Background Information about the project and work.

Siru Bari in the Lamjung district about 200 km west of the capital, Kathmandu. It is small village embedded in beautiful hills. During the monsoon, when the ground is soft, the school is often affected by land- and mudslides and by domestic cattle entering the area around the school. We therefore have two tasks:

1. To build a fence around the school to protect against these issues.
2. To dig out and to construct a playing field for the children and an area for the community to hold gatherings.

It rains in July and August but only for a couple of hours a day. During this we don’t work outside. But to maximize our effort, we do educational activities when the rain prevents us from doing outdoor work. Our volunteers can therefore teach English, Math, Sports and/or Music at the local school. We also encourage you to interact with the kids and to organize a cultural exchange program.

Accommodation

The volunteers will stay with a local family. Each family can host up to three volunteers. You will experience their huge hospitality, friendliness and generosity and it is easily noticeable that they truly enjoy having people staying with them. They are proud of their culture and this will give you a good insight into Nepali life. Please bring your own sleeping bag and mattress. A (cold) shower will be available at the camp house, but not to the standard of your respective country. You will be served Dhal Bhat (a soup of lentil or beans with boiled rice) and Tarkari (cooked vegetables) by your host family.

All vegetables are grown by themselves. This is the staple diet of the
Nepalese and most Nepalese people eat it every day. We all take part in the daily routines, so the volunteers will help to prepare meals in turn.

Meeting condition

The first meeting will be arranged at the airport where the volunteer will be
received by the local staff. We are going to pick up the volunteers according to their arrival information. For your stay in Kathmandu we recommend you to stay at Cascade Hotel in Lazimpat kathmandu Nepal. The room is available single bed room 10€ per night. Double bed 20 € and triple bed 30€. If you like to stay more and comfortable hotel you also book by yourself as well. From Kathmandu we will arrange a bus to the project side. Note : Arriving date, time and flight number should be given to us at least one week before your arrival, because we have to manage the hotel and transportation Cost of the Airport pick up day time : 9AM to 9:00 PM :1000 NRS night time Airport pick up service :2000 NRS (double charge).

Leisure activities

Here you can see the great views of the valley and the whole Annapurna mountain range while getting some exercise. Once you finish your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the wonders of Nepal. We suggest: jungle Safari in Chitwan National Park (about 120km from Siru Bari.
