Anne Finnan (Nepal)

Anne Finnan (Collective Campaign for Peace – COCAP - Nepal): Anne served in the Peace Corps as a Community Development Worker in Nepal from 2000-2002. She was thus very familiar with Nepali culture and language when she went to Nepal for AP. Between the Peace Corps and graduate studies, Anne worked with Project Self Sufficiency, a non-profit that cares for the displaced, single and young parents. Her clientele included young, single mothers struggling to care for their children and themselves. At the time of her fellowship, Anne was a graduate student in the International Political and Economy Development (IPED) program at Fordham University, Bronx, NY.



Getting ready to leave

23 May

I have purchased my ticket and now I am trying to pack my bags. Weather in Nepal will be hot and humid, but in Kathmandu you still have cool evenings. I have bought the basic Nalgene bottle for international travel. I have bought bug spray and iodine tablets. If I need sheets or clothing I can buy these in Nepal very cheap. I am bringing the bare minimum and that is all.

Tonight I must find my training materials and some language lessons that I can review. I have happily purchased a tetris game for my 17 hour flight to Bangkok, which I hope I can sleep a majority of the way.

I can’t believe I am returning to Nepal! I am excited to see my Nepali family and friends and can’t wait to see how things work at COCAP. It will be a great adventure!
