Hi,I'm seleem from Singapore,Always been travelling around asia,europe n usa as a tourist But when i found out about fun-nepal and the programme that they offer for volunteer....i immiedietly sign up for it Mr kamal help to arrange for the programme as per our discussion over the email....on arrival in nepal,i was met at the aiport by mr kamal n he was always there when i needed help with anything through out the 1 month stay The first 4days was introduction to the nepali language,culture n also include some sightseeing programme around the kathmandu area.....stayed at a hotel on top of the hill with a great view of the city The hotel staff were very friendly n helpful,always asking if i neded anything....they even prepare a special dhal bhat dinnner for me during dinner
Next i went for a 4d3n trekking in pokhara....mr ram was there to welcome me on arrival in pokhara,the next morning we start our trek....he is a great trekking guide,very knowledgeable n it was nice talking to him along the trek....learning about the culture of the people staying around the trekking region.... the trek to the top was fanstastic,great view of the snow covered dhaulagiri from our tea house...
It was followed by a 3 weeks stay with a local host family in the indrapuri village, chitwan....upon arrival in chitwan,i was met by mr rudra at the city centre,he picked me up n bring me to the host family house on a motobike He the helped to introduce me to the host family..... the host family welcome me with open arms...they help me to settle in very quickly to the new enviroment.... Every morning after breakfast...i went to the local school to interact with the local kids,teaching english n math...although the school was lacking some basic needs....the kids was very eager to learn n are a joyful to teach....everytime i step into the school compound..they will greet me n also invite me to their class,wanting to interact with me.....the teachers are very friendly too...on the last day before school close for the dashain holiday,the school organized a cultural programme show....some showcase their cultural dance while some sang nepali songs to entertained the crowd.
The kids really enjoyed themselves..... The people at fun-nepal also organize a visit to the ideal home,a centre for helpless woman n orphanage children....there we distribute some present which were donated by my kind friends back in singapore.... It was a great learning experience... hearing abt wat they are doing in helping the women n the children to get back in the society by providing them training n also the knowledge they need to have a better future ahead Apart from teaching at the school.
I also was given the chance to coach the local soccer team preparing for the soccer tournament just before the dashain festival At the final game....most of the villagers came down to support the team,We won 5-0 n emerged as champions after which we had a victory celebration,it was a crazy atmosphere the players,fans young n old dancing to the drumbeat n horn played by the village elders all the way back to the village which is 3km from the playing field.....it was an experience i wont forget ever....
The following week....all nepali celebrate dashain....a week long school holiday n celebration My host family,invited me to their grandparents house,where a tika was put on the forehead for good luck I was treated just like one of their family members....food was great n everybody had a great time at dashain I cant thank the host family enough for taking care of me for the 3 weeks staying at their home....they even pack my local favourite snack 'vathmas' for pme to bring home.....the village resource centre official organize a farewell party for me at the club house.....the host family make me a nepali outfit as a parting gift n i wore it to the event.... When its time to say goodbye....i was feeling sad n happy at the same time Sad to leave the village but happy to have met all of them during my stay.
The planning n co-ordinating by mr kamal n the fun nepal team really make sure,i had a wonderful time coming to nepal as a volunteer.....everything was taken care of....from the 1st email right up to the last sending off.....it was indeed a FUN-Nepal trip for me...
Thank you Mr .Kamal n the FUN-Nepal team.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
