Over spring break I traveled with the school to Nepal. Working with buildOn, an organization that builds schools in villages throughout the world with a history of no adequate school structure. So after flying to Nepal and spending our first day touring Kathmandu, we flew to the village. The first day in the village was slightly overwhelming since we were honored with a four hour long welcoming ceremony. We met our host families after the ceremony and spent that first night getting to know them. For the next four days we worked in shifts, building the school or learning from the villagers. I was blown away with the kindness the villagers showed, especially my host family, and how rewarding that relationship was even with the language barrier.
