The second part of A teacher in Kathmandu.
The unexpected live events of a teacher who had a dream: Kathmandu.The book, on which the new movie of Icíar Bollaín is based. The unfinished story of Vicki Subirana starts with narrating the dreams of a young solidary teacher with a mission, and finishes with the consolidation of a universal educational project for the poorest and the most marginalised in Nepal, for whom she achieved education we all wished for for our children in our privileged world - thank to the Montessori method.
In her determination to carry through her ideals, Vicki had to cope with all sorts of difficulties. In order to avoid being deported from Nepal she even accepted an arranged marriage with a sherpa, a story that became a big love story. The narrative of the enthralling life and professional story of the author results in an extraordinary book, where the reader will find a beautiful and rare love story mixed with fascinating travel journals and also, or perhaps above all, an informative and convincing vision of the raw reality in the Third World.
The book with the instructional material about the method of Victoria Subriana: THE TRANSFORMATIVE PEDAGOGY.
This book is a continuation of “A Teacher in Kathmandu”. It collects some of the episodes of my life from the 25 years that I’ve been working in Nepal. It has been written as a legitimate defence, as an objective to report the abuses, the bad practices, the felonies and crimes committed at schools I personally founded to offer education to the poorest children of Nepal. It’s not a fictitious or modified novel. The characters are alive and real. The story puts in question the morale of some of the people occupying high-ranking officials.
Also, Victoria Subirana is the author of 47 text books, based on the investigation of the indigenous cultures coexisting in Nepal, for the kindergarten and the initial education cycle. “My world, your world, our world”.
