2019 Rotaract Friendship Exchange Trip to Nepal

Six Rotary District 7475 Rotaract members recently had a life-changing experience when they traveled to Nepal to distribute donated school supplies and engage in community projects.

The students, Jeremy (Hightstown), Aiden and Collin Nodoro (Martinsville), Abby and Emily Fabiano (Somervillen), and Manuel Ramirez (Bound Brook), are all members of the Rotary District 7475 Rotaract members. They traveled to Nepal, January 2- 14, 2019 carrying 300 pounds of school supplies, which they donated to various schools in the region.


The supplies had been collected through fundraising efforts at the College in conjunction with the The Asha Project and members of the community.
While in Nepal, the students participated in Rotaract community projects that included painting benches and walls. In conjunction with the ASHA (Nepali word for “Hope”) project, the students also visited many schools and community people in handing our sweaters and blankets.


As part of the trip, the Rotaractg members attended club meetings and projects in Pokhara, Patan, Kathmandu, Gorkha and Lamjung. They also met with representatives of Rotaract Nepal and other community groups; toured temples, schools and hiked the region.
Rotaract member Abby Fabiano recalls many memorable moments in this trip, especially seeing little kid’s big smiles. “Imagine that a simple pencil and a notebook can bring such a wonderful smile”, said Abby. Despite the language barriers, Abby said “Giving a small gift to children was one of the most impactful experiences, just being able to communicate human to human.”


As members of the Rotary District 7475 Rotaract Club, students are given the opportunity to serve the community and learn about leadership, civic engagement and responsible citizenship.

Mission of humanity

Traveling to Nepal for Daniel was a mission of humanity. The language spoken there differed from his own. He had to adjust to eating the Nepalese food, so different from what he was used to in America. To a foreigner’s mind, the notion of an exotic locale at the top of the world incited mystery. Seeing the cracks in the roads, encountering the dust, walking among the ancient architecture in a completely different culture could have been very uncomfortable for Daniel. But that was not the case. The Nepalese culture did not shock, and any discomfort from a long journey was washed away by the love and gratitude of the people.

Any of those differences were superficial in light of the welcome in Nepal. In fact, Daniel reported not noticing the differences till returning home. For example, most of the food in America is processed while what he ate in Nepal was mostly grown locally and prepared by those most likely to eat it. The Nepali life struck him as more wholesome after he came home.

While there Daniel delivered school supplies to students. Those supplies did improve conditions for students but, more importantly, were a gesture that made ripples through the community. His acts of kindness forged connections with people and benefited people more than with tangible goods.

As Daniel said, “At the school for blind, I befriended a particular group of kids. We hung out and they played on my guitar. All along I couldn’t help wondering what it will be like to meet them again in a few years time. Its true I have many new friends, and they all have brought me wisdom, but above all, there was one who has impacted me in ways that cannot simply be put in words. I will not give his name, so I will call him the ‘man on the moon.’ Like a brother who I have never had. Humble as a man can be. Any lick of avarice, if present, was covered by a pure gratitude and welcomeness for life. If I could give one phrase to describe his air, it would be, ‘hard work in silence, success is your noise.’ I feel that the seed we, the Rotaract clubs and other friends, have planted, will provide a fruitful future.”

Daniel’s life was touched by his service in Nepal, just as he touched the lives of so many with his generosity of time and effort. If you would like to experience joy of meeting someone in an exotic land, and helping others, please contact the Friends of Nepal – New Jersey’s The Asha Project.

Marcel Gorka’s story.

15800641_1868817960020191_717243961947118815_oFrom a young age Marcel felt the need to help others. In the seventh grade he would volunteer at his church, becoming a tradition of service that continued through high school and into college. Now a graduate of the Raritan Valley Community College, who worked with children at the local YMCA. His studies and work augment the love of helping others.

After a chance encounter with Dr. Tulsi, Marcel learned of a greater opportunity to impact the lives of others. Till now Marcel’s giving focused on his local community. Through the Friends of Nepal – NJ’s ASHA PROJECT, Marcel embarked on a journey to help those in need across the globe. Joining the Asha Project, he will help bring hope back to Nepal. ASHA , which means hope in Nepali, provides relief to people in Nepal by not only providing micro credit loans to hard working people throughout Nepal, but by organizing volunteers, like Marcel, to help rebuild homes destroyed in the massive 2015 earthquake. Most of the nation was affected and many people still need homes, and children desperately need schools. Marcel and the Asha Project will bring them much needed supplies for schools and homes.

Marcel took part in 2017 Humanitarian Mission to Nepal and made connections that will last a lifetime. As Marcel said, “I am very excited to go to Nepal and experience their rich culture, to see Mount Everest from a distance, and meet new and exciting people.”

