Headed Out to Field Info Sessions

Here at the Alternatives office, we’re ready to head out to villages all around the Kaski district to hold Fellowship info sessions at secondary schools near Pokhara.  In five other regions of the country, partner organizations are helping us by doing the same thing – reaching out to motivated teens ready to take on a big challenge and adventure after passing out of high school.

This is a busy and exciting time for our staff.  Talking with first-generation literate youth in rural areas is inspiring for us too.  We’ll leave armed with this big stack of leaflets and application forms.  Which of these pieces of paper will land in the hands of a future Gaky’s Light Fellow?
