Where I stayed
I spent the day at the Orchid Garden daycare. The kids are all from really poor families...the kids would be on the street while their mothers worked if they didn't have this place. All of the children are so beautiful...I took a lot of pictures! If you check out my facebook you can see them all.
The day was really hot...I have a headache now from the sun. I drank a lot of water, so I don't think I'm dehydrated
The lady running the daycare took us down the little dirt road the daycare was on to see the home of one of the poorer mothers, so that we could understand what the children come from a little better. It was by the side of a creek that smelled like a sewer (and probably had a lot else in common with a sewer), and it was made of corrugated tin. The door was a piece of cloth. The mother was making Nepali paper by hand in the front with a younger woman, who we found out was 21 years old and had never been to school. She was of the lowest caste. I've posted pictures of the house.
The kids were all really sweet. It only costs a couple hundred dollars to sponsor them for a year...give them an education, books, medical care, etc. Whenever I make some money...I think I'm going to do it. The center also needs new playground equipment...so if you know of anyone looking for a good cause to get involved in...check this place out!