The Asha Project is grateful to Marcel and our other volunteers for their commitment to improving the lives of people in Nepal. If you would like to contribute, like Marcel, please reach out to the Asha Project at http://www.theashaproject.org/contact.html to find out more about how you can make a difference.

Ryan Galdamez’s Story

First of all I want to say Thank you to everyone who hosted us. You guys did an amazing job of making us feel at home. I truly enjoyed my time in Nepal and I will absolutely take my family there one day.

b

The Rotaract Club of New Road Pokhara members were awesome they did a great job of showing us the beautiful city of Pokhara. I was able to get very close to them because they were so loving and caring. One thing I learned from them was that they are very welling to help no matter in what way. For example they all were very aware of us and took care of us in whichever way they could. In Pokhara we did a lot; for example, the first two days we went to the 9th Rotaract Conference which was full of very talented young adults who are very willing to help the community. The next few days we went sightseeing, painting and delivered school supplies to a few schools. I remember giving the students the school supplies and the smile that came to their face really made me happy in the inside. I remember a quote I heard in Parbat by Antim Gurung and it stated, “You could go to a movie and have 3 hours of joy, but helping others is a happiness that will last a lifetime” and I truly believed those words. I also remember Hiking to the top of hill and seeing a big Buddha statue and then going up the stairs and seeing the whole city of Pokhara and my breath being taken away by the beauty of what I was seeing. Pokhara had so much to offer from a Five Star hotel to camping. The people that hosted us really did a great job of showing us what the city Pokhara really has to offer.

The last two days we stayed In Kathmandu with the Rotaract club of Rudramati. They also hosted us very good. I remember when we got there they took us to eat at a place where they order MoMo’s for us and they tasted very good and also sausage which was very good as well. They also took us to the Asha Project of the constructions of apartments and the painting of a park where many people go to hangout and have fun. I also remember eating where the construction site was and just seeing all the people there helping and doing a small part to help a city devastated by an earthquake two years ago. I also remember going to two schools and giving them schools supplies and they both received them with open arms. Kathmandu really showed me how close people get when there is devastation and no matter how bad the situation is life still goes on.

I learned a lot about myself in this trip because I was able to step out of my comfort zone and really engage with people I have never met before. But this trip really helped me come out of my shell and now I feel like I can take on any task put in front of me. Our friends from Kathmandu and Pokhara did such a great job of showing us Nepal that I feel like if I would have gone a lone and had done everything by myself I would have not experienced Nepal as I did with everyone that hosted us. This trip really made me appreciate what I have in my Country and because of this trip I was able to open my eyes to see what is really happening around the world. Now I have more motivation to help out our community and communities around the world because I know there is a lot of work to be done in order to get this world into shape.

The Asha project’s goal is to  help today’s youth to become a Global Citizen.

Broaden international understanding
Explore NEW CULTURE
Build enduring friendships
Establish a foundation for peace and greater understanding
Gain opportunities for active project involvement and support
Learn about a region’s people, food, languages, customs, and history
Finding partnership for new projects.

The Asha project’s goal is to  help today’s youth to become a Global Citizen.

Changing Lives one at a time

The Asha Project changes lives. Helping to rebuild homes and delivering school supplies impacts the people of Nepal immediately for the better. The Nepal Earthquake that struck Nepal in May, 2015 killed over nine thousand people, injured more than twenty-two thousand, and left hundreds of thousands of people homeless. Whole villages were leveled. The Asha Project works to help these people still struggling to rebuild.

More than reconstructing buildings, the project enriches lives by making connections between volunteers and those helped. The Friends of Nepal -Nj’s ASHA PROJECT organizes trips for people to participate in the GAP PROGRAM. While it sounds like a major endeavor, Americans traveling half-way around the globe to help people they never met, it is also something elegantly simple, one person easing the suffering of another.

Sebastian is one such person. He traveled to Nepal in 2017 to serve. While there Sebastian helped deliver school supplies. Many children now have a better chance of getting the quality education needed for them to succeed in life. Sebastian sowed the seeds for the future of Nepal. One of the highlights of his trip took place about an hour outside of Pokhara. The children waited hours in the hot sun waiting for over forty bags of school supplies. After waiting for hours the children looked weary. It was almost a test of endurance for them to sit there. 

Then the time came. A ceremony surrounded the gifting of each package to the children. As the ceremony started the fatigue dropped away and both children and parents perked up with renewed energy. The happiness and gratitude beamed from their faces. The ceremony varied from school to school but each reflected the joy and humble thanks for the aid. These moments resonated within Sebastian, enriching his life.

