Visiting Binod in Kathmandu

this will unfortunately only be a short summary of my recent visit to Kathmandu. There will be a video published soon.

It has almost been two years since Binod and I have first met. I flew to Kathmandu in January this year to meet him, his guardians and the school management.

It happened to be winter vacations as I got there and no classes held in the first week of my stay actually allowed us to spend some quality time together.

We explored the neighbourhood together, had Lassis, played a whole lot of Badminton, visited Sites around Kathmandu on a Royal Enfield, bought some new clothes and Binod even thought me how to make Samosas.

His english skills have improved a lot and we were able to communicate about most things. He has turned into a very cheeky teenager with a great sense of humour.

He acts very helpful around the little restaurant that is run by his local guardians.

I am very proud of this brave boy and how he is dealing with his special situation of growing up without parents on his side.

I would like to thank everyone for their support.

Binod is doing well

The manager of the school, ‘Ananta’ just sent us those two pictures. Binod is apparently doing really well and even started to learn how to play the flute. We are very proud of him and are glad that he seems more motivated than the kid in the left corner 😉
