Buy a quilt and send a child to school for a year.

More stories to share. Our travels in Kathmandu took us into a small cafe which was down a narrow lane from the circular walk around the  Boudhanath  Temple. We are 3 ladies who love quilting. I’m a Teacher and the other two ladies, Ginger and Rose are my travel companions and my students. We saw this photo pinned on a rather dusty quilt and I took the phone No down but we were unable to access the information at that late date.       Quilts for kids Nepal Right now I’m waiting to hear back from the administrators of the program but its certainly something worth looking at.

Its amazing what a small gift can do.

Just outside the temple gates were two little boys playing. Their faces were dirty, their clothes in rags, but they had the biggest smiles. They followed us for a short time. The other ladies had gone into the temple, but friend Pam pulled the two books out of the bag and gave one to each of the boys. The looks on their faces were just priceless. They couldn’t believe it.

They took off running as if afraid that we would take them back again.

The Tailor.

We’ve spent almost 3 days here in this city and indeed in one of the other the squares, this old man has a position in one of the raised, tiled platforms. He smokes quietly and deliberately seeming to savor his cigarette. He’s a tailor. and his equipment is stored in a small alcove set in the wall behind him. A pair of scissors, a container of machine oil and 2 reels of thread.
