Another day of good old fashioned but satisfying hard graft.

Football is an international language and loved by all. Overnight hotel.
You should start to see your team’s work come together and the shape of the building slowly taking place. An open mind and enthusiasm is key; every task you undertake whether it is sifting sand, removing or placing dirt, mixing cement by hand or passing buckets of mortar to another team member contributes to the bigger picture of providing sheltered education. It is a tremendously inspiring process to be involved in. Overnight hotel.
Today will be your last day on the worksite. You will have forged new friendships within your team and the community, so emotions will be running high as the time comes to say goodbye. The evening may bring an exchange of cultural shows, whether in song dance or dominoes. Overnight hotel.
After an early breakfast it will be time to say goodbye to the community and start your transfer back to Kathmandu. Take time on the transfer to reflect on your time in the community and your achievements. Your final night will be spent in Kathmandu in the hotel.
