My partners and I spent a day conducting community evaluations of the earthquake relief work so many of you helped to provide. I skipped out on the men’s and women’s groups so as not to bias results, but sat in with the kids. #Feedback #TheyGotSkills #CrazyKids #ParticipatoryEvaluation #ParticipatoryDevelopment #CommunityBased #CommunityDriven #Karmidanda #RebuildKarmidanda #Nepal #NepalEarthquake #InternationalDevelopment  (at Laharepauwa,Rasuwa)

#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

This is ban mara, in Nepali, and I would love to know the English or scientific name. A common wild plant across Nepal, #Karmidanda people use it on cuts and wounds. After the #NepalEarthquake I used a poultice of this with ground cinnamon to slow bleeding while patients awaited transport. Do you know this plant? #NameThatHerb #PlantMedicine #Herbalism #NaturopathicMedicine #NatureProvides #Ayurveda #LocalsKnowBest #BanMara
