Rovers / Young Leaders – Volunteering in Nepal

 

Do you want to be involved in the developing and funding an international service project with real life benefits to young school people in Nepal ?
Do you want to go to Nepal and volunteer in a local village school as teacher / teacher’s aide in either ‘Computer skills’ or ‘English as a second language’ ?
Do you want the opportunity to stay in a local Nepalese village for three months and learn the culture ?
This project will be introducing Australian Scouting members (Rovers and / or young leaders) as volunteers to cultural experience of living and working in a Nepalese community village setting, whilst supporting the local economy and education system in a teaching / teaching aide role within the local village.
To date the project team have been putting plans into action - looking at initially six rovers as volunteers in 2019 (hopeful with more in future years); supplying funding for scout informs for the Nepalese school students; and providing updated computer hardware facilities into the school classrooms.  
We are looking for additional Rovers to join the team to continue the plans into a working project, including fundraising and other funding options, promotions and cultural awareness, communicating with our Nepalese contacts, and lots more.
