When Tessa told me she was going to Nepal this Summer, I was like Oh, wow that’s great! You’ve been out of the country before right? Like, in that picture where your back is to the camera and you’re in a jungle?
Turns out she was in Washington in the above pic.
But this time she is really going for it! Yep, Tessa and Taylor are going abroad with Global Grizzlies.
And when I say abroad, I mean Nepal, baby!
They’ll be in Nepal with the Global Grizzlies student group for the entire month of July where they will spend their time doing volunteer medical work and building medical centers.
Did you know that 90 percent of Nepal’s doctors are located in the biggest city, Kathmandu?
If a Nepal resident needs medical attention, they must commute to Kathmandu. And sometimes the only way to do this is by plane or a five-day walk. Since medical assistance is so difficult and near impossible for some resident’s to access, many people die of trivial illness’.
The goal of Global Grizzlies is to build medical posts between Kathmandu and the smaller communities so health care is more accessible.
In addition to making a huge change in the lives of Nepal citizens, Tessa and Taylor will live in conditions far outside their comfort zones.
They’ll be living with host families who speak no english in one room homes made of bamboo and mud. They’ll say good-bye to running water and there will not be a Big Dipper up the street. In Nepal, fruit is a delicacy. And the diet is basically rice and lentils for daysssssssssssss.
Tessa and Taylor will return to our campus as well-rounded women with fresh perspectives and hearts full of joy because they are making a huge difference for people in need!
So do you wanna support Tessa, Taylor and the global grizzlies?
Wanna eat some wings?
