Description

Volunteers will teach environmental awareness at the local school and/or Environmental Post for 2 to 4 hours each day, Sunday to Friday. Environmental awareness projects will be defined by the individual volunteers based-upon their areas of expertise and the needs of the village community. Example projects include: creating "green" clubs, planting a flower garden, planting trees, garbage management, recycling programs, making a smokeless stove, building a toilet pit, etc. Volunteers may also provide assistance to youth clubs or women's groups in the community sharing their ideas, skills and knowledge about environmental issues. After completing the Nepali language and cultural training, volunteers will be placed with a Nepali family in one of the program villages. The host family will live no more than a half hour from the school/Environmental Post Inside-Nepal local co-ordinator will be helping to volunteers.
