Background Information about the project and work

Banepa is located in the Kavre district at 1800 m altitude, about 30km east from Kathmandu. Our activities take place around Banepa, a town just an hour bus ride away from Kathmandu. Our volunteers live all together in a camp house, which is located in
the hills, close to the town. Nature is all around and the air here is far better than in the buzzing capital. Still Banepa offers amenities like restaurants with Wifi, pharmacies, grocery stores and to top it all off, a beautiful old town. From here, field trips to a variety of places are possible. For example, ancient Hindu temples, various trekking opportunities and all the sights of the Kathmandu valley are not far away.

What we do: This work camp tries to have a social impact, while giving a  valuable life lesson to the volunteers. There are many different fields of activity.

Agriculture work: after the earthquake we complete the community house which is our one of the dream project. Which building have five different rooms use by the local community.

1. Meeting room is on the ground floor 200 people can use it for the different way weeding ceremony, community meeting and so own.
2. On the top floor there are five rooms and they are using as community office, health center, youth club, mother society and one room for the guest room.
3. After complete this building we already handover the community and of course all the local people are very happy and thanks to our local and international partners who support this community building.

From now we are going to working for the forest community and helping with different way, agriculture, plantation, environment work and forest conservation work will be the main work as before we work.

Education: We are planning to write and perform plays that raise local people’s awareness on environmental issues, hygiene and emergency behavior during the earthquake. Furthermore, we are working in a local school. We enhance the infrastructure there. What we expect: The community house project is in urgent need
of donations to address shortages in building materials. Any and all help is appreciated.
We emphasize respect both amongst the volunteers as well as towards local people. Furthermore, our lifestyle can be an example for many locals. Therefore, smoking and drinking are prohibited in front of the youth. And generally speaking, nothing more than personal motivation and open mindedness will be needed from the volunteer to get an insight into this rich and welcoming culture.
