DESCRIPTION:

Local hotelier John Matthews launches his new book White Chalk.

In the spring of 2009 John Matthews was a 45 year old Finance Director living a comfortable life in Dubai. All that changed forever when he took a trekking holiday to Nepal with a group of friends.

Moved by the poverty and the appalling plight of the nation’s children, he decided to help. Bypassing the increasing bloated and self-perpetuating aid industry he established his own charity  – Children of the Mountain – and spent the next decade building schools and educating children in  Nepal. Corruption, civil unrest, local feus, dangerous terrain and an earthquake all played their part in John’s remarkable Journey. White Chalk is a story that will break your heart, lift your soul and make you laugh out loud in equal measure.
