Play for Equality

On the 30th of September 2017 Steps organised Play for Equality.
Women challenged men to a game of volley ball in Tipling.
The women had never played before but proved that training pays, as they won the first game. The men’s team was furious, so they and the referee changed the rules so they could win the second game! Fair play records that the women’s team was victorious!

Draw for Equality

What an amazing experience it was seeing women giggle and laugh to explore their drawing skills for the first time in their life. Some women said it was unusual and fun to hold a pen. They were asked to draw anything that was related to women. Some drew stick figures with wrinkled bosoms and round vagina; some drew flowers, houses, plants and hills and some drew uterus. The workshop helped the women believe that given the chance, they can do anything.

Clothes Donations

Steps collected over 500 kilos of used clothing donated by Learning Rhythm International (LRI) School, Kalanki, Kathmandu. These were stored and sorted by four volunteer students from Singapore, at Mountain People Centre, Three hundred kilos were then freighted to Shomdang and Tipling. Here 400 school children received part school uniforms, distributed by the new formed Steps Foundation Women’s group of Tipling village.
Christina Tamang was project leader, backed by two volunteers Borja Garcia and Laura, who held health and exercise workshops. Finance of transport was covered by Mountain People, Beni Handicrafts and FreedomKitBags-UK.