The connections made between Sebastian and the people he helped, in many ways, are more important than the supplies given out or the construction. The overwhelming kindness shown by people like Sujan Regmi, who helped organize the trip in Nepal, made the trip possible. Sujan performed every act with joy, from orchestrating where volunteers would eat to making sure they could attend church services. The warm welcomes made the service no work at all, but acts of love. 

As Sebastian put it,“We sat down and began waiting for the bus and occasionally snapped some pictures of the people around us. Two young girls began to fill around 20 empty liters full of water. After a few moments I joined in and began helping them. The one aspect of this act of kindness was that there was no formal thank you’s, no picture taking, no formal ceremony ( which were all good and healthy); just a human helping another human. This moment was why I went on the trip; I have found that on this trip the informal acts of kindness not recognized by all seemed to be the most impactful moments in my own life.”

The Asha Project brings people together to change lives. The help that volunteers give improve the lives of children in Nepal, and it imparts deep connections to those who give their time and energy. Please reach out to the Friends of Nepal – NJ or The Asha Project to see how you can participate.

Goodwill Ambassadors of the Asha Project to visit Nepal

The Friends of the Asha Project team joined forces to take a “Global Action”, in January of 2016. Through the help of the Rotary Club of Branchburg and the Friends of Nepal-NJ, The Asha Project was able to raise funds to help many schools in Nepal to restore their buildings, purchase supplies, make technology upgrades, and provide a water supply.

Since 2015, after the major earthquake, we have planned four Humanitarian missions to Nepal and send two groups of Rotaract students to help the earthquake victims.

2018 Team members

Now, we are working with local schools to raise funds to build a school in Nepal and give opportunities for our students to learn about 21st-century life and career skills as well as to engage as active citizens in a dynamic global society and to successfully meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st-century global village.

A tour to Nepal is always exciting, as you can have so many things to explore in this tiny country. You can immerse in the century-old temples in the medieval city squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur; experience the breathtaking views of the Himalayas in a trekking tour to Annapurna  or other spectacular mountains in the Himalaya region. For wildlife and environmental lovers, exciting jungle safari at Chitwan National Park and their eco system is perfectly cut out, while a tour to Buddha’s birth place, Lumbini to learn about Buddha’s life and the development of Buddhism is an exciting venture.

Our 2019 Humanitarian Mission team of 6 will visit Kathmandu, Patan, Pokhara, Gorkha and Lumgung.  They will work in collaboration with Rotary District 3292’s Rotaract team and with their SAP projects.

If you like to support this 2019 Humanitarian Mission team members with school supplies, blanket distribution and others,  You can make a donation to our GOFundMe page.  or you can donate with the Asha Project.

With your SUPPORT, we can make lives better in our community and around the world. Please give the GIFT of HOPE today and together we can keep Doing Good in the World.

Supporting our Veterans


BRANCHBURG — Rotary club of Branchburg teamed-up again to support veterans by donating $70.000 to seven different Veterans organizations.
It’s become our tradition, for the past several years, Rotary club of Branchburg have collaborated with various Veterans organizations in support of the nation’s veterans. It’s our way to say “thank you” to our vets for providing the freedom we enjoy.
With surviving veterans of World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam, it continues, along with thousands more who served in the Middle East and in other conflicts, there are literally thousands of veterans in the United States, too many of whom have fallen on hard times since their return to civilian life.

Branchburg Rotary Donates$70,000  to Veterans organizations during their annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Dinner and Service of Gratitude.


“There are many challenges facing our veterans when they return from active duty,” notes Joe Horner, Veterans Program chair.

“Examples are readjusting to civilian life and returning to the workforce. Sadly, many of the jobs they held before leaving to serve their country are no longer available, which makes the prospects of finding meaningful work more difficult than ever,” he points out.
“To help in this time of need, Rotary club of Branchburg, our community, and many other Veterans Service organizations wanted to make a positive difference in their lives as one small way to show our gratitude for the sacrifices these heroes have made on behalf of all Americans.”
For out-of-work veterans, food, shelter and clothing are often quite difficult to come by, particularly when it comes to seasonal items, such as winter coats and jackets. That was the motivation that launched the initial collection drive several years ago.


“Support for this worthy cause has grown each year,” says Joe. “Many people came together with timely donations to show how much we care about our veterans.”


The Rotary club of Branchburg was founded in 1988, has been doing many community service project. Rotary just celebrated its 30th anniversary. This year Rotary club of Branchburg raised more than $100,000 to help local veterans and the club distributed more than $71,000 dollars to seven different veterans organizations who helps veterans directly during their 17th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Dinner and Service of Gratitude. The Veterans organizations are Operation ChillOut, Operation Sisterhood, Frontline Arts, Operation Jersey Care, Welcome Home Vets, NJ Veterans Network and Horses for Forces.


