Aching muscles in Nepal!

Agricultural life-ways are often romanticized in films but the reality is that it is an unstable, backbreaking and tedious existence.  Just ask Bridges Between trip volunteers who have spend just a few hours in the tending the fields and woke the next morning with aching muscles!

In rural Nepal, where growing food is an everyday, all day process, how can a village household earn the few dollars a year required to hire oxen to plow the fields or electricity for the home?

The foundation for sustainable development is EDUCATION!
