Rebuilding the Future of Nepal
BY NEVO SHINAAR
ON SEP 29, 2015
"We cannot control nature. It does what it does. However we can control human nature and our ability to work together in the face of these odds."
In Rebuilding the Future of Nepal, from our Inspire Nepal Channel, Nevo Shinaar shares the story of his involvement in the Earthquake in Nepal in 2015. After committing for 10 month's work as a volunteer in Nepal, aimed to help rural communities become more resilient to globalisation and external changes, and to enhance their quality of life, Shinaar had such a meaningful experience that he decided to stay longer and facilitate a new group of volunteers. Within another 8 months, the ravaging earthquake sent the entire country into a state of disarray particularly the very communities with with whom he'd be working. In trying to address the needs of these communities in ways that were most relevant and effective he learned some life lessons, and shares them with us here.
This was "Presenation of the Day" on Friday October 2nd, 2015.
