Teej, the women’s festival, also in the children’s home - September 2012

The members of our female staff joined the celebrations for the traditional women’s festival Teej in September. On this day Nepalese women fast (many of them don’t even drink any water during the day) and dress in all shades of red. To make it a happy day in spite of the fasting many woman get together and celebrate all day with prayers and dances. It’s all in honour of their husbands and their families.
