In our previous blog we told you which venturer will be working on which project. What we did not tell you is what the communities are like. Therefore, in this blog we will shed more light on the communities and the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene projects we shall be working on this expedition.

Anil Karki, 19, is one of 24 Host Country Volunteers funded by BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA over the next two years in Nepal. Having completed high school and applied to study computer science at the University of Southern Maine in the USA, Anil wanted to do something useful with his time in between. He’s just completed Expedition 17C – the Spring programme – and explains here how this has helped to develop his skill set while contributing to society.

Ever wondered what exactly is involved in building a sustainable, earthquake resilient house? As Expedition 17C draws to a close, UK Volunteer Manager, Alex, a self-confessed 'maths nerd', marvels at her first ever real life use of Pythagoras theorem and other techniques she and the rest of our volunteers have been putting to good use in rural Nepal.
