Volunteer for Child Sponsorship Project Facilitation

Volunteers for Child Sponsorship Project Facilitation aims to support education programmes for poor and marginalised children in Nepal by enrolling them in schools via the support of sponsors. School drop-out rates in marginalized areas of Nepal has escalated rapidly in the past few years. National school drop-out rate is at 40%. Poverty is one of the major reason for such high numbers of drop-outs. 9% of the children between the ages 5-17 have never attended schools, most of them being a girl child. Till today many people in rural believe that a girl child should not be educated. In families where the members still have to struggle for a decent meal twice a day, are unable to fulfil the educational needs of children. Children are made to work in farms and support their family from a very young age. As a result, they have to struggle all their lives in the absence of education.

 

WHAT WILL BE YOUR ROLE?

During your placement, you will be placed in one of the VIN host program locations: Okhaldhunga, Nuwakot or Tarkeshwor. You will be working with the children in marginalized communities. Your major task will be to find a suitable sponsor who is willing to pay for a child’s education. You can also meet the children who have been sponsored and understand their difficulties and progress. You may assist in the process of identification of such unfortunate children who could do better with education. In your free time, you may conduct recreational activities for the children.
