A Travelogue of Nepal and the Nagajuna Modern Boarding School
By Dorien van Heerden (Paperback, 15 pages, 2012, $10.00)
Join six high school students on a community service trip to Nepal, as they hide through Himalayas, visit cultural sites and volunteer at the Nagajuna Modern Boarding School for poor, refugee and orphan children.
All proceeds from this booklet and related photo exhibition “Journey of Hope” will be donated to The Nagajuna Trust, the British Charity that funds the school. As of spring 2012, the Nagajuna Trust is nearly 75 percent of its fundraising goal of £100,000 for building a new school that would hold 200 students.
