History and Origin of International Mud Day

In Nepal, where International Mud Day began, the objective of the original event was to enrich the lives of 58 orphans, by getting them outdoors to enjoy the environment. After splashing in the mud, these children’s moods and attitudes were much improved.

This day was first created at a World Forum in 2009, by Gillian McAuliffe from Australia, and Bishnu Bhatta from Nepal.

This special day is sponsored by the World Forum Foundation.
