Shopping Trip, Nepal

Above are some of the items we sell.

I'm off to Nepal March 1st to look for new items for our business,

Hopefully, I will also be able to visit a village school while I am there. Several people have asked me if they could directly contribute to a school in Nepal. This is the opportunity, I am going over myself and will be handing a contribution directly to the school for operating costs. I would also like to take some books with me:

Picture books of how things work. If they can't read it, they should be able to figure out what's going on by the diagrams and drawings.

'Popular mechanics,' very practical books on construction.
Health and Biology books
Junior and Senior level Math: Algebra, Trig, Calculus, Geometry
Art Books

We want the kids to see what students are learning in different parts of the world. So if you have a text that's not too old and in good condition, send it along.
Of course, cash is easy to carry and they can purchase many interesting books right in Kathmandu if you would rather do that.

If you are interested in contributing, contact me at


*I'll take a camera this time and bring you back some photos.
