Children’s Life Skills Facilitation

Program Fees Children club

VIN has implemented the Children’s Development Program to support communities to enable children to receive an education, explore their creativity, and develop for the good of the community.  VIN’s Children’s Life Skills Facilitation Clubs provide a platform for children to develop their life skills and explore innate talents.  VIN seek committed volunteers or interns to help facilitate the children’s clubs, bringing with them energy and creativity to inspire the children.

While more than 40% of Nepal’s population are under 16 years of age, the children of Nepal remain a marginalised, voiceless section of society.  Poverty and discrimination are barriers to a good quality education.  Within the education system, teaching quality is low, often provided by untrained teachers.  Rights, creativity and expression are not promoted in school or at home; childrenlack life skills and their interests go unrealised.

VIN’s overall mission is the empowerment of marginalised communities by focusing on women and children.  VIN has worked with Jipur Phedi community since 2007.  We have established eight children’s clubs in the community with the ultimate goal that they will become autonomous, active mechanisms to exercise and advocate children’s rights.

Over the last five years the children’s clubs have organised camps and provided children’s life-skills and sanitation training and creative classes, such as writing and street drama.  VIN continue to review the children’s clubs annually, providing children’s life skills education for overall child development.

VIN is looking for volunteers or interns to support our Children’s Clubs in JitpurPhedi and our new focus community, Okhaldhunga.  You will help to facilitate the clubs, arranging interactive games, club meetings, outdoor activities, debates and creative events.  You can also help to organise and participate in our children’s camps.

Participating in the Children’s Life Skills Facilitation Project provides volunteers with a unique opportunity to directly impact Nepali children by creating a positive and fun environment while simultaneously teaching them important life skills that will allow them tolead empowered lives.

During your volunteer placement you will live in the community with a Nepali host family, ensuring that you become immersed in the texture and language of Nepali life.
