Inspired by Nepal, a Langtang Ago
BY BRIAN SCOTT PETERSON
Prior to establishing himself in Tokyo over a decade ago, Brian Scott Peterson made a trip half way around the world to, in his words "the mystifyingly scenic", country of Nepal. In a wonderlust quest for "adventure of most epic proportions", Peterson set off from age-old city Kathmandu, long-hauling across treacherous trail to the Himalayan kingdoms highest peaks, to the remote mountainous village of Langtang, a journey against all others after would be measured.
Heartbroken to see the recent devastation and disastrous loss of the place that forever changed his life, he offers this emotional tale of his sojourn there, simply as a starting point.
No stranger to disaster response, Peterson hopes to eventually repeat in Nepal his successful volunteer effort from Japan, the family photo rebuilding project Photohoku.
Finally he asks, "How can the tried and true creativity in the greater PechaKucha community rally to share stories and support for Nepal?"

Rebuilding the Future of Nepal
BY NEVO SHINAAR
ON SEP 29, 2015
"We cannot control nature. It does what it does. However we can control human nature and our ability to work together in the face of these odds."
In Rebuilding the Future of Nepal, from our Inspire Nepal Channel, Nevo Shinaar shares the story of his involvement in the Earthquake in Nepal in 2015. After committing for 10 month's work as a volunteer in Nepal, aimed to help rural communities become more resilient to globalisation and external changes, and to enhance their quality of life, Shinaar had such a meaningful experience that he decided to stay longer and facilitate a new group of volunteers. Within another 8 months, the ravaging earthquake sent the entire country into a state of disarray particularly the very communities with with whom he'd be working. In trying to address the needs of these communities in ways that were most relevant and effective he learned some life lessons, and shares them with us here.
