Information

Slow Food Zoo

Slow Food is an international movement founded by Carlo Petrini in 1986. Promoted as an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem. It was the first established part of the broader Slow Movement. The movement has since expanded globally to over 100,000 members in 150 countries.[1] Its goals of sustainable foods and promotion of local small businesses are paralleled by a political agenda directed against globalization of agricultural products."

Note: Many of us like eating veggie diets. You can *always* follow a recipe here and leave out the meat!

The recipes here are inspired by love. Please post your favorites.

Welcome to TLC NEPAL!

The organization ‘TLC’ was set up to help match volunteers with our projects working with children in our orphanage in Pokhara, Nepal. TLC facilitates services not Picture 4041only in Pokhara and the surrounding villages but also in the Kaski, Tanahu, Baglung,and Syangja districts of Nepal. There will not be any national and international volunteer organization involved who take money for their bureaucracy and send only little money to the field where you work and volunteer. You will see the change with the money you give directly.
In order to facilitate our work with some of the most needy children in Nepal, The Love Company desperately needs volunteers from all over the world to help with our projects, spend time with our children and themselves have a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience.
The Love Company offers an excellent, safe and friendly environment to stay and work in villages, getting to know the real Nepal. The satisfaction of our volunteers is always foremost in every project we run.
Picture 2698Why Choose The Love Company?

We think that our volunteer programs are unique compared to others. We believe that we provide a premier service that is transparent, cost effective, personal and flexible, making us different from other volunteer organizations. We are not affiliated with any volunteer organizations nor do we receive any government or

charitable funding, meaning we are currently entirely dependent on the help of volunteers.

TLC believes that progress is impossible without change; and exchanging the knowledge is the best way of developing our nation. We can learn from our volunteers just as they can learn a lot from us about our traditions and culture.
The Love Company focus on all activities like social, cultural analysis, traditional resources, child care, Nepali music, teaching basic hygiene, teaching English language, teaching gardening etc. If any volunteers wish to help in any other way, we will be very happy to facilitate this.

With love,

Founder Krishna Pokhrel

Have you always wanted to make your own bread? Well, here's a little article about making rye bread with a bread machine. This bread machine came from a thrift store and only cost $11.99! The ingredients to make Russian Rye were so simple you won't believe how easy it was. Enjoy!
