|Our TRIFC Volunteer Trekking Group|
Our 2013 TRIFC trekking group had two half-days of sightseeing and two half-days of volunteer projects. After a morning trip to the historic city of Bhaktapur, we visited the Kavre-Banepa School for the Deaf. Principal Krishna gave our volunteers a comprehensive tour of the school, visiting all of the classrooms and introducing the kids.

The students were very excited to have us there and all remembered our donation of a table tennis (ping pong) table last year. In previous years TRIFC has donated computers, kitchen equipment, balls, games and educational supplies.

After the tour and a tasty boxed lunch our Deaf Women’s Empowerment Group introduced their greeting card embroidery project to our group of volunteers. Our volunteer group had learned a bit of Nepali sign language so they each introduced themselves via sign language!
I think everyone bonded quite nicely as you can see in the final photo with our group signing with a heart-sign as they prepared to leave.
