Asha is the only formally educated person in Shilla and the surrounding
villages in the Parvarti Valley. She is part and parcel of our trekking
tours. She speaks good English and acts as a translator when you
want to ask her aunt about some special fragrant herbs you´ve
just found along the roadside. After Asha finished college she decided
to go back to her village to teach the small children. She sends
you her love and says that any kind of children's toys or second
hand winter clothes will be welcome as a donation.
At the moment the children of Shilla are attending an outdoor
school, both summer and winter. They have no buildings or classrooms
to stay in. Here you see Nadege from Denmark with some of Asha's
Shilla children. In 2003 we had with us 40 kg of second hand winter
clothes for the children.
