Farewell to the Summer of 2015
By Marlies Bosch
Last days in Ladakh and there are still many things that need to be dealt with, such as discussing the construction of a water reservoir at the new nunnery in Basgo, sponsored by the Foundation Educare.
In mid-July Ingrid Foeken and I gave a workshop on sexual abuse and celibacy. It is much needed because many girls are very young when they start residing at the nunnery and they are not given any information about such things at home. And in the nunnery too no one prepares them for such situations.
Bad weather in Ladakh
By Aniek Jaartsveld
Beginning of August, Ladakh, after five years was again hit by extremely bad weather.
In Nyerma there was leakage in the nun’s rooms. The paint on the outer wall almost completely washed away. The rooms of the guesthouse got wet mostly through the cracks in the wooden frames of the windows that was affected by climatic conditions. There is still fear among the Ladakhi’s of worst weather.
