Volunteer Intake for 15 May, 2017

On 15th of May, VIN welcomed its second LMT volunteers for the month of May for Volunteering in Nepal. There were 10 volunteers from different countries who will be volunteering for various projects. These volunteers are for the projects like teaching English in a Buddhist monastery, women empowerment, children development, water research, ECD and public health and medical care. The first 2 days are for the induction classes where the volunteers will be provided some basic information which provides them some guidelines for their project and in their host families.

During the first day, the induction started with the short introduction of volunteers and the staffs of VIN with each other.  In the second session, they were given a brief introduction of VIN which included the mission, vision and objectives of the organization along with some other basic details about Nepal. The third session was on the orientation about their individual project. In this session, the volunteers were divided according to their project and their respective project staffs gave them the brief information about their projects. The last session of the day was about the Nepali language classes. This class is provided to the volunteers so as to know the basic Nepali words for them while working and staying in the community.

On the second day, induction started with the health tips where the volunteers were informed about staying healthy while they are in Nepal for volunteering. Cultural tips and placement information were given to the volunteers in the second session. During this session, the volunteers were provided information about the common courtesies, attires and other do’s and dont’s which they are required to know while they are working in their projects. Then at last the day again ended with few more Nepali classes. The volunteers were also provided with the lunch boxes and a t-shirt of VIN. Finally around 3:30 pm, they were taken to their host family.
