Volunteer Nepal Kathmandu: Community Development

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Our Construction, renovation and community awareness placement in Nepal will provided with a fruitful interaction between yourself and the community in which you are working with the community members together to help them build a required infrastructure. In this program Physical labour like mixing cement, carrying, digging hole is needed on development and renovation work as well as our social awareness campaigns helping to involve the local people by bringing them ownership of their village, its facilities and social issues.

You will spend most of the time engaging with community development work as well as focusing on social development should you wish to work in both areas. For our development work you will be involved with the reconstruction homes for the earthquake hit victims, painting, repairing and beautification of schools, day care centres, gardens or homes which are below the poverty line. This manual work may also include an element of motivating and creating teams of village children to help clean up litter on the streets or help to plants trees depending on where your project is based. You may also get involved with our dustbin construction initiative where you will be working to create hygiene awareness amongst children.
