MakedoTell 2018 : Nepal

In January 2018 we will be spending all our time in Nepal;  returning to continue the work with some familiar communities and organisations, and starting up projects with new ones.

Our program has been developed in response to needs expressed by our co-workers in Nepal. We have been invited to provide our programs in cancer care, mental health (suicide prevention), in schools, and in higher education.  We will be working directly in the community, as well as training social and health care workers, community leaders and students in arts practice for community development and wellbeing.

Community leaders receive training so that skills and projects can be adapted, owned and run by, and within, particular communities.



Where in Nepal?

  • at the BS Koirala Cancer Centre in Chitwan where we spent a few days earlier this year running a program in the Paediatric Oncology Ward.   This time our stay will be longer.
  • at the Nepal School of Social Work.   Our sixth time at this school.   We expect to the working in the field with some of their students.
  • with a range of schools and communities in partnership with a new organisation (to us) PsychDesk, who are working hard to raise awareness and help prevent death by suicide.
