Annapurna Pranam 2012: An Annual Visit from Students from Hong Kong International School, Hong Kong
Over the past four years I’ve been leading tours to Nepal for high school students from Hong Kong International School. Since we go to the Pokhara area, we call our group “Annapurna Pranam” or “At the Feet of Annapurna.” Each group of sixteen students and two teachers has focused on visiting schools and children’s homes. And each time we have tried to help Nepali students gain access to sources of information our students take for granted. We have provided laptops, Internet service, funds for computer labs, and part of the salary for a full time computer teacher. It is a mere drop in the bucket, but perhaps a few students have benefited.
Our week-long trips would not be possible without the expertise and experience of Nepal Sanctuary Trekking. From planning before the trips with Prasant and Tulsi to the on-the-spot attention to detail by the Sherpa guides and porters, the organization is smooth and flexible to our needs. We have nothing but praise and gratitude for the professionalism and personal care provided by Nepal Sanctuary Treks. I have been recommending that my friends, my colleagues – and anyone I hear is going there – contact Nepal Sanctuary Treks for any type of visit to fascinating Nepal!
