Gandys Foundation Trustee Preet Legha bowled over by visit to ChoraChori in Nepal.
Over the past year, we have been privileged to work alongside UK partner charity, The Gandys Foundation. The Foundation has joined us in providing funding for the set up our new Boys’ Hostel and the retrofit of Kitini College in Kathmandu. The coordination on behalf of Gandys has been done with huge attention to detail by its Trustee, Preet Legha.
At the end of last month, passionate dancer Preet had the opportunity to visit the ChoraChori Children’s Refuge and Rehabilitation Centre to see how our joint funds have been allocated. Afterwards, she reported back to us as follows:
“In October I left the UK for a month to work with ChoraChori Nepal on an art and dance project. I was nervous about what to expect and how I would emotionally handle the traumatic stories of the children. I was welcomed by amazing and supportive staff and the kindest, loving and beautiful children. I never imagined the amount of fun, laughter and connection I would have with the girls and the joy of dancing, playing and painting with them was beyond my expectations. The more time we spent together the more energetic, open and cheeky we all became! The strength, courage and sisterhood of these girls continue to inspire me and I miss the girls so much.”
