WE are EXTENDING our March program in Nepal to include SERVICE LEARNING in an ethnic village.
WHAT IS SERVICE LEARNING? I think Wiki nailed it: it’s an educational approach that combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs.
Basically it’s a shift from volunteering’s “let me save the world” to “let me learn as I serve you”. So we are starting a SL program in Gre village where we’ve been helping with @girls_empowered_by_travel to establish cultural homestays.
The program will be tailored to each group, and will include English classes for kids and adults, art classes/ games w kids, setting up social entrepreneurship basics in the village, workshops on hygiene etc. You can learn Nepali, taking care of crops, craft making, local dance, will learn about community issues at the community gathering etc.
Join! March 23-28 (just Gre)
May 5-17 Gre + hiking Langtang.
