There is always a chance of getting injured while running. We want to make sure our Girls in Action are prepared with knowledge and skills if something happens. Therefore, we organized an hour-long first aid training to 20 participants who are part of our Girls In Action(GIA) program. GIA is a program run by Wide Open Vistas under which out of different activities, girls participate in running, hiking etc. This would not have been possible without Jessie and her partner who led the entire class.
Dr. Jessie Gehner is an Emergency physician with special training in wilderness medicine. She practices in Virginia, US currently and has been to Nepal multiple times. It was very generous of her to take time out of her busy schedule to share her skills and create an interesting and interactive environment for learning. Thank you so much on behalf of WOV! Thanks also to Dr. Pranav for the coordination.
We keep our administrative costs below 5% of our total budget. Our board and most of our staff are volunteers.
We focus on long-term and sustainable outcomes that will make a lasting impact in Nepal.
Our approach is culturally sensitive and recognizes the importance of working with the community.
