A few weeks ago the girls from hostel came to The Mountain Fund house in Kathmandu and entertained our volunteers with a dance show.
The next day we had the chance to see the performance they were rehearsing for in person when we attended the family day festival at Orchid Garden.
Enjoy the photos from both the practice dance at our house and the on-stage performance the following day. It's really amazing how these children, all from Kathmandu's poorest families can put on such a great dance show.
We have had some setbacks the past few months, I am sorry to report. The landlord from the first flat we rented to house the girls asked us to leave, claiming that 9 girls make too much noise. The current landlord is threatening to toss us out as well. In Nepal, people do not want to rent for children's homes and finding a cooperative landlord is an ongoing challenge. Perhaps one day we can purchase a home and be free of this constant threat that hangs over the girls.
