Children’s Development is one of the major programs at VIN’s Integrated Community Development Approach. The Goal of the Children’s development program is to protect the rights of all children by providing them access to basic quality education, developing their life skills (creativity, leadership etc.) & providing access to health & hygiene services. VIN has different projects under children’s development program such as Children’s Clubs (CC), Early Childhood Development (ECD), School Attendance (Teacher Development, Parenting Education, School Infrastructure Development, and Child Sponsorship) and Child Care. Even in these days in Nepal, schools are focusing on mainly on examination and are not doing enough to develop life skills like creativity and leadership for children. Teachers only focus on reading and writing – rote learning. Creativity and individual differences in children are not explored. Due to the busy work schedule of parents, most of the children do not have an opportunity to socialize and be creative. That’s the reason why, this types of camps are so essential to provide life skills development opportunities to children aged between 6-12 years old. We work only with disadvantaged communities as these families cannot afford to take their children to holidays during their Winter & Summer breaks. Children don’t have a proper structure and environment at home, or a school to develop their innate talents. Children's camp (at winter and summer breaks) is one of the best places to explore their innate talents such as creativity and leadership. In this workcamp, national & international volunteers will facilitate different types of fun and creative activities for the children where VIN works. Objectives: To provide unique opportunities for overall development (social, emotional, physical, mental, creativity) & provide fun-time for children aged between 6 and 12 utilizing their vacation period. To promote the friendship, understanding and solidarity among local young volunteers and cross-national volunteers. To provide an opportunity to understand and appreciate the Nepalese culture and traditions via cultural immersion.
The volunteers will conduct children's camp to promote their innate talents & creativity for their overall physical, mental, social & emotional development. During the children’s camp volunteers will prepare sessions and take classes on following topics: Physical exercises, team building, drawing, colouring & painting, art, craft & origami, singing and dancing, drama, music, and hiking, teaching language and so on.
Logement & Nourriture
The volunteers will stay with the host family/hostel identified by VIN. The living facilities are simple and basic. Male and female volunteers will share the same living area with separate rooms. The volunteers sleep on simple beds / mattress. Please bring your sleeping bag.
