It's a hard knock life

How would you describe your life?

These are the
hands of a Nepali man.
When he was asked to describe his life
his answer was simply:

"Hard. I have proof."

and then he showed his hands.

Morning moment on the balcony in Kathmandu-
funny how it almost looks like
I shot the pic using a Fisheye lense,
when it is just a regular one.
And it is also funny how we asked
the painterguy to paint our door white
and it ended up being soft purple....
Hahaha- guess we'll stick with
this color then.

Anyways, I'm on the way to the metal workshop
to get some new designs in process!
Planning to show you all more pics of our
outfits &
how we like to style our jewellery,
but first thing first (;

Have a great day!

Voluntourism Nepal?

The whole A/BARENESS philosophy is 
based on these exact words-
We truly believe that many drops 
mighty ocean
this is also the reason why our 
'Give Back' Nepal projects is all 
about sustainable water- 
systems at Maya Universe Academy. 

We believe that if the children
learn how to use and benefit 
from this systems our 
work will have greater impact for 
a longer period of time
as the children will bring
these systems and knowledge into
 the future. 

You might ask yourself what you have
done or what you can do

If you are considering 
coming to Nepal and contribute 
somehow or you
want to know more about how we work 
maybe you want to donate a dime or two?

Sharing is Caring.
