Betsey in Kathmandu

Connection Sightings

Kathmandu, Nepal

Volunteer Betsey Soulsby of Piedmont CASA in Charlottesville, VA, visited Nepal to see her daughter, who was working on a project to establish a library in a government-run school in Kathmandu. Soulsby, shown in the library, wrote that the trip was inspiring on many levels: “I find traveling, domestically and internationally, has similarities to CASA volunteering. Both offer opportunities for learning, reflecting and appreciating the uniqueness and commonalities in all of humanity.”

Soulsby also commented that “the inclusion of CASA volunteers with The Connection in far-flung locations is an interesting addition to the publication. It actually got me started thinking about more local display of the magazine. I place the latest edition of The Connection in the reception area of the dental office where I work. Maybe the exposure will pique some additional interest in our local CASA organization
