Volunteers will alos care for orphanage children, play with them, teaching sport, music, helping them to get ready to go school and taking them back from school.
Pokhara is situated an altitude 827m above sea-level and 250km west from Kathmandu valley - a remarkable place of natural beauty and renowned for vallies of lakes and caves as well stunning panoramic views of Himalayan peaks. Pokhara is the starting point of Mount Annapurna and Machapuchere trekking. There are several adventure activities going on every day around Pokhara valley i.e. boating, rafting, paragliding, rock climbing etc. All volunteers travel together from Kathmandu to the camp site (Pokhara). A public bus takes about 7 hour to get Pokhara.
Number of Places:
Food and accommodation will be arranged in orphanage house. The orphanage house has space to accommodate 10-15 volunteers. A shower will be available at the camp house, but it may not be at 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: 19th 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). 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. There is also possibility to stay in FFN training center located in a peaceful area closed to ring road. The training center can offer dormitory for €5 + Airport pick up for €5. There are several nice restaurants nearby, you can enjoy local food. You can make tea or coffee at the training center.
