Amba Datta has just returned to Kathmandu from a teaching mission to Jhapa.  Jhapa is the easternmost district of Nepal and is divided into 47 Village Development Committees and three municipalities.  Jhapa is home to many indigenous ethnic nationalities, thus it is diverse and rich in culture and traditions due to the influences of its different tribes. 

 Amba’s training team was Atmaram Timsina, Parmila K.C., Surendra Bhandari and Ganga Basnet from the ICA/Social Artistry Center in Kathmandu. 

 They conducted Social Artistry trainings in Japha as follows:

1.         Women’s Cooperative for 2 days

2.         Mechi Municipalities staffs for 2 days

3.         Life Line Help Group for 1 day

4.         Sunraise Rehabilitation Centre for 2 days

 The team was unable to do the scheduled training at the jail because the Chief District Officer was transferred to another district, and there was no liaison to carry out the arrangements.

 A full report will follow this one as soon as all of the team has returned.
