Volunteering at an Elderly Home in Kathmandu

During my time volunteering at Briddha Ashram alongside the Mother Teresa nuns, I lived at a homestay with a Brahmin family a few blocks down the road. Engaging with the homestay mom, my Ama and her two adult kids, while learning from an anthropological case study on widowed Nepali Hindus, framed the experience I had volunteering with the nuns at the ashram. At Briddha Ashram, the elderly home, there are over 180 residents spread throughout the building located at Pashupatinath.
