Last year I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Nepal on work experience with my father, who was working with maths teachers in the area. Just days before leaving, I was trying to find out if there were any charities I could visit near Kathmandu, so I visited The Humanitarian Centre in Cambridge to make some enquiries. I was amazed to discover that The Mountain Trust, which has its base in Great Shelford (where I live!) had projects in Nepal.
In the summer of 2013 Ramyia, a medical student at Oxford University, went to Nepal with The Mountain Trust. Ramyia 's experiences led to her developing a curriculum for our new Health and Hygiene Teaching Programme.
