Girls in Nepal during play-based storytelling workshop

We worked with many different children from rural and farm communities, whose parents were targets and victims of insurgencies from the recent past. Shadia and Bill took us a to hillside villages where the children told stories, made drawings and paintings and drew us into traditional play and games.

We spent two days with the novice Buddhist monks at the Temple of the Monkeys. The novices read, chanted, and played games, even outside in the rain, while some told stories.​

Three very important people helped us in Nepal: Ms. Shadia Marhaban, Ms. Rita Thapa and our guide, Bill Bahadur. We are grateful for their selfless contribution. Ms. Thapa allowed us to use her TEWA Center for our stay as well as for interviews, storytelling, and games activities.
