Fundraising in Nepal
My name is Sarah Ferris and I am the Director & Trip Leader for Bodhi Tree Foundation. I led a group of 11 women to the remote district of Humla, Nepal as a fundraiser. We raised enough money to train 30 local women at a 5-day Safe Motherhood training, purchase and distribute 300 Clean Delivery Kits, hold several mini-health clinics for women and children, and distribute essential children's medications.
We have 2 fundraising treks scheduled this year - one in late May to the Saga Dawa Festival at Raling Gompa and another all-women's trek in October. www.bodhitreefoundation.org
Attached is a great photo of the women in their Macabi Skirts at 11,000 ft at the base of Saipal.
I LOVE my Macabi Skirt! It is the best trekking skirt I have ever had and is essential for treks in Nepal!
