Celebration of Cooperation through the Arts
Backpacking 4 Betty hosted a 2 day event in Syangja at the school where we started our program over a year ago. The event was to celebrate cooperation with the schools and successfully placing water filters in 90 schools in Syangja district.
Twelve schools participated in our 3 part competition- singing, dancing and painting. There were Nepalese judges which included professional musicians, a music video choreographer and a professional artist. Prizes included money for the schools 1st-4th as well as first place prizes for the students participating which were instruments, costumes and art supplies.
Often music and art is overlooked in Nepal since other needs are more pressing. We decided to give the students an event where they could showcase their talents and feed their soul.
