Camden Stephenson

From 15/04/2010 to 13/05/2010

My volunteering placement was in Computer Technology. I spent two weeks working in a local youth centre, and two weeks in the VIN office. During this period I was residing with a host family in Tinpiple, a small village in the Jitpur provincial area north of Kathmandu.

The experience of teaching and living in the village was both challenging and rewarding, which is exactly what the purpose was. Working at the Youth Centre I developed a good relationship with students and the staff, as well as at VIN office. It was a wonderful experience to get to know local students, local staff as well as people in the village. My host family were exceptionally generous and kind to me. The challenges associated with such an environment were challenges I am very happy to say I met.

Living and working in Nepal is unlike any other country I have resided in. While only a small country (compared to their neighbours), they do have a strong sense of national identity. They understand themselves very well, and certainly have a strong sense of community that I do not see as much in my home country.

A wonderful experience I would thoroughly recommend for anyone who is looking to make a difference, be challenged and enjoy the wonderful hospitality of the Nepali people.

VIN is an original, authentic ‘grass roots’, credible, organised and professional organisation. VIN staff are highly competent and dedicated to their cause.
