Siru Bari is a remote village in the hilly regions of Nepal where the locals still live off the land. However, the community suffers from severe lack of funds and knowledge needed for improving the living standards and facilities. The youth in the village are highly impacted. Our main goal with this project is to bring better education for the youth and improve their school facilities. We will therefore engage in both construction and educational work at the school.During the monsoon, when the ground is soft, the school is often affected by land- and mudslides and by domestic cattle entering the school grounds. Therefore, our first task will be to build a fence around the school to protect against these issues. Our second task will be to dig out and construct a playing field for the children and an area for the community to hold gatherings.
The volunteers can also teach English, Math, Sports and/or Music at the school. Interaction with the kids and involving them in cultural exchange activities is encouraged.
Arrival and orientation: All volunteers are requested to participate in an orientation meeting in Kathmandu on the day before the project starts. Details about the local host, the project and the travel arrangements will be provided. All volunteers will travel together from Kathmandu to the project site by bus.
Location: Siru Bari is in Lamjung district, about 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu, in central Nepal. It is a small village with a population of approximately 500 people, all living in very traditional ways. It is situated on a hillside with beautiful views of the valley. For the volunteers, this will be a unique opportunity to experience rural Nepal and the traditional ways of living that unfortunately are becoming more and more uncommon.
