Family Volunteer, belgium

, 12/07/2018  to  19/07/2018

We are a Belgian family with three kids of 15, 13 and 9 years old that participated last summer in a volunteering project organized by VIN and we are very enthusiastic about it.

Before departure to Nepal a good preparation of the project is key. In an intake skype conversation we defined together with the project coordinator Prajana the setup of our little project: what are the needs of the village community and how could we bring added value.

Thanks to a donation of 6 laptops and some fundraising for a projector, we decided to give computer initiation lessons to the young kids in the village.

In one week time the goal was to learn the kids how to make a little PowerPoint presentation about Nepali life.

From our side, our kids prepared a presentation on their daily life in Belgium: their hobby’s, school, family and friends.

Our youngest boy collected sport gear in the football club he’s playing at. Playing sports is a great way to communicate with the Nepali kids.

We got the support from 2 lovely Nepali students that helped us to organize the activities and translate when needed.

At arrival in the village school, 24 enthusiastic kids were waiting for us. Their motivation to learn gave us so much energy!

On the third day the group of kids had grown to over 50! A real success.

Sometimes the circumstances where challenging. Basics like the availability of electricity during the day and the lack of drinking water at the school.

Our host family took care of us and allowed us to get a view on their way of living.


We are very enthusiastic about this unique experience and the way VIN made this possible.
