Kathmandu Kora

socialtours
Every year, the KORA is a 50 km ride around Kathmandu, Nepal to raise awareness and crowd source funds for a cause. In 2011, we raised half a million rs. for an orphanage and a school... in 2012, we raised almost a million Rs. for birthing upgradations in Rukum..... This year, we are targetting to raise over two million to BUILD a birthing facility in Pyutar, Baitadi. These are pictures from Sharmali Baitadi!
