I’m entering my last week in Sikkim! I’m really going to miss working with the children and seeing their smiling faces every day…as cliche as that sounds. It’s astounding how much they appreciate the smallest things. On Saturday, I gave out the clothing that I collected and they were absolutely thrilled! THANK YOU to everybody was so generous with this clothing.
I also had another great meeting with Ms Kyippu, the founder of Lepcha Cottage, and she showed me some of the specific places where she’d like to install tiles for sanitation and shelves for organization. We also discussed a new project: The Kancha Fund. Kancha is a term of endearment meaning “youngest brother” in the Sikkimese language, and I am establishing it for this severely disabled boy I have mentioned frequently. He is unable to walk or speak, and has extremely limited use of his arms. I look forward to publishing more details about The Kancha Fund in the future on my website.
