Art and Craft Volunteer
Art and Craft Volunteer Project aims to provide meaningful active self-learning and self-expression for children to be able to realize their own potential. Teaching and learning process in Nepal is very traditional. A great deal of importance is given towards academic learning and securing better marks. However, there is little or no significance of creative expression like art and craft. From as early as nine in the morning children go to school and study. They get a thirty minutes break for lunch and continue with their classes till four in the evening. They go home, and are expected to do homework and study until bed time. The same cycle is repeated every day. Moreover, children have to face abundant of competition when it comes to their academics. Every single one is expected to be better than the other by his/her parents and teachers. The trend to compare children on the basis of marks secured is very common in Nepal. Therefore, the process of learning become very monotonous for children which in turn destroys their imaginations and expressions.
