Project location Chitwan

Background Information about the project and work.

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. 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 we sell the production and gain profit. The
profit is meant to help the local community with their everyday challenges. Houses could be repaired, schools improved and emergency funds established. In addition to that, an important part of this project will be the interaction between the international volunteers and the villagers. Volunteers can come up with creative ideas to gain environmental awareness among the locals. They can play sports with the local schoolchildren and teach them about their homes. Vice versa the local community will be pleased to give the volunteers an insight view into the Nepalese culture.

Accommodation

Simple accommodation in a camp house or with a local family. Volunteers will have three traditional meals a day, mostly the Nepalese national dish Dhal Bhat and take part in the cooking process and all chores. It is also possible to bring own food.
