My experience at her farm was very inspiring. I arrived after a trek up the mountains where I got my first heart-warming experience of the area. A local woman insisted on helping me carry my backpack in her basket on her head when I was going to help my friend Elle to carry her bag, the woman insisted on carrying her bag too. She was now dancing up the mountains with about 50kg on her head! This loving act was just an introduction to the rest of my stay. When finally arrived at the farm we were greeted by women and children who open their home and hearts to us. We were instantly there sisters. I had already been asked to use my skills in art and design to create a mural on one of the walls. With the support of my new sisters and the other volunteers, we manage to finish the task. It took us on a few adventures such as getting paint from the local village and getting a lift up the mountain in the local delivery truck. Unfortunately, I got sick after a while, but the overwhelming care I got from my sisters made me feel like I couldn't pick a better place to be sick. I give Her Farm 5 stars since it's a unique experience that was carried with so much love and inspiration! Yes, women and girls can do anything such as building houses, running farms and raising children. Thanks for giving me this experience!
I had been following Her Farm with great interest for almost a year. When the April 25th quake ended my climbing expedition in the Khumbu area, I contacted Sunita and Scott to see if I could be of some help. What I experienced was nothing less than amazing!
The women who manage the farm, the volunteers, and all the children are remarkable. Beyond this, I saw firsthand how they added a community outreach endeavor, providing earthquake relief to the 85% destroyed village.
Although I returned home after two weeks, a part of my heart will always be in Mankhu and I will continue to support and promote Her Farm and Mountain Fund Volunteers.
I highly recommend anyone of any age to support Sunita and Scott in the development of Her Farm, whether as a volunteer, a donor, or simply a few words of praise and thanks for their heart-warming compassion.
My oldest son went to Nepal with the Mountain Fund in 2011 to serve as a medical trekker and to help with Her Farm. I can not say enough great things about this organization! - From the incredible, legitimate work they do to the way my son was well taken care of. At first I was worried, as all mothers would be, for one of their children to take such a far journey away from home. I soon realized that he was in safe hands. The experiences had and the memories he made during his 5 month stay has changed him for the better in unimaginable ways. My son left a boy, but came home a respectable and appreciative man. Thank you, Scott MacLennan!
We had a wouderfoul experience in Nepal meeting Nanda Kulu and all the family. The Mountain Fund and Mitrata org are doing a excelent work. We're proud to help you. This world needs poeple like you. Namaste!
I understand first hand the experience, competence and dedication of the staff of this organization. This hands on personal management is unique in my experience. I am certain that 100% of any contribution makes itself visible and effective: nothing wasted.
