Volunteering in Nepal

 

Help Educate Poor Children!

Nepal Vision Treks & Expedition is an entity with a conscience where financial profit isn't a sole definition of the success! Serving the society and helping people in need through various social initiatives is our primary goal and also an immense part of our corporate social responsibility. We believe in treating the people, communities and suppliers we do business with parity and we thrive to support to the causes we believe in. We make an effort where possible to support pro-poor tourism ventures and ensure that the benefits of travel are distributed more equitably in the rural societies. We believe that we have a responsibility to raise awareness with our travelers of some the realities of the places we travel through and help where we can, also as an opportunity to volunteer in Nepal. As a responsible and sustainable tour operator, Nepal Vision Treks has launched the Child Education Program with the goal of providing School Level Education [10th grade] to the deserving but poor, disabled, orphaned, and conflict-affected children in a tender to empower them with a better chance to live a happy, secured and healthy life through the means of proper education.

Nepal Vision Treks, as one of the primary supporters, has been working directly with the local villagers' in the rural Nepal. After the discussion with the local people of the area we focused on offering help to the underprivileged, marginalized, poor and minority group of people. Making this program effective, we seek financial support from our clients and donors. With the funds collected, it is invested to the community project. The fund received will be utilized for the children's school fees and stationery, School's Maintenance and other necessary educational resources. As the school is located within the village, there is no lodging or accommodation cost involved which makes this a genuinely educational based sponsorship. All your money is going towards their educational needs. In return, you can see and feel the real impact that your support has made as we keep in contact via letters and with regular school reports, photos and updates.

Who are the beneficiaries?

  1. Conflict-affected children who are physically and mentally disturbed
  2. Children from poor families with the record of school dropout
  3. Children which are termed as from "the so called lower cast" in their society
  4. Orphans neglected by their parents
  5. Sympathy even goes for those guides and porters who are making a very hard journey in the Himalayas with you in order to shape the future of their children. If you are directly ready to help their children, please contact in our office desk.

We assure you, the contribution you make will directly benefit the above mentioned groups with no objective of personal gain, as this project is aimed at empowering all those underprivileged children and community in whole. Education is the only powerful tool to combat their misfortunes and to shape their future. Since children are the hope of the nation, empowering children in the long run will undoubtedly empower the community and the entire nation.

How can you help?
"Investing in Children’s Education is investing in the Future" Volunteering in Nepal; you have the will power to make a difference in the lives of these poor souls by supporting this social cause. Sponsors can contribute to the scholarship program for these children in an annual basis. The cost to educate a child for an entire year is just USD250, which is our ordinary sponsorship program. 84% of the funds collected will go directly to the children for the educational needs, and other 16% of the amount will go for the administrative purposes and to the local coordinators. Local guardians will be authorized to utilize this fund for children's education. We have the local monitors who will ensure that the funds are used for the children’s educational needs and also evaluate whether the children are really benefited or not. Moreover, they will report the children's progress the concerned parties. We will periodically send you the children's regular progress report in every six months to assure you that the contribution you made has indeed been useful for the intended purposes.

With our sponsorship project, we are aiming for the long term commitment from you as in the form of future sponsorship which may require for their High School and University Education. If the child you sponsored is academic talent, he/she may even get the golden opportunity to study abroad, which can certainly benefit everyone. This is what we believe in and plead you for your generosity!

School and class room Maintenance Program
This is an opportunity to help in a wide range of practical village-based projects through volunteering. These projects could be as basic as painting or plastering, however, those with additional skills may be able to help in more advanced work. Projects are usually decided upon in consultation with local communities, but you can use your initiative to suggest projects of your own. It is vital to be sensitive to the needs and wishes of the local community. Projects are usually partly funded by the communities and partly by our partner organization and/or volunteer contributions. You'll work with other volunteers in small groups, usually with minimal supervision. Often you'll also work alongside villagers, learning about traditional methods of building and working. Example projects include school repair and decoration; toilet building; drinking water projects; road drainage projects; recycling projects; stove building; and construction work on our partner organization's own Children's home.

Education program
Depending on the medical qualifications volunteers with a background in healthcare will work closely with rural village. The need is extensive for children's health care. Projects could include; health checks, the creation of medical records, health and sanitation education; administering inoculations against childhood diseases and treating basic ailments in the village. Volunteers with health education and first aid training can also provide real benefits to local communities. You can also deliver first aid knowledge to the local villages and assist in developing and delivering First Aid and General Health Programs. Please note that for the health program we prefer medical students or advanced degree holders, however, volunteers with basic experience in this area can also be placed. We will require your resume or C.V. with your application.

Environmental Awareness program
If you are passionate about saving the environment then this it is the time. Through environmental awareness program, it is possible to teach about environmental awareness in local schools, within the community. Environmental Awareness activities and programmers can also be undertaken in the plan. In this setting projects could include; informing children about the hazards of inappropriate garbage disposal, building a compost bin and teaching the children how to maintain it, creating paper recycling stations to teach the children a valuable skill that could ultimately be used in their future.

Cultural Exchange/ Home Stay
Cultural exchange/home stay program is a fantastic way to get more experience and learn from your time in Nepal. You will be placed with the Nepalese family in a small rural village or within a city for the duration of your stay. You'll learn about all the aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people - all in all, an unforgettable experience. You should remember that this is a cultural exchange, so you should try and offer some knowledge of your own home culture and customs to your host family. During your home-stay you will attend language lessons in the morning and in the afternoon. You can spend the day visiting the local village and school and exploring the local area. You will also have the opportunity to help out at the local school, as a volunteer. Home-stay programs can only be arranged for two weeks or one month and are best from August to December, which is the time when most large local festivals take place resulting in an overall more exciting experience. Please note that if you choose a home-stay/cultural exchange you will be placed with your host family as soon as you arrive in Nepal.

Working Together for a Dream!
We can hear the dream, listen for the opportunities we can provide for its fulfillment and present those options while listening for alternatives, and then do what we do best: help these people with a dream of a better community, nation or world raise the on-going, supplemental or initial funding that will make the dreams happen.

We make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children and their families by evolving a free school education program in government schools.

Realizing the fact that every child has a right to education, we continue to work towards our vision to ensure that 'No child in Nepal shall be deprived of education.'
