We have several alumni serving with Tiny Hands Internationally. Dawna R. Clifton Upadhyay, and husband Khemraj have also reported that they are safe from harm. Khemraj is principal at the Dream Center school, and Dawna teaches art there. (She has undergrad degrees in both photography and illustration from IWU.) They and their three children live in Pokhara, near the epicenter.
We pray for the people of Nepal and are grateful for the impact our alumni are having.
