Nepal World Challenge Expedition
In October 2014, Sensei Jordan and 21 other pupils of Dowdales School will be heading over to Nepal for a World Challenge expedition.
This entails a 6 day hike up the Annapurna Mountain Range and then a project within the local community. We will be going into a local school or orphanage to meet the needs of the local community by leading a sustainable project, such as helping build basic amenities, providing equipment such as paper and pens, renovating classrooms and also helping teach the children whilst there.
