There are varieties of works in Bhorle project: 1. Physical work to build more facilities in camp house - i.e new rooms, painting, gardening etc. 2. Educational activities in local primary school - i.e. teaching English, sport, music etc. 3. Environmental awareness activities with local women’s group (working together and avoiding waste... volunteers are welcome to present their own ideas!).
Bhorle village of Chitwan district, about 130km south-west from Kathmandu in center of Nepal. Bhorle is a popular destination for international volunteers. We are working there since 1995 and hundreds of volunteers have already joined international projects in Bholre. Major attraction of Bholre is their rich Gurung culture, friendly behavior of local people to volunteers and their active participation in cultural exchange day. More then that, Bhorle is located on the foot of two high mountains and closed to Trisuli river famous for rafting. Chitwan is one of the main destinations for the jungle adventures and wildlife in the world. One-horned rhino, Bengal tiger, ghadials (long/short snout) crocodiles, species of birds and others, are the main attraction of Chitwan district. All volunteers travel together from Kathmandu to camp site (Bhorle). FFN manage group traveling to get work camp place. Therefore volunteer need to be one day before the camp date. If volunteer come late, he or she will travel alone but FFN will help to catch right transportation. A public bus takes about 5 hour to get Bhorle.
Number of Places:
FFN has a camp house in Bhorle. Food and accommodation will be arranged there. This will be floor only, campers need to bring their own sleeping bag and mattress. The camp house can accommodate 15-30 people. There. A shower (cold water) will be available at the camp house, but maybe not to the standard you are used to in your country. Nepalese daily food is Dal Bhat, like Dal (soup of lentil or beans), Bhat (cooked rice), Tarkari (cooked vegetable), is provided. This is the staple diet of the Nepalese and it is eaten everyday. The camp leader will try to offer some different foods but if you would like to enjoy your native meals please bring food from your own country. Volunteers will help to prepare meals in turns.
FFN will not provide any kind of Insurance to volunteers, even during the project period. Please have the necessary insurance to cover your needs. But we assure you that we will make our best effort to create safe working environment. Orientation Day: 15th December 2011 at 3pm in FFN office in Kathmandu. We are sorry to mention that we can't pick up all volunteers at the airport due to entrance difficulties at the arrival of Tribhuvan International airport in Katmandu. If volunteer stay at least one night in Hotel Encounter Nepal or Pilgrim Guest House they are agreed to pick up to our volunteers in nominal cost (Rs 500/ Euro 6) and offer an economy room (Euro 6 to up depend on facility in the room).
