I'm here today to promote a cool initiative happening in Kathmandu.

I tend to be skeptical of foreigner-run projects like this, as I have seen many of them miss their mark (or not have much of a mark to begin with), but this one passes muster. From the organizer:
...all the projects are actually owned, built and maintained by communities. We are only facilitators in the ideas spreading and design process as well as helping with the construction process. Parkmandu is not driven by donations but is completely owned by local communities who find the resources needed for the creation of the parks. They find the land, the government approval, and the budget.
Kathmandu could certainly use more parks, although some of those that already exist are lovely, like Ratna Park and Godavari.
