The sense of Community involvement and presence at a SchoolBag distribution in Kumbeswory School, Nepal.

In many of the countries where we operate, the SchoolBag distribution is a ceremony that involves the whole community in the village. The celebration can last many hours with multiple speeches from all members within the society, prayers, candle, and incense burning to acknowledge the Gods and performances by the children all help commemorate the occasion. In Nepal, two students are chosen to address the crows and explain the story of School in a Bag – one speaks in Nepalese and the other speaks in English. In this clip, a visiting team of volunteers were also involved in handing out the SchoolBags to the children.
