Village vision in Nepal
Insight Nepal believes that serving others is one of the most worthwhile human endeavors. The main objective of the program is to provide opportunities to those who are keenly interested in gaining a cultural experience by contributing their time and skills to benefit worthwhile community service groups throughout the Kingdom. Our second objective is to help those who are looking for an opportunity to reach people and community groups who are in need of their skills.
Nature of the Program:
There will be three primary phases during the course of the program. In each phase, the participants will have different activities and experiences designed to make the most of their time in Nepal .
At the beginning of this phase, participants will be given a brief orientation about the schedule of the program, health care, and some cultural clues (like the do's and don'ts with their Nepali family). City tours will be arranged including some important places like the Immigration Office, the Post Office, Banks and other facilities in the Pokhara valley. During this phase participants will be given basic communication skills in spoken Nepali by a professional language trainer. The participants will also stay with a Nepali family to stimulate cross-cultural experiences and to reinforce new language skills. This will be followed by lectures which cover a variety of topics about Nepal. Thus, this will be a preparation phase for the participants to move into their placement sites.
In this phase the participants will have ample opportunities to learn about Nepal, gaining both theoretical and practical experiences by observing and participating in the family and community. All these activities and experiences will help them to build self confidence and develop the cultural understanding necessary before starting the next phase.
During this phase the participants will work at their placement site according to their interests and the needs of the host organization. The participants will be under the guidance and supervision of the host organization. Although Insight Nepal will try its best to match the participant's interests with their placement, it could sometimes be different from their expectations. Insight Nepal functions as a mediator between the volunteer and the host organization.
Since the participants will be wo rking and interacting with different people in a new environment, it will be an excellent opportunity to share their ideas and skills. The participant will learn by working with others to overcome barriers and solve problems. In other words, this is a process of "give and take" in which the participants not only contribute their time and skills but gain a new perspective of the world. This phase can be as frustrating as it is rewarding but it will be a personal experience that is unforgettable!
Village Excursion Phase:
In this phase insight Nepal will organize a one-week trekking excursion in the Annapurna Mountain Conservation area for the participants. This is primarily to introduce them to rural areas of Nepal beyond the city. While trekking through the mountains and villages, the participants will share in the traditional lifestyle of the Nepali people and enjoy the fascinating views of snow-capped peaks, lush green valleys with their flora and fauna. Here the participants will put their language and cultural skills to work in yet another part of Nepal .
In this part of the program, Insight Nepal will organize a trip to the south of Nepal for an elephant safari in Chitwan National Park . The park is one of Nepal 's largest forest regions with wild life ranging from the wild boar, the rhinoceros and the crocodile to the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger.
During the stay in Nepal the participants will have tremendous opportunities to explore and discover a unique way of life. They will experience the natural beauty of the kingdom as well as feel the warmth of the smiles of the Nepali people, and will depart with a love of this country.