Rotary International is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and works to build peace and goodwill in the world.
Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 34,200 clubs across the globe.

MHA PUJA (Self Worshiping) A Newari tradition.

As part of a unique old tradition, ethnic Newar community in New Jersey celebrated Mha Puja or the self worshiping on Saturday, November 10th.
Mha puja, (Body worship) the worship of the inner self, is a unique tradition of the Newari community of Nepal. Newa people believe that one needs to understand and respect oneself before he/she can understand others. Mha puja (is purification, strengthening, empowering the soul and understanding of oneself). Mha puja exposes the relationship of a person with the surrounding nature and the cosmos. Mha Puja, which is marked annually during the Kathmandu’s second biggest festival Tihar. The day is celebrated as a part of celebrations of their New Year called Nepal Sambat as per the lunar calendar.

During the festival, family members gather and sit on the floor and worship their bodies with a belief that it will purify the body, mind and soul for enlightenment. They use the elements like flowers, fruits, oil lamps, nuts and sweets to worship after creating a colorful Mandala, circle of life.


Manda (Mandala) is an essential part of Mha puja celebration. First the floor is purified by sprinkling holy water. Next Mandalas are created on the floor in front of the row of seats for each family member. The total number of Mandalas exceeds the number of people in the household by three. One at the top of the line, which is usually smaller in size and separate from the rest, is for the House-God. This is followed by one for each and every member of the household and two additional ones at the end that are at right angles to the main row. The last two Mandalas are for the ever-watching Yamaraj and Jamaraj, the ambassadors of Death who are always ready to take sinners to hell.

 


Oil marks last longer just as Itah (oiled strand of strings) burns longer. Circles signify completeness. On the top of the oil rings a beautiful and artistic geometrical shape which constitutes the core of the Mandala, is created. The markings are done in yellow Potaye (yellow mustard powder). On the outside is a large ring enclosing a smaller one within which two squares are overlapped to form eight triangular shapes. Abhir (vermilion powder) is spread along the various Potaye lines. A handful of paddy and rice mixture is placed on each of the four triangles along the north-south and east-west lines with respect to the worshiper (worshiped) and one at the center of the Mandala.

 


Next comes the very important offer of light. Two Itaa (hand-woven cotton strands soaked in oil) about two and a half feet long, are lighted at each end and offered to the worshiped who accepts by chanting in Sanskrit – “Swah prakashah mahatejo sarbapatti bidapaham. Sabhayabhyamtaram jyoti deepoyam pratigrihyatam.” Newars use Sanskrit words during the worship. The light is accepted to enhance one’s inner supreme brightness and to drive away any possible problems. The blessing is for the person to be able to keep shining bright like the burning Itaa for a long, long time. The four lighted ends occupy the locations of the four outer paddy/rice lumps in the Mandala. Soaking of Itaa with mustard oil makes it last longer. The lights are kept on through the completion of the whole Mha puja process. Light, which is considered as one of the five elements used to create the universe (the other four are air, water, earth, and sky), has a special meaning in worships. The offer of light spiritually brightens the inner self, makes it more powerful and keeps anything evil at bay.

 

Sagun is another very important part of Mha Puja. Offering of Swaga (Sagun) to a person is usually made to to a person for their extraordinary and meaningful achievement. Dhau Swaga on the forehead unveils the shining and cheerful face enjoying a great celebration. Next comes the all important Khen (egg) Sagan. Khen Sagan constitutes the offering of Nyata (the five elements of egg, fish, Rakshi, bada and meat).. Nyata (five) signifies the five elements of water, fire, earth, air and space.

 


The final purification of the soul and the blessings come from the Naki (female head of the community) with a pouring of a mixture of paddy, flowers, pieces of fruits, abhir (vermilion powder), aakhen (hand-milled rice) and taye in a Patthi (bronze container about a gallon size). All during the puja, the light keep burning, the incense keeps spreading fragrance and the colorful Mandalas keep cheering the mood. Completion of Mha puja is achieved after the Naki drags tuphi (broom) from House-God’s Mandala all the way down to Jamaraj’s Mandala.

Shilpy Malla, a Hillsborough resident attended the event with her husband and young son. “This is my first time to experience such unique celebration with FONNJ family. I feel lucky to celebrate this special Mha Puja with my family,” Malla said.


