Whitney Hansen, from the states has just received a donation of helmets from PRO-TEC. They have donated 12 ACE white-water helmets (pictured above), which is awesome for the Neplai Girls Kayak Club.
Monica Gokey (coming on the trip) has a sweet little donation box set up at a kayak shop called Potomac Paddle Sports in MaryLand (U.S.A). She has had heaps of donations so far including about 12 spraydecks. Here is a picture of the drop box.
North Water have donated about 11 throwbags for the trip, they will be shipped to Nepal too, which means more room to carry other gear. Very exciting.
Here is a little glimpse of the article Inka had in the Sweden Outside Magazine, she is now over in Nepal beginning the selection process for the training programme and sorting out lots of logistics.
