Arbeit

Part I: Garbage management The protection of the environment is a major challenge today. The solid waste management should be an urgent action to protect the environment. Solid waste is a by-product of human activities, which tends to increase with rapid urbanization, improved living standard and changing consumption patterns. Management of increasing amount of solid waste has become a major challenge in many communities in Nepal. If solid waste is properly used it can be a valuable resource, but if it is not effectively managed, it can result in serious adverse impact on environment and public health. The problems associated with the disposal of waste in public places in VIN’s working communities, including schools, are numerous and they include littering of food remains and other waste materials. There is a potential health risks associated with the poor management of solid waste .Children are particularly susceptible to respiratory problems caused by dust from dumping sites and also to diarrhoea ,skin disease and eye infection amongst other diseases. Non-biodegradable waste (NBW) is common in communities that are urbanised or within the vicinity of an urbanised environment. Nepal has a huge challenge of NBW visible to the naked-eye. This NBW phenomenon is a much larger issue in rural communities such as Kavresthali and Okharpauwa community located beyond the outskirts of Kathmandu. Preventing the build-up of NBW in communities becomes top priority as diseases derived from NBW increases the prevalence of disease related to sanitation and consumable products. Furthermore, NBW causes degradation to the land. The majority of farmers use to grow local products to feed their households and farm-stock. This project is designed to generate a change in the community with a theme of “Better Environment – Better Tomorrow”. Part II: Celebration of Holi Festival Holi, also known as Festival of colours, is one of the most popular festivals in Nepal. Holi is celebrated for the victory of good over evil and the coming of spring. During this colourful festival, Nepalese and foreign tourists will throw each other with dry powder and coloured water to express their sincere blessings and good wishes. It is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest. Holi is an ancient Hindi religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities outside Asia. People visit family, friends and foes to throw coloured powders on each other, laugh and gossip, then share Holi delicacies, food and drinks. The frolic and fight with colours occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings. Groups carry drums and other musical instruments, go from place to place, sing and dance. 2 days before the exit day, volunteers make the preparations and celebrate Holi festival in the community. Objective: • Prevent and control water, land and air pollution through environment education and cleaning activities. • Understand the importance of holi festival and know how it is celebrated. Activities:- • Organize the waste management /Community clean-up campaign involving community people. • Train local people on garbage management (segregation, disposal, domestic methodology to make compost fertilizer etc.) • Develop the concept of kitchen garden and train the households to implement it in their homes. • Celebration of festival of colors with positive energy in the community. Placement Support Process: The first day is arrival day and each volunteer is greeted and received by VIN local staff at the airport and taken to a local host family. On the second day volunteers will receive a full day orientation at VIN offices in Kathmandu. The placement orientation will cover cultural tips, survival phrases on Nepali language, health tips, preparation for project activities and an introduction to VIN. Volunteers will always be guided by a Nepali camp leader and VIN supervisors will visit them time to time for follow up and support. Should you have any concerns on the work camp, you may always call VIN for immediate help. On the last day of the work camp, volunteers will submit a detailed work report, fill up an exit form and sit with VIN executives for an exit interview and feedback session.

Arbeit

Youth of all countries constitutes the true wealth and future of the country. In our country, the population in the age group (16-35) is considered as the youth. According to the 2011 census, the youth population is 40.3% of the total population. Even though they are educated, they are unable to compete in job market due to lack of life skills and vocational training. Life skills increase young people's well-being and help them to develop into active and productive members of their communities. For example, the WHO has defined life skills as “abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life,” while UNICEF has defined them as a “large group of psycho-social and interpersonal skills that can help people make informed decisions, communicate effectively, and develop coping and self-management skills that may help lead a healthy and productive life.” Youth empowerment is one of the major programs of VIN’s Integrated Community Development Approach. The goal of Youth Personality Development is to empower youth socially and economically through education, developing their life skills & providing entrepreneurship development. VIN welcomes volunteers from across the globe so as to assimilate youth with life skills training, personality development, entrepreneurship training etc. Objective: • To provide unique opportunities to today's youth to improve both in personal and professional life. • To promote friendship, understanding and solidarity among local youth and cross-national volunteers/youths. • To provide opportunities for understanding and appreciation of the Nepalese culture and traditions via cultural immersion. Activities:- • Prepare and conduct different sessions with VIN’s Youth Development program officer • Public speaking (speech practice, body language) • Team Building and group work • Communication skills (verbal, listening, written) • Public relation etc. Placement Support Process: The first day is arrival day and each volunteer is greeted and received by VIN local staff at the airport and taken to a local host family. On the second day volunteers will receive a full day orientation at VIN offices in Kathmandu.

