Volunteer’s Day – ‘Sharing Smiles’ E-mail

Israel’s Embassy in Nepal, as a part of its ‘Sharing Smile’ project, took children from Child Protection Home, Siphal, for wall climbing at Thamel, Kathmandu on 4 October.

Twenty six children and teenagers aged 11 to 22 were among the wall climbers. The embassy was joined by the Israeli volunteers from Tevel, an Israeli NGO that were staying in Nepal.

Similarly, younger children aged 3 to 10 from the Child Protection Home were taken for a zoo visit. Shalom Club members joined hands for this visit with the embassy. Shalom Club is the club that consists of Nepalese who have visited Israel for study, training or attended a seminar.

The children were presented with gifts including balloons, geometry boxes, kites and thread rollers (changa and lattai) for the Nepalese festival of ‘Dashain’.

The embassy organized these programmes on the happy occasion of ‘Dashain’ and hopes that these events have helped bring smiles in their innocent faces. Ambassador of Israel to Nepal, Hanan Goder said: “I am happy and proud to be associated with these children and their lively activities. Being with them gives each one of us the feeling of contribution and ‘smiling hearts’!”
