    My experience with Volunteer Venture Nepal is unforgettable. Oh my God...Memory of sarangkot and pokhara, I canot forget. My wife and I were living With a family, in a village west of Pokhara. Everyday, we were teaching English in shree Mani jothi Lower secondary school sarangkot approximately 40 students in every class. it was really have interesting discussions, debates, and talk about more concrete topics in class, such as politics, environment, culture, etc.Iam interesting in carpentry My wife Beth were working in the local sarangkot health post sarangkot. Even if she is practical Medical knowledge was limited when she arrived, the nurses and assistants were really kind with her, teaching her what they knew. From patients' examination to injections, She learned to do everything that can be done in a health post! We donate some fund for health post and some to organization for schooling to poor children.

    People from Volunteer Venture Nepal were really supportive too. before beginning, they gave us Nepali language classes, introduced Nepali culture and showed us important places around Pokhara. During our volunteer work, they were always present and supportive, giving us teaching materials for our classes and more.

    I will never forget what I learned in Nepal, and will always remember My nepali friends and our host family I was placed to Mr. krishna Timilsina"s family. It was lovely and nice family we get English speaking environment there and we never faced language problems there .Sarangkot is very interesting place to see sun rise and sunset
    It is lasting impressive for me. Thanks.

    I cannot describe it in this small pieces of paper Thanks to Mr Krishna , Director of this organization who provide me this chance to write few words about this organization.

    I have got some chance to see some activities in rural area. 

    Volunteer Venture Nepal staffs welcomed me, touched me and even more, continues to touch me... Here is in some words an outline of what was my environment and my daily activities for the few months spent in this beautiful country… 

    The introduction in the community made possible with the help of Volunteer Venture Nepal, and the NGO (non governmental organization) was always there during key moments of our volunteering project, although not overprotective, leaving place for us to organize our activities. We were lodged by a family in kaskikot which was very much involved in the community for the total duration of our training course. Dimension of the family life was if not more important as much as the activities we had during our stay. Since the family and community values are very present and strong within the Nepalese culture, living with people of the community enabled us to be an integral part of the village and thus made the meeting and development of relationships easier. The contact with the culture itself, the life habits, traditions, festivals, etc was thus very strong. The exchanges with the members close to the family were very nice . Kaskikot is very interesting place to stay and everybody feels very easy there.

    Where should I strats,? Last month, I was in pokhara as teaching volunteer . I was placed to shree Jana Jagrit higher secondary school sarangkot it is 7 K.M. from pokhara. I was amazed at the trust and love the children shared with me after knowing me. The basic day was an early rise followed by exercise. The kids had great energy that needed to be utilized. Then came their class with the English teacher at first. I was able to just sit with the children and provide help with spelling, speech and writing. Dal Bhat came next before heading off to school at ten. When the children were occupied elsewhere I would head into the office to do some paperwork. We would usually have a few games in the afternoon. Such as hide n seek, cycling, drawing and reading. The second time for the English teacher to come was at around half five. I can definitely see the progress they are making which will help them at school. Dal Bhat at 7, followed by more games and the occasional comedy programme on TV. Bedtime was early at 9pm, but remember in Nepal most people are up by round half 5 to 6am. My placement was too short for my liking and I am already planning my second trip in a few years time. My role as older brother and supervisor was demanding but also rewarding at the same time. I recommend voluntary work in Nepal to anyone who is searching for a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the community and come away feeling very fulfilled.Thanks to Krishna for providing me this chance and Krishna small for language teaching .

    We had two weeks at the sarangkot placement. It is about an hour bus ride from Pokhara in a hilly jungle area. It is famous palce to see sunset and sunrise It was summer. We helped plant rice when we were there. We stayed with a lovely family who cooked really great food everyday and invited us to a family wedding.
    The placement in the resource library was fun and very popular with the children. Lots of the older children can already speak quite good English due to private school education and especially loved the games we played at the library. The younger children really seemed to benefit from the extra English. 
    We also visited the orphanage in Pokhara for street kids. It is a new project that Volunteer Venture Nepal is beginning to support and seems to be very worthwhile.

    We spent 4 months in Pokhara Falls working at the orphange. We taught English lessons mixed with a little geography and social studies and we tried to make it fun as much as possible by incorporating games into the lessons. The kids were great and very enthusiastic about learning but some very firm discipline was necessary to maintain order. If given the opportunity, some of the kids would quarrel, steal and be dishonest so we had to keep a sharp eye on their behavior. The majority of the kids however, were a pleasure to work with and once the rules were understood there was productive learning for everyone there. 
    The classes were broken up by age group and in the morning at 6:45 we began with kids aged 11-13 of which about ten kids usually showed up. At 7:30, the 8-10 year old group came in which was about the same amount. We taught almost identical lessons to these two groups because many of the younger kids were more capable in English than the kids in the older group. Over the course of our time there we taught lessons on the use of plurals, apostrophes, contractions and basic world geography. We had them practise writing sentences in their copy books using the things they had learned from the English lessons. The geography was limited to continents, oceans, a few key countries in Asia and where volunteers came from since the kids were always curious about our homes. If everyone cooperated and finished their assignments quickly we would often finish with a short game. They absolutely loved the games. Every game we played was enjoyed by the kids

    Dear all, 
    I just had an amazing time in Sarangkot thanks to Volunteer Venture Nepal I’m back home now for one week and I miss the friendly Nepali people, the beauty of the country, the many friends I met there, the lovely little school where I teached English, and most of all my wonderful host-family who took care for me so well... It was great to experience daily life in Nepal, to adjust myself to a totally different culture. Thanks to the hostile Nepali people, my family and krishna, I felt so welcome. Thank you krishna for all the support. I feel very lucky that I had the opportunity to experience this all! And as soon as possible I come back to Nepal and Sarangkot for as long as possible! In between, I have a lot of wonderful memories... 
    A big thank you Krishna
