      The Trans-Himalayan Aid Society presents a virtual conversation with representatives of the Voice of Children project on March 3.

      The Zoom event will focus on the work Voice of Children does for children and youth in remote Himalayan villages.

      Speaking at the event are Raghu Tewari, founder of the non-profit AMAN (meaning Peace), in Almora; Kanchan Bhandari, a social worker with over 20 years of experience advocating for children and women; and Nilima Bhatt, a social worker who is passionate about the Himalaya and improving life for mountain communities.

      According to a Trans-Himalayan Aid Society press release, "Raghu and Kanchan created the Voice of Children project to address the severe problems of inequitable access to education, child labour, child marriage, lack of primary health care, and general lack of opportunity for children in mountain villages surrounding Almora and Nainital. TRAS is a long-term supporter of this project."

      The event takes place at 7:30 pm Pacific time and you can register here.
