted 24 remote ethnic Tibetan people groups.