Arbeit

Children are not just little adults. They go through typical stages of growth—intellectually, emotionally, and socially—on their way to becoming adults. Sometimes we may think that children are too young to understand a gospel principle or that we really don’t have much influence with our older children. Developing a child's personality is an essential element in today's competitive world. A developed personality is definitely a key to success. Though developing personality in children is a slow and steady process, it enhances their confidence in future. Developing a child's personality holds a great importance, as it brings a lot more changes in the way the child behaves, deals or accepts a situation, or life itself. And then who as a parent would like to see lot of personality traits in a child. A child with a developed personality can stay socially viable, will be able to impress his audience, interact better, handle situations with great ease, have a positive approach towards each and every situation in life, and handle stress better. In the present context in Nepal, the school and family focus on getting good marks in exams. However, it is not focused on exploring the hidden talents of children and develop them for future. Children have less opportunities for those. This project aims to dig out the hidden talents and develop different skills so that they can perform better in the future. Objective: • To dig out child’s hidden talents, boost their confidence and improve their communication skills and language. • To develop the ability to enhance one’s scope of knowledge by widening the boundaries and few hobbies or brushing of particular skills • To help child get over from any of his/her weaknesses and bring a positive attitude in the child's way of thinking and living. Work and activities: • Prepare and conduct the research to dig out child’s hidden talents and interest. • Organize sessions of different life skills like communication, public speaking, leadership and so on. • Prepare and implement different sessions and activities to improve children’s ability. Placement Support Process: Each volunteer is greeted and received by VIN local staff at the airport and dropped to VIN hostel / hotel. The first day is the arrival day. The second day volunteers will receive a full day orientation at VIN office in Kathmandu. The placement orientation will cover cultural tips, survival phrases on Nepali language, health tips, preparation for project activities and an introduction to VIN. You will always be guided by a Nepali camp leader and VIN supervisors will visit you time to time for follow up support. Should you have any concerns on the work camp, you may always call us for immediate help.

Arbeit

Background/Project: Art is often considered the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations and ways of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture and paintings. Children of all ages love arts and crafts! They love getting creative, messy and admiring their masterpieces when they have finished and the great thing with arts and crafts is that they are aiding their development in many other areas too. As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. This unrestricted exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn and it's also fun. It is a natural activity to support this free play in children. Art and craft is a fundamental part of our everyday lives and encouraging children to learn about them will only benefit them as they get older. Art can help a child develop their feeling skills whilst craft will develop their thinking and coordinating skills. Art is communication of this common story that can brings us all together as humans. Art is important because other humans are important and it allows us to understand each other. This project is developed to improve children’s creativity. This aids children to think creatively and how to connect with their imagination. Creativity can make children happier. They express their emotions through arts and craft making them feel calmer and happier. It’s wonderful in children’s development. Art and crafts projects allows a child to practice their skills, like coordination (eg: cutting, shaping), understanding shapes and colours and explore their hidden interests and talents. It can bring about positive life-enhancing change to you and the Nepalese people, both ways. As a volunteer you will be given the unique opportunity to teach arts and crafts, of your choice, and also learn the trade through the artistic lens of the Nepalese people. Arts and crafts would also include dance. Here’s your chance to make a creative difference in Nepal through art. Objectives: • To provide opportunity for children to develop their creativity through art and crafts. • To promote the friendship, understanding and solidarity among local young volunteers and cross-national volunteers. Activities: • Develop and conduct the session of drawing, painting, creating gifts and craft or any artistic expression among the children. • Organize the activities of origami, collage work, music, dance etc.

Arbeit

Background/Project: 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.

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.

