TRAVAIL

This is a form of land cultivation where crops are grown among trees. It provides a greater biodiversity and greater harvests. This is your chance to help ease traditional subsistence farmers onto new methods which greatly improves the quality of their lives. You will be placed in the project living quarters.Daily activities- Work under skilled Nepali farmers instructions, cultivating land and engaging in agroforestry.- Help maintain the living quarters and surroundings.- Carry out research activities.- Teach techniques of agroforestry (for experts in agriculture).

SITUATION

Jitpur community of Kathmandu District, which is only about 11 km away from main ring road to Balaju, Kathmandu. Nuakot and Okhaldhunga, a beautiful and hilly district, is located in Everest Region of Nepal. It has limited developmental activities and facilities. From Kathmandu, the shortest bus route is about 250 km which is rough and takes one day to reach there.

BESOIN SPéCIAL

Basic English, knowledge about project

2005 by a diverse group drawn from development workers, educationalists, social activists and other
professionals.
VIN’s mission is to empower marginalised communities, with a focus on women and children,
through enhanced educational programs and community training to promote equality, economic
well-being and basic human rights.
Community Focused Programmes
VIN has a main community based pilot project in Jitpur, a rural community 11km from Kathmandu city.
The area was chosen because of its geographical location, lack of development agencies, people
interest, and its development needs. VIN has established 4 key programmes in Jitpur:
 Women’s Empowerment
 Children’s Development
ï‚· Youth Development
ï‚· Community Health
The organization’s objective is for these programmes to be run by the Jitpur community (independently of
VIN) by 2012. Our community volunteering projects are based on around above 4 major programmes.
Out of Community Support Programmes
VIN runs a number of other volunteer placement programmes not directly related to the Jitpur community
but indirectly these programmes still contribute to our main programs. The programmes include:
ï‚· Teaching English at Buddhist monasteries / nunneries
ï‚· International journalism
ï‚· Environment, conservation and agro forestry
ï‚· Orphanage support
ï‚· Working with disable people (e.g., deaf, elderly)
