Co-founder Ayaka and Edgar were invited by Sagar Chhetri, who is a visual artist from Nepal, and organized a Bamboo workshop in Nepal on January 2019.
This was reported in the article on website of Lakshmi Mittal South Asia Institute at Harvard University . “While at Harvard, Sagar met Ayaka Yamashita, a MDes Candidate ’21 and Fulbright student at Harvard Graduate School of Design who works with Bhutanese refugees from Nepal as Co-Founder and Director of EDAYA with her partner Edger Banasan, a master bamboo craftsman and musician from the Philippines. “In January 2020, Ayaka and Edger called me from the airport and told me they were boarding a flight for Kathmandu,” he recalled. Reconnecting with his peers from half a world away in Nepal, the three shared their work with one another. “Before they ended their week-long trip in Nepal, we made sure art students at Kathmandu University got a chance to learn a new bamboo craft,” he said — bringing his experiences, knowledge, and connections all the way from Cambridge back to the students of Nepal.”
