  • Identify where Achham is, and point out that most development, funding, tourism is in the KTM valley/east of the country – i.e. NOT the FW. Can also mention Achham (FW generally) was epicenter of Maoist conflict => even more destitution. Don’t spend more than 90 secs on this slide though, our goal is not to give a history of Nepal hehe
  • Goal of slides 6-8 is to offer audience an understanding of where we work and what changes/progress we’ve seen there over the last 5 years. Slides 6 & 7 will offer general numbers, divided into People and Infrastructure, with slide 8 offering a summary of where we are in 2011.
  • “ICU” = intensive care unit (we should spell this out for the audience as many people likely won’t know what that is)
