Volunteer Stories

Proud to have led this fine group of 8 dedicated volunteers to Udaipur, India to work with restorationworksinternational on the restoration of a centuries old Haveli, repurposing it into a community and heritage center that supports migrant woman laborers and will provide a place to make and sell traditional Rajasthani arts and crafts made and sourced locally. Here we are on day one, along with our construction supervisor, taking a much needed break on the front stoop of the Bichli Haveli, Udaipur, India. #preservation #historicpreservation #restoration #historicpreservation #india #udaipur #restorationworksinternational #communitydevelopment #bichlihaveliproject #internationaldevelopment #globalheritage #oneworld #rwivolunteerstories #volunteer #volunteervacations #ngo #nonprofit #philanthropy #dogood #socialgood #giveback #payitforward #karma ...

I’d like to share some sad news, especially for my friends who have been with me on one of the many trips I’ve led to the Himalayan mountains of Nepal, with restorationworksinternational , to work on the restoration of the century’s old Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Chairro gompa.

The beautiful neighboring village of Tukche was recently devastated by unprecedented monsoon rains. This picture shows Lama Sashi and myself in front of Sashi’s ancestral home in Tukche, several years ago.

If you would like to learn more and contribute to the rebuilding efforts see the GoFundMe link in my bio.

Namaste friends! #chhairogompa #tukche #nepal #himalayas #gofundme #tibetanbuddhist #mustangnepal #mustangregion

Today it rained and snowed in our corner of the Nepali Himalayas, so we stayed inside, painted pictures, uncovered ancient sculptures with Lama Shashi and Chakra.
