#FlashbackFriday #FBF This fancy graphic was my first fundraising campaign to get to Nepal back in 2010, just an email attachment to my friends and fam.  A week from today I’ll be on a plane back there for the 7th time! Just a short follow up trip, and the agenda isn’t too different from 5 years ago. #FullCircle #Nepal #ILoveNepal #Karmidanda #NepalEarthquake #InternationalDevelopment #DisasterRecovery #CommunityDriven #Grassroots #LearnToListen #ListenToLearn

I just read a new survey of local people’s opinions on the #DisasterRelief effort in the most affected districts. Enlightening and distressing. Every response overwhelmingly negative.  One of the questions was “Do you feel you’ve been heard?” 75% responded no. This is the linchpin, and we can do better.  I think they’d get a different answer had they surveyed #Karmidanda! Pictured here is the local team trained to manage their own aid. #ParticipatoryDevelopment #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal #LearnToListen #ListenToLearn #NepalEarthquake #NepalPhotoProject #NEPAN #InternationalDevelopment
