Jeff Papa, '99 Volunteers in Nepal
IU School of Law-Indianapolis graduate Jeff Papa (Class of 1999) spent about 10 days this summer in Baldan Baraivan, Mongolia, as a volunteer helping to restore an 18th century monastery.
The restoration project is sponsored by Cultural Restoration Tourism Project CRTP), a San Francisco-based organization. Donations from volunteers fund restoration costs, including pay for local workers.
Papa learned of the restoration project while researching information for Youth Enhancement and Training Initiative (YETI), an Indiana organization founded by Papa and others to help orphans in Nepal and underprivileged Hoosier children. YETI plans to break ground this November for an orphanage in Nepal . Five of nine YETI board members are IU School of Law-Indianapolis graduates (Sarah Dillinger, '03; Jim Owen, '99; Zach Stock, '01; Ann Thrasher Papa, '01; and Jeff Papa).
