Warmest greetings,,,,

Dear Andrea Berner,
Warmest greetings and Namaste,,,,
Hope,, this mail will find you in the best of your health. It has been almost two
months since we started our new session 2018/2019. Maya Tamang is in very
good health and enjoying every moment of school activities. This year she
is studying in class four and doing good as usual.
The weather is pretty good as of frequent rain this year. It seems the monsoon will
start very soon. No more hotter days this year… It's always under 30 Celsius. We
are busy with the regular daily classes and the extra activities among the four houses.
The kids often have competitions like; hand writing, speech, drawings/paintings,
debate, easy writing, poem writing and recitation, spelling competition, quiz etc.
These activities help young minds to develop diverse talents and their young minds
to creative pursuits. Besides,, we have cultural dance classes to learn and know
about their culture and heritage. And also different games and sports to develop their
body, mind and spirit of sports. It's very nice to see our kids enjoying every activities
and learn extra things. Maya is also active and interested in many of the extra activities
through out the year and doing pretty well.
The best thing happening now in Nepal is no more political disturbances. No more
strikes and no more closures. We are having regular school days and its pretty good
feeling that the good days are now starting. Hope and pray that we will have same
kind of atmosphere in the days to come.
It's always a great feeling and a great inspiration for us if we could hear from you.
Thanks for all your love, effort and continuing support. With all our heartiest appreciation,
good wishes and love to you and your family.
With warmest namaste,,,,,

Link und Bericht zum Heimoffice :)

“grüß Gott” – oder eben “Namaste”

kurz eine kurze Info, ich mache derzeit eine Reisepause, da die Schulferienpreise für Flüge nach Nepal etwas in die Höhe geschnellt sind. Unseren Patenkindern geht es prima. NOCH haben wir einige Patenkinder auf der Liste, die einen Sponsor suchen 🙂 Also FALLS jemand 10 Euro pro Monat “erübrigen” kann 🙂 Wir sind dankbar! Und die Familien der Kinder noch viel, viel mehr!

Auf der Suche nach Informationen über Epilepsie behandelnde Krankenhäuser in Nepal bin ich auf einen Bericht gestoßen, den ich teilen wollte. Es umschreibt in meinen Augen sehr gut, wie die medizinische Versorgung in Nepal ist. Auch welche Faktoren das Leben mit beeinflussen. Epilepsie ist derzeit leider ein Thema in Nimas Familie. Schaun wir mal was man tun kann.


Medikamente … müssen bezahlt werden, Unersuchungen auch.. darum helfen wir auch da immer wieder 🙂

Wünsche noch einen wunderschönen Sonntag






generally where the money goes ....

Mama’s neue Zähne

O.k… es scheint soweit gut gelaufen zu sein. Nima’s Mama hat neue Zähne (unten) bekommen. Aufgrund der Kieferrückbildung, sowie der Tatsache, dass der letzte Zahn unten nicht stand hielt, musste ein neues “Unterteil” des Gebisses gefertigt werden. Dazu ist “Mama” tapfer mit uns nach Kathmandu gereist.. und hat wieder einiges über sich ergehen lassen müssen. Jetzt ist es aber sowieit.. – Das Gebiss sitzt und ist super.. 🙂 Leider kann ich derzeit nicht mehr vor Ort sein, aber Nima hat uns die Bilder zukommen lassen 🙂

Große Freude und Danke an alle, die uns unterstützen!



English version for all! – Nepal on an (almost) “German schedule”

I wish u all a mega happy new year. HEALTH and PEACE are the wishes we better appreciate most…. Back in Nepal on my 15 day break from school is like living a German schedule in Nepal. Not one of my favorites but .. "ke garne" (what to do)..
After arriving here we were busy from day one on getting the "plan" (as a German I do need something like it … ) worked out. Our schedule of course was only a rough one but that’s normal for Nepal.. you only have a plan to change it according to the circumstances!
Then our trip to the village started .. and I had a bag full of goodies for the school. Used children shoes (extremly good ones 🙂 and highly appreciated)..and some of the footballs the "aircracks" had donated. I could not fit all of them at once into the luggage. Also the money (cash in Nepali Rupies… ) for the families of cour godchildren .. some presents some used clothes .. all high quality.. used.. and definitely worth to be carried into the village.
the trip took this time 2 days.. one day a extremly long Jeep trip from 8 until 8 … and only a quick pee stop and lunch and tea break.. chaning jeeps once. The second part already going up to Taxindo (however you spell this place).. a very cold top-of-the-mountain-village (around 3700 mtrs???)
Pemba met us there to carry some of the big bags… and we had a long trekking down the next day. From Taxindo we started 7 o’clock (Nepali time) (… which ended up 7.30 am German time)… the whole day! And it left me with a sore body for 3 days.. first day was no moving possible !

Most of the kids still had the same clothes .. and were only a little skinnier from the winter and the cold … that’s the life in the mountain. But there was happiness in their little faces when they saw us and we were happy to see them and we had a great time.. Of course, the more time I spend there the more I bump into the not so pretty sides of the village life, too…. and a lot of it does make me sad at times too…

Well we had three nights in the village then moved on towards Lukla.. with Nima’s Mama walking with us.. 2 days walking and 2 overnight stays.. then airport Lukla. Lucky we were to catch a flight out on the same day.. (although we almost had a "mountain marathon training".. to catch that flight at 11 am…)…

In KTM I spend my time visiting Maya again and getting the money for the city kids ready.. we paid Maya’s 4th year.. another couple of footballs were given to her school and some more to Kailash Bodi School in KTM..
all good.. and highly appreciated.

Today.. next round.. Mama will have her check up at the dentist in KTM unfortunately the one who made the third teeth is not here anymore so we had to look for another one..

I apologize for not writing in German.. just send me a message if there are any problems.. I do have to run to meet Nima and Mama at the dentist 🙂
More soon!
