One of Take on Nepal’s July Volunteers, Riccardo Valenza, was so affected by his experiences in Nepal that he told his story to his local newspaper, the Townsville Bulletin. Riccardo hopes that by sharing his experiences he can raise funds to help girls from Batase village go to university.
While volunteering with us in Nepal can be an enjoying and fulfilling experience, it’s important not to forget why that volunteering is necessary, and the very real impact it can have on the children and women of Batase village. A single volunteer, like Riccardo, can make a huge difference to the lives of the villagers, both while visiting and working with them in Nepal, and through actions he takes once he returns home to Australia.
