Nyaya’s team is composed of an impressive array of over 100 staff members in Achham, and countless volunteers around the world.  Our Country Director, Gregory Karelas, acts as the fulcrum for all of our operations in Achham, coordinating the work of both our Achhami staff and international volunteers.  Despite this, his day-to-day life remains an enigma to many, so we thought we would spend a day documenting just some (though not even close to all) of the activities that occupy his time.

Please see below a slideshow that documents a usual day in Gregory’s life from dawn until (well past) dusk.  Our hats go off to him for his continued dedication, and the passion that drives his work for the people of Achham.


Dan Schwarz is the member of the Board of Directors and a medical student at Brown University School of Medicine. He completed his MPH at the Harvard School of Public Health.