Arbeit

Background/Project: VIN’s Children Development Program not only focuses children’s education part, it also gives priority to sports. Due to its vast reach, unparalleled popularity and foundation of positive values, sport is definitely one of the greatest things man has ever created. It’s also a powerful tool that breaks down all the barriers and helps us feel good about ourselves, both physically and mentally. Sport is quite beneficial for children: by playing sports children develop physical skills, exercise, make new friends, have fun, learn to be a team member, learn about play fair, improve self-esteem, etc. The enhancement of physical and mental development of children is certainly the most important contribution of sports, but the list of values your child may learn and acquire through sports does not end here. Other positive aspects are numerous, which reveals the true beauty of sport. No other thing in life gives children such opportunity to develop positive character traits and to soak up many quality values as sports does. Similarly, physical activity has an immense impact on not only children’s physical health and development but on their psychological health as well. Sport more specifically can have an even greater impact in these areas of growth while improving social skills in the process. Sport provides children with the perfect outlet to keep them active while having fun and learning valuable life skills. There is truth in that sports bring people together. Seize the opportunity and share your love for sports, or a sport of your liking, with the children of Nepal. Football, volleyball and cricket are big in Nepal while other sports are only now beginning to take root. As a volunteer sports coach/teacher you would bring joy among the children. Objectives: • To teach or coach any sport to the children and develop the basic skills • To enable children create friendships, teamwork and benefits for social interaction, help building positive self- esteem, and increasing feelings of physical and mental well-being in children. Work and activities: • Teach/coach different sports (football, volleyball, basketball, badminton or any other) to the children and teachers. • Organize and conduct interschool sports events (indoor and outdoor) together with local staffs.

Arbeit

Background/Project: Children’s Development is one of the major programs in VIN’s Integrated Community Development Approach. The Goal of the Children’s development program is to protect the rights of all children by providing them access to basic quality education, developing their life skills & providing access to health services through community health program. Even in recent days in Nepal, schools are focusing on examination and are doing less for developing the creativity of the students. Teachers only focus on reading and writing – rote learning. The creativity of children is not explored. Due to the busy work schedule of parents, most of the children do not have the opportunity to socialize and be creative. To provide opportunities to children (aged 6-12 years old) on socialization & creativity, such type of camps is very essential. At VIN working area Okhaldhunga, children don’t have a proper structure and environment at home or school to develop their innate talents. Children's camp (at winter and summer breaks) is one of the best places to explore their innate talents and creativity. In this work camp, national & international volunteers facilitate different types of fun and creative activities for the target children where VIN works. Objectives: • To provide unique opportunity for overall development (social, emotional, physical, mental, creativity) & provide fun-time for children aged 6-12 utilizing their vacation period. • To promote friendship, understanding and solidarity among local young volunteers and cross-national volunteers. • To provide opportunity to understand and appreciate the Nepalese culture and tradition via cultural immersion. Work / Activities: The volunteers will conduct children's camp to promote their innate talents & creativity for their overall development such as physical, mental, social & emotional. During children camp volunteers can prepare sessions and take classes on following topics: Physical exercises, Team Building, Drawing, coloring & painting, Art, Craft & Origami, Singing and dancing, Drama, Music, and Hiking, Teaching language and so on. Location: Okhaldhunga district which is 250 km from Kathmandu. It takes one-day travel by bus. A hilly and mountainous region surrounded by woods and fields.

Arbeit

Background/Project: VIN’s Children Development Program not only focuses children’s education part, it also gives priority to sports. Due to its vast reach, unparalleled popularity and foundation of positive values, sport is definitely one of the greatest things man has ever created. It’s also a powerful tool that breaks down all the barriers and helps us feel good about ourselves, both physically and mentally. Sport is quite beneficial for children: by playing sports children develop physical skills, exercise, make new friends, have fun, learn to be a team member, learn about play fair, improve self-esteem, etc. The enhancement of physical and mental development of children is certainly the most important contribution of sports, but the list of values your child may learn and acquire through sports does not end here. Other positive aspects are numerous, which reveals the true beauty of sport. No other thing in life gives children such opportunity to develop positive character traits and to soak up many quality values as sports does. Similarly, physical activity has an immense impact on not only children’s physical health and development but on their psychological health as well. Sport more specifically can have an even greater impact in these areas of growth while improving social skills in the process. Sport provides children with the perfect outlet to keep them active while having fun and learning valuable life skills. There is truth in that sports bring people together. Seize the opportunity and share your love for sports, or a sport of your liking, with the children of Nepal. Football, volleyball and cricket are big in Nepal while other sports are only now beginning to take root. As a volunteer sports coach/teacher you would bring joy among the children. Objectives: • To teach or coach any sport to the children and develop the basic skills • To enable children create friendships, teamwork and benefits for social interaction, help building positive self- esteem, and increasing feelings of physical and mental well-being in children. Work and activities: • Teach/coach different sports (football, volleyball, basketball, badminton or any other) to the children and teachers. • Organize and conduct interschool sports events (indoor and outdoor) together with local staffs.

