Dette projekt tilbydes i samarbejde med organisationen GVI og nedenfor kan du læse deres beskrivelse af programmet:
Travel to Nepal’s beautiful city of Pokhara and volunteer alongside an international team in a care centre or children’s home, providing educational and personal development support to children. Visit traditional Hindu and Buddhist temples and embrace your adventurous side with white water rafting or mountain trekking trips in your free time.
The main project site is Male Patan Child Care centre where we provide support for the local staff in a programme for approximately 25 young children. This is in the form of support for routines such as handwashing and toothbrushing, teaching lessons to the children either individually or in small groups. We have a focus on ensuring the children develop skills which are appropriate to their age and also that help prepare them for school.
The afternoon project is a Conversation Club for local children ages 8-15. The focus is on developing conversational English skills, as well as problem solving and creativity. The idea is to broaden their experiences away from the text book based education system. The sessions are fun, social and interactive. We also incorporate sports and other games.
Once a week we work with Street Boys Rehabilitation Home where we work with up to 10 boys (6-15 years) who live in this family environment. We provide individual and small group support with homework, foster their creativity and problem solving skills through a range of hands-on tasks and get the boys active with sports activities-soccer being their favourite.
