Visit of the women supported by the goat project of Mrs Tratter
More than 10 years ago Prof. Troi launched several initiatives to support women in Nepal, including a goat project in 2013 and another one in 2018. One of her former students, Mrs Stefanie Plank, in 2007 took part in a pen-friendship project with Nepali students and in April 2018 she was in Nepal to visit, among other things, her long-time pen friend.
On behalf of Mrs Troi, together with Mrs Reecha Thapa, she visited the goat project 2018 initiated by Dr Tratter.
Report from Mrs Stefanie Plank
At the end of April, I met Ms. Reecha Thapa in Kathmandu. She informed me about her project with the goats and invited me to visit the village. A few days later, she and her husband picked me up with a taxi driver in Kathmandu. We drove about 3 hours to the mountain village. During the journey, I talked to Reccha and her husband. When we arrived in the village, one of the women made us lunch. After that Reccha led me from hut to hut. We visited the women with the goats and it was funny. The women were very friendly and happy. The goats were in good health and one was even pregnant. I had a very positive impression and it was a very nice experience for me in the mountain village.
