Community Service

Community service, commonly known as youth service is donated service or activity performed by someone or a group of people for the benefit of the local or particular institution or community to strengthen young people's sense of civic engagement and community and to help them to achieve their educational, developmental and social goals.

Service learning is the deliberate connection of community service to stated learning goals. A common misconception among educators, youth workers and young people is the notion that service learning can be assigned. Several experts attest to the necessity of engaging youth in deliberating, planning, implementing, and reflecting on their community service, thereby sustaining high-quality service learning. This is intended to make community service an effective learning tool.

Our Motto
We assist and encourage the volunteers to contribute to the rural community development and education development in Nepal and its people. Volunteers can do a meaningful contribution to the particular underprivileged society. Participating in an exchange of ideas and viewpoints with the local people one can ultimately be a responsible for sustainable development. We are able to plan your programs to suit your intention, time and budget for any duration. Anywhere from 2 weeks to 5 months. We focus a lot on hands-on work, classroom teaching and outdoor interaction.

Our Program
Our program offers unique opportunities for interested individuals, groups, schools and for a contribution to the Nepalese society, at the same time, experiencing the rich culture and difference aspect of urban and rural life in Nepal. No previous experience is needed! The scale to which volunteers contribute to Nepalese societies varies ones personal capacity. 

To ensure an enriching experience, our programs include these elements:
Classroom teaching and learning
Hygiene education
Friendly games
Community Involvement Programme / Renovation works (Painting and general maintenance such as mending of holes / cleaning / plastering)
Field work (as and where possible eg. harvesting in the field)

 

Our backing
Firstly, we provide sound advice on the execution of the community service projects according to your interests, capacity, budget and time amongst other factors. Your trip logistics will be fully taken care of. We arrange our staffs and helpers to assist in the project completion and facilitate communications and the program. According to most who have been on projects with us, our staff often turns out as ‘not just a helper, but a teacher, guide, friend and often, a true inspiration to everyone!

What you need to plan
You will have to prepare basic teaching materials for the classroom session. You can also prepare some games which you can share with our Nepalese children. It is important to be mentally prepared concerning the environment what you're going to do. We will definitely guide you about all the preparations from the start till end of the project.

Location of community service  
Our  community service projects are taking place  in the areas of  Nuwakot, the old capital of Nepal which is located north of Kathmandu about two and half hours drive. Nuwakot is the most beautiful historic hill station spotted with villages of the mixed tribal groups. The locals send their children schools owned by community which have insufficient teaching materials and facilities.
