New GFV Video Release!!!

Video Social Documentary Photographer, Karen Ande visited Nepal in February of this year and spent two weeks in Bungamati photographing our project, the early childhood program, and the children! She created a great short video that shows the GFV program in action! Watch the video here or at our website. Check out Karen's photography at www.andephotos.com.

Recently, our caregiver “Mothers” received training on child growth and development. Women from the community also participated in the training to further their own parenting skills. Other news from the community includes the expansion of our Home-Stay program for income generation, and continued plans to initiate additional income generation projects, which will help support the Family House and ECD center. And the elders of the community are continuing to support our program and their special connections with the children (see photo)

The Bungamati Family House has 2 new volunteers, Ms. Thi-Lan Johnson from Albany, CA (see photo) will be joined this week by Jessica Smith from Australia. Thi-Lan brings with her experience in living abroad, working with children, and a rich background in art and music. We are excited to have them both. Everybody benefits in a rich exchange of cultural and knowledge. (We are currently expanding our volunteer program and welcome volunteer and intern inquiries.)

Back in the U.S., interest in Global Family Village has been growing. Our Executive Director, Ms. Freema Davis resides in Berkeley, CA when not in Nepal. She has been facilitating outreach events in the Bay Area to gain support of the project. She has generated many new supporters and recruited two interns, Ms. Sunita Stablein, Master of Social Work student at Humboldt State University, and Ms. Jasmine Frye, Master Social Work student at the University of California Berkeley.

Your support is very necessary and appreciated. Your donations helps us to help the community so that the project and the early childhood program will be self-sustaining within 5 years!

Thank you so much! Namaste!

The GFV Boards, Advisors and Volunteers.
