  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP

Published

08/16/2018

Duration

Short-Term (few weeks/months)

Address

Champanager, Chitwan National Park
Chitwan
Nepal

Description

In cooperation with an experienced team and local villagers, volunteers will cultivate many different plants on a big farmland. The land also contains a fish farm and is planned to be run in a way that provides organic products. Afterwards the villagers sell the produce. The profit is meant to help the local community with their everyday challenges. Houses could be repaired, schools improved and emergency funds established.


Important part of this project will be the interaction between the international volunteers and the villagers. Volunteers can come up with creative ideas to raise environmental awareness among the locals. They can play sports with the local school children and teach them about their home countries. In return, the local community will be pleased to give the volunteers an insight into the Nepalese culture.


Location: Champanager, a village situated on the borders of Chitwan National Park.

The Chitwan National park is one of the major tourist attractions in Nepal. You can spot wildlife and enjoy the nature there. Away from the tourist center, Sourha, a lot of local villages share a border with the national park. In one of them we try to establish a farm on several hectares of land.
