Description:

Daman is a small village situated at an altitude of 2320 meters and 100 kilometers southwest of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. The village provides a beautiful view of the Himalayas with Mt. Everest in the east. The village lies on the Tribhuvan Highway, one of the adventurous highways in Nepal.

We have been operating in Daman since 2012. Daman is quite isolated and most people are farmers, living a traditional life, as they have done for generations. However, times are changing and the community has a severe lack of funds to keep up with the rapid changes that Nepal is undergoing. Knowledge of other cultures and the ability to speak English are vital skills for young Nepalese people. Many look forward to a future in the tourism business, and therefore the ability to communicate effectively with foreigners will increase their chances of having a better life once they leave the village.

We also believe that our volunteers benefit a lot from staying in Daman. Living in a completely different culture with local hosts and adjusting to their conditions is an unforgettable experience. Teaching locals to think in new and different ways is to their benefit, learning from their unique way of life is yours.

Volunteers will be involved in the reconstruction of the community center affected by the huge earthquake in April 2015, teaching in the school by games and sports, and education on disaster prevention. If the funds for reconstruction are insufficient, the main work will be education, although some work related to the construction can still be done.

Qualifications:

18 and over years of age - motivated to work for a charity project within an international team, tolerant, open-minded and cooperative person with adventurous spirit.
No specific skills or experience required.


Training:

All volunteers are requested to participate in an orientation meeting in Thamel, Kathmandu on the day before the project starts. Details about the local host, the project and the travel arrangements will be provided. All volunteers will travel together from Kathmandu to the project site in Daman.


Benefits:

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
