Quote from Patrick about the trip:
 
"I am humbled by the opportunity to represent my community in such a significant way.  Perhaps in working to create a better world, my efforts may help reduce the prejudice and discrimination many of our community and other minorities face in the mundane world.  In the end, I hope to show that all people, no matter what their beliefs, are both sacred and connected, and that all the people of the world should be honored as brothers and sisters of the Human race! "

In May, Patrick traveled to Kathmandu, Nepal on a humanitarian project supported by the United Nations NGO, Children of the Earth, the Hindu American Foundation, The Patrick McCollum Foundation, with additional support by the Pagan Alliance of Berkeley, CA. This project led support to a series of schools and an educational program for under privileged youth in Katmandu, and in the village of Halambu, and in other outlaying regions of Nepal.  

Together with other Children of the Earth board members, Patrick helped planned an educational conference for about 200 Nepalese teachers, some of whom traveled by foot many miles to come to the conference in Kathmandu.  Patrick also participated as a speaker and dialogue facilitator.

In addition, also had the honor of meeting with interfaith leaders from Nepal, to discuss ways we can work together to form alliances toward the advancement of religious pluralism, the acceptance of diversity, planatary sustainability, and world peace.  Read the blog here.
