|Musicians at Suraj's event in Nepal|
One of my favourite things about this year's campaign is that we've had several events take place within the countries we support. For example in Nepal, Suraj teamed up with Antardristi (one of our partners) and Diwen (former GVN employee on her travels) to organize an evening of music and dancing. In Diwen's words "It was an EVENT. Two of the best bands from Nepal, as well as musicians from Egypt, Turkey, etc jamming with the bands. The music is SUPER. And these musicians were all playing for free for ESTC. The people who organised this ESTC were AMAZING. Capital letters AMAZING. Friends, business people, restaurant owners, musicians, those who care enough to organise ESTC at their own time and resource."

Our own event here in Wellington was so much fun! We decided to do our event at a beautiful little cinema in Petone. We watched Oranges and Sunshine and had some delicious nibbles and drinks. A big highlight of the evening was our annual raffle which had some amazing prizes thanks to our generous sponsors. It was such a fun evening and it was great to have people of all ages and nationalities there! A huge thank you to Lydia, Fiona and Luke for organizing the event.
