Plan My Volunteer Organization Nepal

Our major mission is to create a global understanding by encouraging volunteers to assist with our community development and youth mobilization programs. Our organization, (PVN-Nepal) provides all the interested volunteers throughout the world a chance to tour throughout this beautiful country volunteering in any sectors they like.

We are looking for volunteers/students from your School/university/organization who can come to Nepal and help our people by teaching English, Awareness about Sanitation and the Environment, Cultural Exchange, and enrollment orphanages, as well as many other social aspects. While PVN Nepal have no any partner organizations.

Many other short term (less than one year) volunteer programs are very expensive, with some approaching thousands of dollars. PVN-Nepal was formed specifically because many other programs were cost prohibitive, and we offer low rates and better facilities.We would like to request you to provide information about PVN to your potential Staffs / students / Volunteers who might be interested in our organization. Our website is www.pvnnepal.org

Our programs run throughout the year and are available to both School / University groups and individuals. Our expeditions are designed to enhance classroom learning with real-world experiences. They can incorporate a wide range of educational activities in the natural sciences, history, tourism, or social studies fields. Expeditions are designed to meet your educational curricula requirements; fit the dates and budget of your students; and satisfy parents and teachers needs with high safety standards. All chosen expedition locations are ideal for running challenging and safe conservation activities, offering opportunities for trekking, wildlife conservation and community projects. Your students will discover rich wildlife, gain a cultural understanding of tropical developing countries, and develop their expedition management and leadership skills.

We also design programs as per your various interest and needs. We are very flexible in this regard.

 

PVN-Nepal can offer students trekking in the Himalayas, white water rafting, jungle safaris and cultural family stays while helping the community most of which is included in the program fee. Nepal has a long rich history and there are no limits to the sights to be seen.

 

a) Teaching English at our Village Recourse Centers

The primary purpose of the Center is to offer community youth the opportunity to develop their English language skills and to give the young people a beneficial and positive way of spending their time rather than taking up drinking, smoking or gambling. PVN-Nepal's Resource Centers offer English language instruction and cultural interaction to young people and adults in the community. Ultimately, the philosophy is that improved language skills will lead to employment, particularly in the Chitwan and Pokhara tourist areas as well have enormous advantage in any further education: English language is the medium for tertiary education in Nepal. Being able to consolidate classroom knowledge with a native or very good speaker of English is an enormous advantage in learning English and learning about cultures is also enriching and important.

 

(B) Environmental Awareness

Volunteers will teach environmental awareness at the local school and/or Environmental Post for 2 to 4 hours each day, Sunday through Friday.Environmental awareness projects will be defined by the individual volunteers based-upon their areas of expertise and the needs of the village community. Example projects include:  creating "green" clubs, planting a flower garden, planting trees, garbage management, recycling programs making a smokeless stove, building a toilet pit, etc. Volunteers may also provide assist to youth clubs or women's groups in the community sharing their ideas, skills and knowledge about environmental issues. After completing the Nepali language and cultural training, volunteers will  be placed with a Nepali family in one of the program villages. The host family will live no more than one half hour from the school/Environmental Post PVN Nepal local coordinator will be helping to volunteers..

 

(C)Cultural Exchange & Home-stay Program

Home-stays and cultural exchange programmes can be arranged in most areas of Nepal with our 30 Host-families. Participants will be placed with a Nepali family in a small rural village for the duration of their stay. This provides the volunteers with an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people. Volunteers should remember that this is a cultural exchange and that an effort to offer some knowledge of their own home culture and customs to the family with whom they stay is appreciated. During their stay, volunteers will attend 2 hours of language lessons in the morning and in the afternoon. They will also have the opportunity to visit and help out at the local school. Home stay programmes are best organized from August to December which is the time when most large local festivals take place. This makes for an overall more exciting experience for the volunteer. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and participants are made to feel as though they are part of the family. PVN Nepal local co-ordinator will be on hand to help volunteers.

 

(D )Health Post & Sanitation Issues

 PVN Nepal's health post program provides a wide variety of experiences depending on the time of year. While at your placement, volunteers may be doing very hands-on work such as giving shots and treating wounds; conducting home-visits; developing and delivering information on health issues such as birth control and personal hygiene; providing office support; and providing knowledge transfer to the health post doctors on the latest first aid techniques. Volunteers usually work approximately two to four hours a day in the health post, supplemented by teaching health education classes at a local government school or women's group. Prior to your placement at the health post, volunteers will receive one week of Nepali language and cultural training. During their placement, volunteers will stay with a local Nepali family located within a half-hour to an hour from the post. PVN Nepal local co-ordinator will be available to help volunteers.

 

(E )Teaching various subjects in Schools

 In this program, volunteers teach various subjects at theirs choice at government schools to students of varying age and ability, although most students are aged ten to sixteen. Depending on the school, volunteers will either teach independently or with another Nepali teacher. Volunteers teach between two to four 45-minute classes each day, six days a week (Saturdays are holidays).Volunteers enrolling in this program will also be expected to share their own teaching methodologies/experiences as well helping the school's teachers to develop their own conversational English skills. Prior to their placement, volunteers will receive two weeks of Nepali language and cultural training. During their placement, volunteers will stay with a local Nepali family located between a half-hour to one hour from the school. An PVN Nepal local co-ordinator will be available to help volunteers. This will be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life.

(F) Volunteering at Orphanage

Volunteers will be placed in an orphanage where they will live with the children, or with our host family,assisting them in their day to day routine. The children are mostly between the ages of four and fifteen, and have a basic understanding of English. The general role of the volunteer will be to act as an older sibling: to care for, look after and encourage the children. Volunteers will teach the children general life skills, including health and sanitation, as well as arts, crafts and music. Depending on your own skills and interests, though, you can also teach songs, music, dance, cooking, or any number of activities, and generally just spend quality time with the children.

 

(G)Fundraiser for our Resource Center and other projects

Volunteers are needed to raise funds for PVN-Nepal . We need grant writers and fund-raisers of any kind to bring urgently needed funding to the organization and it's project. We would like the volunteer to raise funds to run the program we are running in different parts of Nepal and the different types of programs. The volunteers will raise money and send it to PVN Nepal and the volunteers will also provided with one of the various volunteering opportunities we are providing.
