Things are getting more and more clear for our future journey to Nepal. And we're super excited!
I want to, this frosty morning,to share a little bit of background to this project.
For exactly 2 years ago I, Nicole, spend 6 weeks in Nepal working as a volunteer in Horac Nepal. Horac stands for Home Of Rescue and Afflicted children and is an orphanage in Kathmandu.

She collaborates with an orphanage called Horac, and the story behind it will pop up here soon. Since our purpose with this internship aligns perfectly with the original idea of Wild Heights, the decision was made to unite the two and let it grow into something bigger here....
