Saturday, 5 November, 2011 to Sunday, 20 November, 2011
FFN started to build a multi-purpose building here in 2002. Now this building construction work is at its final stage. We have taken it as a model project. It will be a house built by volunteers. We are also developing an attractive garden around the building. Aswell volunteers will help in day-to-day work in the park i.e. gardening, clearing of picnic spots and feeding to animals in mini zoo aswell as other similar tasks.
The project location is Martyrs Memorial Park situated on the top of a small hill near Hetauda City of Makwanpur district (about 120km from Kathmandu). This is the first such a kind of public park in Nepal established by local initiative (by Hetauda Municipality). We have been organizing international projects here to help in constructing and designing the park since 2000. All volunteers travel together from Kathmandu to camp site Hetauda. 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 6 hour to get Hetauda.
Number of Places:
FFN arranges accommodation in private rented or community house. Showers will be available at the camp house. The showers may not be the same standard as 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). 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: 4th November 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). Therefore volunteers are requested to send their arrival information to us in time so that we can ask Hotel Encounter Nepal or Pilgrim Guest House to reserve a room and pick up you.
