Volunteer opportunity posted by: Global Volunteer Network
Posted on: February 22, 2013
Volunteers have the opportunitiy to be a big brother or sister to children living in orphanages. Nepal is a developing country and is considered one of the poorest countries in the world. Often children are abandoned or 'given over to brokers' by their families, but there are children who reside in the homes who do not have parents or other family to care for them.
In this Children's program offered by the Global Volunteer Network volunteers will be placed in a children's home located within a one and a half hour bus ride from the heart of Kathmandu. Some placements allow the volunteer to live within the orphanage, however, volunteers can also choose to be placed with a host family.
Your role as a volunteer is to be a big brother or sister to the children. Other tasks may include helping with medical visits, cleaning, paper recycling, gardening, teaching the house mothers how to properly clean, doing repairs, mending clothing, planning activities for after they return from school and perhaps preparing meals. Once the children return from school, your role will be to assist and encourage them with their homework as well as play with them. Some of the older children may be encouraged to develop skills that may help them in later life such as paper making, sewing or maintenance work.
Other volunteer opportunities in Nepal are in areas such as Teaching English, Health Education, School and Community Maintenance Program and a Home Stay Programme/Cultural Exchange.
