The costs are covered by your project fee. In placement accommodation, your sleeping arrangements may be private or shared and in most cases you will be required to share a bathroom and toilet facilities with your host family or the monks/nuns. It is important for you to realize that bath- room and toilet facilities and standards of hygiene will be in accordance with local standards. These facilities and standards may sometimes be very basic and may not be up to in western standards. You must be prepared to cope with this. Food VIN provides food during the placement from the project fee. You will receive at least two meals a day throughout the placement, which will be of Nepali standards and usually Daal Bhat (lentil soup and rice), vegetable curry, pickle etc. If you wish to supplement your diet with other food the responsibility and cost lies with you. We will only cover food and accommodation for the period agreed for your placement and only at your placement. In most cases you will be staying with a host family after the project induction and will share the same food with them. Should you have any specific dietary needs,please let us know before your arrival in Nepal. Should you wish to visit the city on the weekends then you must cover your own food and accommodation co
