As the semester winds down and GlobeMed at CU-Boulder finishes its last efforts to raise funds for Himalayan HealthCare (HHC), a group of students from GlobeMed at CU-Boulder prepares for their 3 month expedition in Nepal. This group of students has been meeting for the past 4 months talking with the founder of HHC, Anil Parajuli, to discuss their itinerary and attempting to absorb as much Nepali culture as possible in Boulder, CO. Since GlobeMed at CU-Boulder and HHC are such close partners, they try to visit one another about once per year to check-up on projects and maintain close friendships. This trip to Nepal will allow the students, as liaisons to the GlobeMed chapter, to view, firsthand, the progress in the villages surrounding Tipling due to GlobeMed's efforts.
For example, the students who will spend time in the villages will meet women who are benefitting from our orginal "30 Goats in 30 Days" campaign, which provides 4 goats to a family, giving them investment options for land, education, and other guided business ventures. The students will also view the latrines and cook stoves that have been built through GlobeMed's efforts, as well as medical supplies that health posts need in the most remote regions of Nepal. While viewing the progress of our projects is important, documenting the progress through photographs, interviews, and journaling will give our staff, friends and donors a better understanding of the legitimate impact GlobeMed has in the communities HHC directly serves.
After the summer, we hope that you will return to our page to see the updates, pictures and video from this group's time in Nepal. Until then, GlobeMed at CU-Boulder wishes you a happy spring and fantastic beginning to your summer.
