Student Experience: My Journey to Nepal
In the wake of shattering earthquakes and devastating chaos, I experienced glimmers of hope and healing.
Since my return from Nepal in August, I’ve had a lot of people ask me how it went.
It seems an easy enough question but the answer is far more complicated. I’d been
to Nepal before and had seen a side of this small Himalayan nation that tourists often
miss. I spent the summer of 2014 setting up and running basic public health workshops
for sexually-exploited women and children in Kathmandu. That summer, I learned a lot
about what people are capable of, from women who had been sold into prostitution by
their husbands, to young girls who had been gang-raped by strangers. I witnessed horrendous
human cruelty and depravity, but left Nepal inspired by the glimmers of hope and resilience
these individuals exuded. It was an experience that left me raw and humbled and aching
to do more with vulnerable women there.
It was from this yearning that “Girls Moving Mountains” emerged.
