Our board member of Everest Foundation, Linda Luk from the Netherlands was here in Nepal in January. She was here for a day to have a visit of projects run by Everest Foundation in Nepal. Focusing the children’s bright future, she has been a part of Everest Foundation.
Linda’s day in Nepal
She came to Nepal around 11 am on January and she went for sightseeing to Boudhanath Stupa along with our program manager Ishwor Shrestha. Likewise, she had a meeting on future plans to grow ahead the projects of the Everest Foundation with the founder of Everest Foundation, Tej Shrestha. She enjoyed delicious supper at Tej’s home. The next day after spending relaxed sleep; she visited the New Life Children’s Home and Career Building International Academy with Ishwor. She met the children enjoyed the lunch prepared by kids of NLCH and had a talk with them. Furthermore, she met with the principle and talked with him about the school. On the same day evening she took flight to Australia.
Here is what she has to say about her visit “Such a warm welcome during my first visit to Nepal for Everest Foundation. A home stays with Tej and Rupa, guided tours by Ishwor and lunch made by Sabina and her siblings at the children’s home. Similarly, many cups of tea while meeting other inspiring people, all working for greater education to change the future”.
She has been a part of the Everest Foundation since the end of 2017. By profession, she is an independent entrepreneur, journalist and a career counselor as she is a PR manager in the charity sector and social business development in her home country. That’s why she guides young people at a distance to society in broadening their future prospects.
She thinks; it’s important that all children get the chance to grow up safely and to develop. No matter where their cradle stands.
Previously, she planned to come to Nepal with Ruud, but due to unfortunate circumstances she was not able to come. This time she visited two projects and she will be coming again in February and will be visiting the project in Banepa as well. Furthermore, she will be organizing career counseling classes for the students of CBIA.
