Arran House in Nepal goes from strength to strength

‘The money raised has made a big difference,’ says Gordon Davidson

Arran artist Gordon Davidson is a regular visitor to Nepal, where he is a keen supporter of the Kalaa Jyoti project in which he helped set up Arran House to accommodate orphans and provide them with art education and other opportunities.

Following his most recent visit, he details the progress of the humanitarian effort and some of his experiences during his trip before heading back to Nepal next month.

The Arran House team, are, left to right, Tenzing, Saroj, Adeep, Major Prakaash Gurung, Finjo, Deepak and Sankar.

Last summer the Isle of Arran Distillery put on the fourth Kalaa Jyoti art exhibition for Gordon to help the poor children from Nepal that the project works with. The exhibition raised £2,030. The money went directly to buy art material and also into the project’s safe house north of Kathmandu. Arran House was set up from a fundraising event in Lady Jean Fforde’s Strabane garden and a substantial donation from the distillery immediately following the earthquake.
