Beginning of December I travelled to the district of Rupandehi to visit some fellow volunteers and visit the schools where they are working. The results have been many new insights, ideas and images of education in Nepal. Schools where boys and girls sit seperate, where out of school children are playing only within meters outside of the schools and seeing girls work in the country side, doing the hardest jobs themselves... But besides that I saw my fellow VSO colleagues conducting great work, with visiting schools 6 days a week, training teachers and trying to overcome barriers in education on a daily base!! Keep up the good work! and a special thank you to Akke with whom I shared many a laugh, good discussion and dutch 'pepernoten'. Hereby I share some of the pictures of an amazing week in the district.
