GVI Nepal does 'The Hunger Games'!

Dear Supporter,

Every day our volunteers go up to our street kids rehabilitation centre here in Pokhara, they help them with their homework and English skills, have a game of football with them and on Fridays, they have a shower. However, the children wouldn't be able to run around the football field without their Daal Bhat power so our aim was to provide the children with a whole year's supply of food; and this is where The Hunger Games began!

Our team 4 staff and 8 volunteers joined forces with a local farm to thrash, sieve and bag 12 fields of rice; thats 300kg or the weight of 3 baby elephants - in other words A LOT! The farm said it would take us about 3 hours to complete the thrashing, 4 hours later and we were about half way through; we had some catching up to do! The Daal Bhat definitely gave the team the power needed to finish thrashing the rice and we got through the rest of the pile in an hour.

Once we had finished thrashing it was time to sieve the grains to remove any leaves or dirt and for us to roll the discarded plants into bails to be transported up the hill. The brave and strong ones amongst the team helped to bail the plants and carry them the traditional Nepali way up to the top of the hill; the Nepali way being using their heads! And whilst they were doing that, the rest of the team were sieving and bagging the rice.

And the total amount is still collated and we couldn't be happier! This means that the children at the street kids rehabilitation centre will have two full (and I mean full!) plates of Daal Bhat a day for a whole year. It's so important that we can guarantee food for these children; it takes a weight of the mind of Aamaa, the mother of the home as well as giving the children the energy they need to develop and excel in all that they do!

Many thanks for filling lots of stomachs this year!
