  • "Never think you can’t write – you can. If you can speak, you can write. If you can understand this, you are fully qualified to tell a story of your own. It will belong to you; you can select and create and mix up and omit anything you want. Just start at once, on any old paper or screen or tablet.

  • I am so pleased that I took the time to write my memoir for friends and family - now you have the chance to do likewise, while helping some of Nepal's most vulnerable children.

We are raising funds for our continuing projects in Nepal.


The funds will be used for the care costs of the children at our Kathmandu refuges, for vocational training needs of girls and for support costs of our partner NGO, ChoraChori-Nepal.