Arbeit

Background/Project: Art is often considered the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations and ways of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture and paintings. Children of all ages love arts and crafts! They love getting creative, messy and admiring their masterpieces when they have finished and the great thing with arts and crafts is that they are aiding their development in many other areas too. As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. This unrestricted exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn and it's also fun. It is a natural activity to support this free play in children. Art and craft is a fundamental part of our everyday lives and encouraging children to learn about them will only benefit them as they get older. Art can help a child develop their feeling skills whilst craft will develop their thinking and coordinating skills. Art is communication of this common story that can brings us all together as humans. Art is important because other humans are important and it allows us to understand each other. This project is developed to improve children’s creativity. This aids children to think creatively and how to connect with their imagination. Creativity can make children happier. They express their emotions through arts and craft making them feel calmer and happier. It’s wonderful in children’s development. Art and crafts projects allows a child to practice their skills, like coordination (eg: cutting, shaping), understanding shapes and colours and explore their hidden interests and talents. It can bring about positive life-enhancing change to you and the Nepalese people, both ways. As a volunteer you will be given the unique opportunity to teach arts and crafts, of your choice, and also learn the trade through the artistic lens of the Nepalese people. Arts and crafts would also include dance. Here’s your chance to make a creative difference in Nepal through art. Objectives: • To provide opportunity for children to develop their creativity through art and crafts. • To promote the friendship, understanding and solidarity among local young volunteers and cross-national volunteers. Activities: • Develop and conduct the session of drawing, painting, creating gifts and craft or any artistic expression among the children. • Organize the activities of origami, collage work, music, dance etc.

Arbeit

A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a specific community/school for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. Learners are at the centre of learning in the library. In Nepal, there are not enough training organized for teachers and children on how to use a library. So through this camp, volunteers will organize teaching and learning activities through the use of library resources. It’s a very fun and creative way of learning. Work camps will be organized with the cooperation of local community schools under VIN’s children’s development program and working together with local teachers/children/ villagers. The schools where we are conducting camps lack facilities of a library and other infrastructure. Some schools have some collections, but they are not managed and used well. The rooms are not well painted and books are not arranged in a proper order. Children are not taught the skills of using a library and its importance. Volunteers will not only manage the library, but will also organize activities with children at school and conduct some classes on how a library is managed and used. The library camp will help children to develop reading and writing skills. Volunteers with abilities on sports, arts & crafts, music, dance, drama, in & outdoor group games are welcome. Through this project we want to give every student an opportunity to learn, to enjoy reading, and to create new knowledge and understanding by the use of a library. Objectives: • To work for a children development project and exchange the experience • Help the school manage its library and teach children to use it in a regular basis. Work: • Clean and maintain the library. • Arrangement of resources in the library and record them in proper order. • Paint and decorate the library room. • Conduct the session with children and teachers for the proper use of library. • Organize different reading and/or writing activities with children in relation to the use of the library.

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.

Arbeit

A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a specific community/school for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. Learners are at the centre of learning in the library. In Nepal, there are not enough training organized for teachers and children on how to use a library. So through this camp, volunteers will organize teaching and learning activities through the use of library resources. It’s a very fun and creative way of learning. Work camps will be organized with the cooperation of local community schools under VIN’s children’s development program and working together with local teachers/children/ villagers. The schools where we are conducting camps lack facilities of a library and other infrastructure. Some schools have some collections, but they are not managed and used well. The rooms are not well painted and books are not arranged in a proper order. Children are not taught the skills of using a library and its importance. Volunteers will not only manage the library, but will also organize activities with children at school and conduct some classes on how a library is managed and used. The library camp will help children to develop reading and writing skills. Volunteers with abilities on sports, arts & crafts, music, dance, drama, in & outdoor group games are welcome. Through this project we want to give every student an opportunity to learn, to enjoy reading, and to create new knowledge and understanding by the use of a library. Objectives: • To work for a children development project and exchange the experience • Help the school manage its library and teach children to use it in a regular basis. Work: • Clean and maintain the library. • Arrangement of resources in the library and record them in proper order. • Paint and decorate the library room. • Conduct the session with children and teachers for the proper use of library. • Organize different reading and/or writing activities with children in relation to the use of the library.
