After our time in Nepal, I was able to truly see what the opportunity for education means to people around the world. While working side by side the villagers, we were able to learn why they wanted to build a new school and offer their children opportunities that they did not have access to. During our homestay, Sophie and I were talking to our host father about the school project. We asked if his six year old nephew was excited for it to be finished and he responded that the whole village was excited, not only the children. It was very inspiring to see so many people working together as a community to bring about something that they think will be give many opportunities for their children and grandchildren.
