The US Ambassador for Nepal, Peter W. Bodde, along with the USAID Director in Nepal and UNICEF Representative for Nepal, made an official visit to one of Restless Development’s Temporary Learning Centers (TLC) in Lazimpat. The TLCs have been built to help children continue to learn and play after the devastating effects of the recent earthquakes, which destroyed the majority of schools in the country. The US Ambassador made sure that he visited each class, and observed the professionalism of the teachers and the learning environment. Importantly, the visitors got a chance to see the activities run by Restless Development’s young, local volunteers; who have been trained to lead both lessons and games for the children in the TLCs.

Restless Development Nepal welcomes a range of people and partners to visit the TLCs, where they can see the positive effects these spaces are having on children, our young volunteers, teachers and partners. The success of this programme is down to our well trained, and highly motivated, young volunteers. Restless Development's youth-led approach has been supported by the community and our partners, enabling us to continue to support many more youth in Nepal to take a lead in the post quake recovery.
