Thoroughly enjoyed my time as a member of the construction crew with AAA’s Nepal expedition 2012/13. On top of the opportunity to give towards a community that I had never met before, the camaraderie shared between the AAA organisation and other volunteers throughout the trip, during the work, trek and sightseeing stages was a truly fulfilling and humbling experience. This is an experience that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone, whatever their stage in life!
I loved experiencing a culture that is so strong-willed and determined, yet so easy going and genuinely happy. The adversities faced by the local Nepali people is what keeps them going day in day out, and the generosity of Westerners is a gift well and truly deserved.
A truly inspiring experience watching the participants and Nepali locals working together to successfully complete the Mongoladoya School construction project. The most touching memory was hearing the immense gratitude from the local community and school children throughout the project duration and the celebration ceremony thrown for us after the completion of the works.
