Today part of our leadership team met with Fulmati, Fellow, Friend, and International Board IPM member, in Batipur, Nepal.

She received the Kathleen Mink award for the work with the Arthumka Community. Just after a small ceremony, our team visited Arthumka Village and they got to see the work women do with bambu to generate income for themselves and their families. Women live with many challenges in this community, such as difficult access to health, water, food, education, and sexual and reproductive rights. Group organization, is a way of facing these social injustice and reach collective goals.

Later they visited another village, where they met a women cooperative focus on agricultural projects. With the income from their projects, they are building a museum, to share their culture and religion with the world. Bandipur has become a very touristy place, therefore they see a growth oopportuniy in this area.

Thank you, Soni and Fulmati, for the continuous support to local leaders, as well as for all the work you do yourselves.

On a recent visit to India we were glad to have Adela visit Himat and his team and his home village. It was a pilgrimage of sorts visiting Late Pochabhais family and team. His inspiration continues. Here are a few glimpses of that visit. Adela got to experience India's culture of Atithi Devo Bhava. Which literally means the Guest is to be treated like God.... ... See MoreSee Less

Director of International Programs and Partnerships, Adela Zayas, is visiting South Asia fellows to learn and share in community.

Soni Shrestha welcomes Adela, in a Nepali warm and traditional way, on her first day in the region. Cros-cultural encounters help understand the differences, and act on the commonalities. Solidarity grows from that space of united action.

It is with loving remembrance that the IPM Family join their hearts across the globe to celebrate the life, light, and enduring legacy of one of our founders … the late and remarkable, Rev. Jim Mayer - on what would have been his 98th Birthday today.

As we reflect on IPM’s 48th Anniversary earlier this month, it is with heartfelt gratitude that we thank you, Jim, for your prophetic vision for a society grounded in justice and love and the lasting inspiration you continue to be for all of us at IPM in our ongoing work across borders of caste, culture, faith, and economic circumstance to nurture partnerships that build justice, peace, and hope.
