It is at work at all levels of leadership, across cultures and continents, in developed and least developed countries, inspiring and moving people to deepen their individual capacities to create a world that works for everyone. We invite you to join us in contributing to lasting, positive change in our world now and for generations to come.
We were saddened by the news that a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25, killing 8000 people and injuring over 19,000 more. There were close to 100 aftershocks at 15-20 minute intervals and a subsequent quake on May 12 of 7.3 magnitude that killed 200 more and injured over 2500.
The members of our Nepali Social Artistry community survived and have responded to the urgent need for food, water, and emergency shelters, especially for the people of the villages, schools and centers that they serve. Go to http://www.jeanhoustonfoundation.org/category/Nepal to read about their continuing assistance in rebuilding and supporting the recovery from loss of family members, destroyed homes and businesses and the shock of such widespread devastation.
In your desire to contribute to this recovery, you may donate through the Jean Houston Foundation to enable our colleagues in Nepal to continue their efforts.
In sadness and hope,
Peggy Dean, Director
