Ok folks here it is just a little look at the work I am doing in The Chepang region of Nepal Thanks to  Prakash Aryal and Ganesh Aryal. I first visited the Chepang Village in 2013 when Prakash and Ganesh Aryal asked me to come a visit their village was struggling. This area is 86 km from Kathmandu. Dhading and Chitwan Chepang Hills Trekking is sole because of one of the most ethnic Chepang Culture in Nepal. Chepang, speak their own separate language, leading a roaming life and their most important lifestyle, hunting, digging for wild root and fishing and established farming near jungles. A Praja Pande confidence healer might be an interesting figure for cultural tourists to be introduced with them. They reside in the remote and sparse contours of Dhading, Chitwan, Gorkha amd Makawanpur districts. The Volunteer Program targets its activities towards a specific school to bring that school up to basic educational levels. School Development Program in Remote Your contribution will be targeted to one school and you will be able to track the progress of your school and its students. Education is a priority in Nepal because it is a building block in the country’s reconstruction and revitalization. However, thousands of children are deprived of an education because there are not enough schools in Nepal, especially in rural areas where 72 % of the nation’s population lives. The Nepalese government does not have sufficient money to meet the demand for the construction of new schools​  

 

 

The name Chitwan meaning is heart and transliterated "vana"

meaning jungle or forest. Thus, the meaning of Chitwan is Heart of the Jungle. We will be visiting the Chitwan village, and the Shree National Basic School Amritpani 1-5 grades to deliver a message of hope. Our team will deliver backpacks, hand made toys, pencils, and shoes for each child at the local school. A local teacher at the school Marica Sarala, reached out to me on Facebook, after getting to know each other, she told me of the school that she works at, and the children, who many can’t afford a pair of shoes. The New U Recovery team decided that we would support this little village school, that is located in the Chitwan National Parkm which is a preserved area in the Terai Lowlands of south-central Nepal, known for its biodiversity. Its dense forests and grassy plains are home to rare mammals like one-horned rhinos and Bengal tigers. The park shelters numerous bird species, including the giant hornbill. Dugout canoes traverse the northern Rapti River, home to crocodiles. Inside the park is Balmiki Ashram, a Hindu pilgrimage site.

The people inhabiting the Chitwan District are predominantly peasant farmers cultivating mainly food and cash crops such as rice, maize, wheat, beanslentilsmustard and vegetables. Chitwan has a particularly rich flora and fauna. Nepal's first national park, the Chitwan National Park together with the adjacent Parsa National Park support a species diversity much higher than any other on the Indian subcontinent. Rare species include Bengal tigergharialrhinoleopardsmugger crocodileIndian rock python and several species of deer. The protected areas are guarded by a battalion of the Nepal Army and patrolled by anti-poaching units. Our team will visit the school, take a safari tour, and visit the park via an elephant ride. 

 

 

Today, around 170 million people around the world have become addicted to drugs and the number is growing. In Nepal, almost 200 thousand people have already become addicted to drugs. Among them 80% use drugs at the age of 13-19 years old. Almost 40,000 women have also fallen prey to this epidemic. Statistics show that high school and college students are the most vulnerable to this problem. Addiction is the root cause to life threatening diseases such as Hepatitis B, C, T.B, HIV, Cancer, etc. Similarly, people die of overdoses and are likely to put their lives at risk. This problem contributes to an increased crime rate. It has become a fact that 10-35 crimes committed by persons that become addicted. When I travel to Kathmandu, Recovery Nepal is a focus. I work with Binod Aryal ricrose_nepal@yahoo.com who is an Addictions Counselor working at AASURA and inpatient Drug Rehabilitation Center. The Center is managed by Nepal Police Wives' Association.” I present workshops to the staff concerning topics of, The Disease Concept, The Ethical Treatment of Clients in an Inpatient Treatment Center in the USA, and the Recovery Process. I am fortunate to be able to meet with the clients in this and other treatment centers across Kathmandu to talk about the Recovery Process and using 12 step programs as a tool for sustained recovery. Your donations to New U Recovery Inc. help to by AA Big Books, pamphlets on recovery, and recovery birthday chips, and to carry the message of recovery to this region of the world.
