Prisoners Assistance Nepal ….. A breath of fresh air

Meeting Indira who established and runs PAN was a real honour – she has such an amazing energy and spoke with such passion and common sense it really was inspiring. The work she does campaigning for women in prisons to be able to keep their children with them as well as the home and support centre she runs for children whose mothers are in prison is nothing short of amazing. She has also helped a group of young men establish and run a mountain biking company that do tours of Kathmandu and furthers afield – well worth checking out if you have time to spare whilst you are in Kathmandu and a great way to get to know Nepal better – it’s found just past Sams bar – keep heading out of Thamel and its on your left

The atmosphere in the home was welcoming and had a warmth and homeliness about it providing a safe space for young people to be young people and grow up in a loving environment. The focus in every room is on learning through play and enjoyment and developing a sense of respect and pride to take into the world …..I’m looking forward to returning and seeing more of the work being done by Indira and her team …..
