Aim : Distribution of our much awaited new Five Person Dome Tents. 140, 5 person tent for the houses and 20, 2 person (ONE PLANET TENTS for Teachers).


We started our journey around 10 am in the morning as the village is located pretty close to Kathmandu and the drive being not too far. Todays team members were our General Secretary Ramesh Mahat, Gopal, Achyut, Ram and myself.

Today was an extremely hot day the temperature was somewhere around 32 °C. We got to the village around midday and the village folks gradually came by to collect their tents. Our 2 field staff Gopal and Ram did the demonstration on as to how to pitch the tent and how to look after it. It was really interesting for us to see all the villagers show so much interest during the demonstration, as this is something (dome tents) that most of them have never seen apart from receiving one today.

We gave away 140 tents (5 person tents) and another 20 (2 person tents) for the school teachers. After which there were lots of happy faces all around. Our team also received loads of thanks and well wishes form the villagers for the special gifts that NGTF were able to organise for them. With the help of several of our donors at:http://igg.me/at/ZrIYGV4p0kA, in these crucial times when people have no homes, we have most definitely made a difference.

We would specially like to give a BIG THANKS to ALL OUR DONORS from all over the world and a special mention to Mr. Yat who has been working tirelessly in the background in Hong Kong making all this happen for NGTF (Thank you Yat). Mr. Yat's generosity in donating funds towards the 565 Dome Tents, meant for all the Nepali people who have lost their homes during the earthquake on 25th April and 12th May will surely not be forgotten.
