Helping Hands had the amazing opportunity to partner with some locals looking to make a huge difference in their community. We were able to be a part of building a community center 6 hours outside the capital of Kathmandu in the mountains of Sulsing. It was a long 4×4 journey up into the hills. The building location was about 7,500 ft in elevation and the trekkers lodge accommodations was almost 9,000 ft in elevation. The people were amazingly hospitable, loving and kind. It is a trip of a lifetime with many more partnership opportunities to come.
