There is a rich social life within the community. During down time coworkers can be found doing yoga, group workouts, playing pool, canoeing, hiking the land, playing music/ singing, or going to the nearest town to see a movie at the theatre. Community members are able to go to larger cities on their days off. For year long Coworkers 3 weeks of vacation is offered.

HOSTING FEE: It is difficult and expensive to stay in London so we have to charge £130 GBP for the 10 days. This will pay for the accommodation and a basic budget for food. The fee should be paid upon arrival. NB: It is possible that the amount of this fee will be reduced as we are looking for sponsors. We will inform the partners if that is the case.

Arbeit

Many parts of the communities were destroyed to dust and many families lost their houses and properties during the 2015 earthquake. This massive earthquake not only left people poor but many people are now homeless and living in very cold and small temporary shelters. This tragic moment made VIN realize that the reconstruction of houses of poor families, public properties, religious temples, and cultural heritage sites should be a priority when supporting the people in the community. After the devastating earthquake of 25th April, 2015, the situation in Nepal is desperate! VIN has been continuously involved in Relief work, which is divided into three phases; Rapid response / Rescue, Rehabilitation, Reconstruction & Sustainability. VIN has already completed two phases, and we are now in the Reconstruction & Sustainability phase. This is a long term phase. We will be working until the reconstruction is complete in our affected communities. This project aims to support very poor and needy families to reconstruct earthquake resistance houses. Objectives: • To support the rebuilding of Earthquake resistance homes for the most needy and affected families of VIN’s working communities. • To demolish damaged structure, clear debris and manage it. Work / Activities: • Support the victims to rebuild earthquake resistant homes. • Demolish the damaged structure, clear debris and manage it. • Educate on safe earthquake resistant houses.
