With the 1st day of the month of Baishakh only a matter of seconds away from coming to an end, I’d best take this opportunity to wish all our friends and supporters a very Happy New Year! Regardless of whether or not you’re aware of the Bikram Sambat lunar calendar used officially here in Nepal, I hope that 2069 is a year full of health and happiness for all of you. With new years generally providing good opportunities for fresh starts and clean slates, I’d like to unveil the shamefully late follow-up to our inaugural newsletter of 2009. I’m pretty sure it contains more than enough words to let me off the hook with an uncharacteristically short blog-post here! Here’s hoping you enjoy what we’ve come up with this time ’round. If you do, perhaps you’d also be kind enough to download it, print it and share it with anyone else you think might be interested in learning more about our work.
