Last Sunday, on the 9th of March, the KRMEF team were lucky enough to host Dr. Abuleish for a day of wonderful interactions about the shared vision of sustainability, as well as great food, planting, and a presentation given by Krishna Gurung about KRMEF’s work and projects thus far. Ever since Krishna met Dr. Abuleish Ibrahim in SEKEM, Egypt in 2004, he has always dreamt of bringing him to Nepal. Dr. Abuleish won an alternative Nobel Peace Prize in 2003 for transforming a dead Egyptian desert into a living oasis. His work has very much inspired Krishna with his own sustainbilty projects in the Khahare community, and much has been learnt from the great Dr. Abuleish’s accomplishments. The Foundation was thus very much honored that Dr. Abuleish had heard of this newly emerging foundation, KRMEF, and that he wanted to pay a visit with his delegates. It has been our greatest honor to welcome him here and share the vision. We are glad that they all enjoyed Krishna’s presentation about KRMEF’s projects (he even wanted to have a copy of it!) and that it was a fruitful visit for all of us.
