Shekhar Bhandari at WordCamp Kathmandu 2016

November 19th, 2016. Kathmandu, capital city of Nepal. With more than 1,000,000 inhabitants, the WordPress community hosts 5,000 members in this city, which makes it a very good place for a WordCamp. The first ever WordCamp held in Kathmandu’s name was attended by 250 people. Shekhar Bhandari, one of our WPML supporters, joined as a volunteer and has shared his impressions with us

 

“This was my second time at a WordCamp. The first one was WordCamp Nepal 2015, where I participated as an attendee. This time I wanted to do something more so I enrolled as a volunteer. I really wanted to be an organizer but my city, Biratnagar, is 700 km away – much too far. Being a volunteer I only needed to be there 1 or 2 days before the event. I assisted a blind speaker and it was a great experience!

“We are planning to create a community nearby, moving away from the capital to the smaller cities, perhaps joining 2 or 3 cities together. When we achieve this, I see myself helping as an organizer. I would like to have the experience and I have learned a lot from being a volunteer.”