The participants also enjoyed homemade special dishes like Sanya Khuna, PauuKwa, MeeKwa, Sisa pusha, special sweets, Pukula and Thou (special brewed liquor, popular among Newar community). Young kids prepared Masala pow (dreid fruits and sweets) and helped to prepare Mandala – circle of life.

“The main purpose of this event was to teach our young generation about our culture and tradition”, said, FONNJ Vice President Roshan Karmacharya.
Surendra Man Singh, said, “We are very rich in culture and tradition thus the participation of young generation in such rituals strengthen the ties between community and culture of birth. It is an integral part of culture preservation.”

Empowering Women in Nepal through MicroCredit.

Our past programs have proven that one small loan can change a family.  Several loans can strengthen a community and Thousands of small loans can transform an entire Village.

 
With the Rotary International’s $95,000 matching grant, Rotary club of Branchburg and Rotary club of Mahabouddha in Nepal, is changing many peoples lives in Nepal.  With a small $500 loan can buy a new tool, a machine, or a shop in the marketplace—millions of the world’s poor and low-income people have taken advantage of small loans to improve their lives. Over the past three decades, people have used these loans, known as Micro Credit, to launch new enterprises, create jobs and help economies to flourish. Poor people have proved time and again that they are able to repay these loans on time.

 
What is it? 
The Asha Project’s Micro Credit program is founded on a novel idea that education and financial support, not charity, provides the surest way out of poverty for poor families, Rotary Districts 7510 USA and 3292 Nepal in collaboration with the Friends of Nepal- NJ established the
“Legacy of Hope Micro Credit Project” to provide Nepal earthquake victims with $100,000 worth of micro credit loans. As a result, these people will gain knowledge and a source of income for themselves and their families.
 
The micro credit project has been empowering and providing hope for hundreds of people in Nepal to take control of their lives, improve their family’s standard of living and provide what every family wants for their children — hope for a brighter future through better nutrition, health care and most importantly education.
Our Rotary clubs are working on various ways to alleviate local poverty, one of which is to provide loans for disadvantaged people. Micro loans are powerful instruments for reducing poverty by enabling people to increase income and reduce their vulnerability to economic stress. Micro loans are also a powerful catalyst for empowering women.
 
For the past ten years our project  has helped to provide loans to more than 500 families.  The Branchburg Rotary is providing real hope and opportunity for a better future for the people of Nepal.  If you like to learn more about the project, please contact Past District Governor Dr. Tulsi Maharjan at trmaharjan@gmail.com

Thank you for providing HOPE & OPPORTUNITIES

Dear Friends of the Asha Project,

When the earthquake hit Nepal in April of 2015, many lives were affected. Not only did people lose their homes, businesses, and livelihoods – many people lost their families. This is what happened with three sisters we helped. After their father passed away, their mother left them because they did not have male family member. The earthquake destroyed their home, and these three courageous sisters were left with nowhere to live, no family, and a community in ruins. When we heard of this story, we at The Asha Project decided to do something about it.

With the help of the local Rotary organization and individuals like you, we raised the money to finance and provide manpower to build a new home for them. We also gave them 8 goats, which gave them the opportunity to make a continual income.

They are now able to live in a secure home and have a renewed hope for their future. Successful projects like this drive us to do more for the people of Nepal!

You can help us bring hope to the people of Nepal! Your support is crucial to our mission, and we could not do it without the help from our caring community.

Nearly 4 years after the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal in April of 2015, there is still so much work that needs to be done. Homes still need to be rebuilt, communities are left without school houses, and many families are left without hope. While we are actively working on projects to provide the poor people of Nepal with education, safe homes, and opportunities for them to build continual income with our micro credit project, we need your help to make our efforts go even further!

You can be the change this world so desperately needs. Your gift greatly contributes to the foundation that these families need to truly live to their full potential. Please, take the step and make a lasting impact with a small donation of $50.

By not buying one cup of coffee a week, the contribution you can make to The Asha Project can provide a whole year’s worth of school supplies, the fees and uniform costs for a child to attend school, or the means to help families provide continual income for years to come. Please be a part of our mission with your generous monthly donation of $5, $10, or any other amount you are able.

Here are the ways you can make a donation:
— Visit our website at http://www.theashaproject.org/donate/
— Call us at 908-369-4318
— Send a check to:
The Asha Project
P.O. Box 5015
Somerville, NJ 08876

It is amazing how a short, four letter word can represent so much. Asha means hope, and that is our purpose.

I would like to personally thank you for being a part of that. Your donation will certainly go a long way towards giving hope and opportunities to the children and families of Nepal! Thank you, for your contribution.

Sincerely,

Dr. Tulsi R. Maharjan
Chair, The Asha Project
