For twenty five days in January, a group of fifteen students from Tacoma’s School of the Arts and Science and Math Institute travelled to Nepal for a Service and Study Tour. While in Nepal, the group engaged in a series of volunteer and tourist activities. The students travelled from the highly populated capital, Kathmandu, to a smaller city named Hetauda, then to a rural village in the eastern corner of Nepal named Chaksibote, with multiple stops in between. In Chaksibote, the students taught English and experienced village life, and in Hetauda, they volunteered at a safe home for women and girls at risk for being trafficked. On the tourist part of the trip, the students hiked to the Himalayas, rode
elephants, and went on a safari.

This Service and Study Tour was a once in a lifetime experience for Ella. She hopes to join
the Peace Corps and become a civil rights lawyer.
