It is quite an interesting experience to me in Nepal, where I have acquired much inspiration and happiness. Once you go out to see the different world,you can have an amazing memory and time to enjoy.
The program I took part in was Childcare in Nepal. The routine work is to look after, accompany and teach children. Sometimes I assist local teachers to do some daily work.The children there are beautiful with big eyes and they are around three years old. Yet they are too young to understand English so we mainly communicate by facial or body languages. They are cute and willing to play with volunteers. It is quite interesting to communicate with them by that way and gives me lots of fun. Sometimes I talk to them using simple Nepali language where I learn from the local, but you know ,this time is always short. hahaha. You can give your creative ideas and teaching methods of your country to the teachers, talking and exploring with them so that you can build a fantastic class. It is quite a good opportunity for me to see diversities and different culture there.
Besides that ,what I want to mention is that children are like to eat candies and chocolates and volunteers need to learn to give them in a proper way such as when they perform well in class they can get a bonus. It is significant to give sweets to children as a bonus or inspiration rather than a simple give. Some children may ask you to bring sweets another day and we need to tell them every effort counts since they are young and important to develop. Actually, this action helps the class more interesting and active and you can truly enjoy time there.
The homestay there is very good to me and I really enjoy the scenery there. This is my first time to Nepal and take part in program. Everyday can be wonderful only if you put efforts and try to make it happen. I miss Nepal and people there.:)
