EARTHQUAKES AND SCHOOLS SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Due to its geographic location and alpine landscape, Nepal has five climatic zones, reaching from the tropical to the arctic zone within the Himalaya mountains. The geographical location not only enables a rich biodiversity but also introduces several dangers. As Nepal is located within two major tectonic plates, the country is highly prone to earthquakes. The recurring earthquakes have devastating consequences and present a significant hurdle to the economic development of Nepal.
CPCS hosts regular trainings in schools on safety protocols during earthquakes and provides important first aid training.

VISITING HKPA

Official Visit (International Network of Street Workers) to a very nice and so well organized organization, Hong Kong PlayGround Association (HKPA). A very impressive work done here and since 1933 !!! Thanks, Lapman Wan for your welcoming and kindness! Further partnerships to be created soon, and maybe a common research to understand better children and youth in street situations in Asia (and maybe elsewhere !)

BHAI TIKA

On October 30, Nepalese people were celebrating Bhai Tika, the last and most important day of the Tihar festival. It is the festival of lights, and diyas (oil lamps usually made of clay) are lit everywhere in Nepal during the night. Moreover, during Bhai Tika, brotherhood is being celebrated. Siblings put a tika on their brother’s foreheads to bless them with a long life and to thank them for the protection they provide.
