The Sankosh village development community is situated in Dhading district. It is 2 ½ hour drive away from Kathmandu and on the way to Pokhara. This village has local people mostly depending on agriculture and some others depending on government job like- teacher, officer, etc. We can see Brahmin, Newar, Gurung, Damai, Kami and sarki people in this village. The high caste people like “Brahmin” is giving quality education to their children in good Boarding school in district headquarter and other poor people like Damai, Kami, Sarki, and Gurung send their children to the local primary school. Once they finished the primary level, they walked 1 hour uphill to the next school for higher education.
This is an opportunity to help in a wide range of practical village-based projects. Community project works are usually decided upon in consultation with local communities, but you can use your initiative to suggest projects of your own. Projects are usually partly funded by the communities and partly by our partner organization and/or volunteer contributions. It is essential that you are sensitive to the needs and wishes of the local community. This service project provides the exchange of knowledge about each other and also helping the “needs of Nepali communities” by contributing a small amount of help where it is needed. In this community, the half of the villagers have their challenge which can be directly absolved through this program. The drinking water resources are less and there are no proper collections of water storage tank. After building the water storage tank, the villagers will have an enough drinking water and they will be able to feed their pets and animals easily. And in another side, the primary school having small playing group located in the height will get secured, where the numbers of the student are falling down every year and getting injured. Such program has been found to encourage schools/communities to provide security to students’ life while running unknowingly on the playground. NTA has been conducting similar educational tour program in different villages of this district by organizing the “Heath Camp Project” for the local poor people since last 3 years. You'll work in a group usually with minimal supervision. Often you'll also work alongside villagers, learning about traditional methods of building and working. Example projects include; a different cast & religions’ cultural performances, school playground compounding and awareness of cleaning the surrounding, toilet, drinking water projects, recycling projects and learning Nepalese style agriculture.
Community Maintenance Program
The Community Maintenance program is an opportunity to help in a range of community-based projects in a practical way. Students will be placed in basic projects such as building the water storage tank, compounding the walls of the school and learning the Nepalese agriculture. All projects are undertaken using local, Nepali standard tools and virtually, everything is done by hand. This program involves students undertaking jobs that require no specific skills and often involves large amounts of humping, dumping and digging.
