Volunteer in Nepal program creates jobs for young women

The Mountain Fund girls

One of the things we are most proud of at The Mountain Fund and The Mountain Volunteer is the number of jobs we've created for young women over the years. It's not easy findind work in Nepal with estimates that as many as 40% of young people are unemployed. Given the patriachal system of Nepal, jobs for young women are hard to find.

We think our girls are great and our volunteers in Nepal think so too.

Medical Volunteers in Nepal at OBGYN camp

There's no better way to tell this story than to just copy and paste the email from the volunteers themselves, so here it is;

We had the first camp at Orchid Garden last Saturday, and we think it went well. We were quite worried if anyone would show up, but that worry was unnecessary. We had plenty of patients. We had excellent help from Sigrid and Lydia, which was good, because we saw patients constantly from 10 AM to 7 PM, only with a short break to have lunch. I guess we saw more than 50!
We did refer some of the patients for ultra sound at Helping Hands and we did place 5 ring peccaries’ for urine incontinence. There were no need for surgical intervention in the first instance, but the 5 women will come back in 2 weeks, ...
