The transformative power of a solidarity trip: Altea's letter to the family of the NGO DE Katmandu. "Dear HKH family, It is so complicated if not impossible to describe in words the ocean of experiences, emotions and feelings that have bathed every moment of this experience. Landing in Kathmandu, passing through the airport gates and seeing Nyima and Tendel waiting for us with so much excitement made tears of happiness well up in my eyes. Happiness that, thanks to each and every one of you, I have been able to feel in its most intense state.

Volunteer doing yoga in the Kathmandu project in Nepal. Travelling to the heart of Tibetan culture. Talking about life with monks and Buddhist believers until you lose track of time. Practising yoga in the place where it was born and where it is still lived with intensity today, in its streets, in its people. All this and much more awaits you on our Tumaini solidarity trips to India and Nepal. If you love their culture and believe in generosity, we give you 5 reasons why you have to experience it, for

Patricia in the Kathmandu project.“Funny, affectionate, kind, grateful, responsible…” Patricia lacks adjectives to define the young people of the Kathmandu NGO with which she collaborated during the month of July. His interest in Buddhism led him to this project and now he still feels “a bit like I'm there”. What attracted you to the charity trip to Nepal and the project? I really wanted to volunteer with children. Also, I have been reading about Buddhism for a long time and I was very attracted to go to a country with a

Lhadon, Lhamo, Mingdi and Sonam before going back to their village in Dolpo, Nepal. Can you imagine what it must be like not seeing your family for 5 years? Have a single contact with your parents, in December, through a letter? Oddly enough, we are talking about the 21st century. This is Komang, one of the most remote Tibetan villages in the world, located in the heart of the Nepalese Himalayas. As there is no institute in the town, boys, girls and young people must travel to Kathmandu to continue studying... far from their loved ones.

Look with another volunteer and several young people from the Kathmandu NGOThis has not been just any November for Look. For 20 days, he lived in a small Kathmandu NGO with boys and girls who had to leave their remote villages to continue studying. Right away the little ones treated her like one more. She has returned amazed at their generosity and everything they have to teach us. “I have wonderful memories of all of them,” he explains. What does a volunteer do at the Kathmandu NGO you collaborated with? We would wake up

Jesus with some of the boys and girls from the project in Nepal. How many times have you heard that "time flies by"? I am writing this from the waiting room of the Kathmandu airport and I honestly do not know where the last 24 days that I have lived have been. This experience has been like a flash: fleeting, yes, but also very intense. I have been blinded by the friendliness of the people, by the splendor of the innumerable number of temples, by the -why not say it- bustling and stressful city

Naiara has just returned from Kathmandu with a backpack full of lessons. For 15 days, he has lived with children from Komang, a remote village in northeastern Nepal. These minors have had to travel to the capital to continue studying, and they need help with their homework and support in their adaptation to the big city. During his trip, he has lived "very curious, incredible and unforgettable" experiences. The day at the project began with a family breakfast. “At 7:30 in the morning, 22 children, two volunteers, the coordinator of the

Inés and Nyima with several Komang students in KathmanduLife in Komang is not like in most of the world. This small village is located at a high altitude (4,500m) in the Dolpo region of western Nepal and bordering Tibet to the north, now in China. To get to Komang from Kathmandu it takes about 15 days where you combine bus, plane and a hard trekking of almost 10 days. There is no secondary education in Komang. When the boys and girls arrive

Pedro with children from the project. His energy is inexhaustible! Pedro flew for 15 hours from London to Kathmandu to help in the secondary education of Tibetan boys and girls. “But without a doubt, the long trip was worth it,” he says. For three weeks, he helped with the studies of children and adolescents who have had to leave their remote and isolated villages in the Himalayas to continue studying in the capital thanks to the project with which we collaborate. Life in the project begins early, since that the volunteers and

Post from the Tumaini team The earthquake in Nepal has caused very important losses. It has left more than 8,000 dead and the destruction of a large part of the country. The organic farm we collaborate with, very close to Pokhara, was largely destroyed, but the family suffered no harm. The impact for this family has been great, they have been living in a single room since the rest of the house could not be. For our part, we have had to postpone the trip of several people
