Apr 09, 2010 06:00 PM My volunteering job in Pokhara
I cannot describe it in this small pieces of paper Thanks to Mr Krishna , Director of this organization who provide me this chance to write few words about this organization.
I have got some chance to see some activities in rural area.
Volunteer Venture Nepal staffs welcomed me, touched me and even more, continues to touch me... Here is in some words an outline of what was my environment and my daily activities for the few months spent in this beautiful country…
The introduction in the community made possible with the help of Volunteer Venture Nepal, and the NGO (non governmental organization) was always there during key moments of our volunteering project, although not overprotective, leaving place for us to organize our activities. We were lodged by a family in kaskikot which was very much involved in the community for the total duration of our training course. Dimension of the family life was if not more important as much as the activities we had during our stay. Since the family and community values are very present and strong within the Nepalese culture, living with people of the community enabled us to be an integral part of the village and thus made the meeting and development of relationships easier. The contact with the culture itself, the life habits, traditions, festivals, etc was thus very strong. The exchanges with the members close to the family were very nice . Kaskikot is very interesting place to stay and everybody feels very easy there.
