One of the well known tourist sites of the Terai region is Chitwan whose name means "heart of the jungle".. This area is one of the last surviving examples of the continuous band of forests and grasslands which once extended from the Indus River in Pakistan to the Burmese border.. The main attraction of Chitwan is Chitwan National Park, the first and most famous national park of Nepal.. The Park is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is home to teeming wildlife such as the rare great one-horned rhinoceros and the elusive Royal Bengal tiger.. Besides rhino and tiger, Chitwan also supports a great variety of flora and fauna and several species of deer, sloth bear, leopard, wild boar and the white stocking.. Gaur (the world's largest wild cattle) and many other smaller animals have made the Chitwan jungle their home.. The swamps and riverside provide a home to marsh crocodiles and the rare and endangered Gharihal or Gangetic crocodile.. Volunteers in Chitwan are conveniently placed to visit the Park and experience activities such as an elephant ride through the jungle, bird watching and canoe rides on the Rapti River..

  • Title: FACE Nepal: Information about Nepal for Volunteers
    Descriptive info: Information about Nepal for Volunteers.. Now that the Maoists are involved in Government, the risks of a few years ago are much reduced.. Volunteers are encouraged to contact us if they have any concerns to ask about the current situation of Nepal.. We will inform you of what we know and also offer you contacts of volunteers as alternative sources of information.. It is also advisable to contact your local Foreign Affairs Department for any current situational views.. History.. The history.. Nepal has long been independent, and is justifiably proud of the fact that it was never conquered by any empire.. Nepal's founding father, Prithivi Narayan Shah, referred to Nepal as a 'Yam between two boulders'-namely China and India.. Geography.. Nepal is famous for its mountains, most notably Mt Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.. Nepal measures about 800 km east-west and 230 Km at its widest point north-south, making a total area of around 147,181 sq.. km.. However, the mountains are only part of the nation- many of its people live in the Terai, only 100m above sea level.. The contrast between mountains and plains make for one of the most geographically diverse nations on Earth.. Physiographic Regions.. Nepal consists of several physiographic regions.. Most people live in the lowlands which contain the best farmlands and are much removed from the impression of Nepal of those who have not been here.. The Terai.. The flattest land in Nepal is the Terai.. This forms the Southern 40km of Nepal's North to South length.. Most of our volunteers work in the Terai.. Chure Hills.. These are the first of the four mountain ranges and span the whole country, with an average height of 900m.. Mahabharat Range.. The next range of mountains is the Mahabharat Range, or the 'Middle Hills'.. These are between 1500m and 2700m in height, and can provide some spectacular himalayan views from thier summits.. The Himalaya.. Nepal's borders contain about one-third of the total length of ht Himalaya.. This includes 10 of the world's 14 tallest mountains, which all stand over 8000m.. We can provide volunteer opportunities in the Himalaya for those hardy volunteers who wish to experience this beautiful part of the world.. Climate.. Nepal has essentially two-season year.. The winter season from October to May is dry, and the temperatures vary significantly depending on where you are- the Terai rarely dips below 10 degrees celsius, and is generally warm for all but a couple of months.. The himalaya can get very cold- volunteers are encouraged to bring warm clothes!! The Monsoon season runs from June to middle of September.. In summer in the Tarai region the maximum temperature can reach 42 degrees centigrade- volunteers will be provided with fans.. Ecology Environment.. Despite its abundant natural gifts, the environmment in Nepal is sufferings from a growing and developing population, and the lack of recycling facilities and other environmental protection measures that exist in the West.. Forests are being chopped down for housing and firewood.. This is why we need volunteers to help us in the conservation projects, replanting these trees.. The ecology and environment of Nepal are fragile and a rapidly growing population is constantly  ...   near many of our Volunteer placements (though not close enough to pose a danger!.. Key Information.. Visas: All foreign nationals (except Indians) require visas.. Single-entry tourist visas are issued for up to 90 days.. Volunteers should view our FAQ's page for more information.. Health risks: Some exist, volunteers are encouraged to consult thier local health experts.. Time: GMT/UTC plus five hours 45 minutes.. Electricity: 220V, 50 Hz (when available).. Weights measures: Metric.. Attractions.. There is a huge amount to do in Nepal and volunteers are encouraged to obtain a guidebook to the country.. We keep copies of Lonely Planet and Rough Guides, donated by former volunteers, in our library which volunteers can borrow or read.. Volunteers are free to travel to any of these great destinations, but we request they inform us with sufficient notice of thier plans, especially if it involves taking time from thier volunteer programs.. FACE Nepal management are happy to assist volunteers with booking buses, or general advice on travel.. Kathmandu.. >.. The country's capital and largest city has more temples than you can shake a stick at.. The vast majority of our volunteers arrive at Kathmandu, and as part of thier program fee, volunteers are taken on a tour of Durbar Square and to the famous 'Monkey Temple', Swayambhunath.. Volunteers also stay two nights in the tourist district, Thamel, where all sorts of food and drinks are available.. Patan.. Patan, the second-largest city in the valley, is very close to Kathmandu , but is quieter and more relaxed.. The city is a great place to experience traditional Newari architecture.. Bhaktapur.. Bhaktapur is the third major city in the Kathmandu Valley.. More compact than Kathmandu and Patan, Bhaktapur is home to lots of architecture and temples, many dating from the 17th century.. Terai.. Most Volunteers with us will be based in the Terai.. It's subtropical climates make for milder winters and its flat land makes it easy for volunteers to get around to see the sights in the area.. Top on many volunteers' agendas is the Royal Chitwan National Park, with elephant safaris, jungle walks and canoe trips.. Volunteers can see rhinocerous, boar, many types of bird, sloth bears, and if they are very lucky, tigers and leopards.. Volunteers here in December can watch the Elephant Polo Championship- former volunteers have even been able to take part! Another major destination that many volunteers like to go to is Lumbini, birthplace of Lord Buddha.. Janakpur is an attractive city in the Terai with Nepal's only railway and temples that bring many Indian tourists.. The city's religious significance is due to its role as the birthplace of Sita (Rama's wife in the Hindu epic Ramayana).. Janakpur is a good day's bus journey from our base in Chitwan, but volunteers wishing to experience Hindu places of worship can visit Manakamana, Devghat, or Kalika Mandir, all within two hours from FACE Nepal's base.. Pokhara.. The city of Pokara a beautiful city around a lake, surrounded by mountains.. Many volunteers wish to go trekking when in Nepal, and Pokhara is a great base for this.. The bus trip to Pokhara will take volunteers about four hours through beautiful river valleys..

In the house they will live as part of the family.. They will have a private bedroom, but all other facilities will be shared.. Also provided are two traditional Nepali meals each day and tea (chiya) twice daily.. How much do your volunteer programs cost?.. Our volunteer program costs are very affordable.. You can find them on our.. registration page.. I have a series of items (e.. books) to donate, can I use these to offset the program fees?.. Unfortunately, no.. We gratefully welcome any donations of items from volunteers, however these are not expected and cannot be used to offset the volunteer's program fees.. If I make my own way to the program location, and skip the Kathmandu element of the program, am I eligible for a reduced program fee?.. If a volunteer is familiar with Nepal are comfortable with making your own way to your program location, then they may be eligible for reduced program cost rates.. Please make this known in your volunteer application and we can advise you.. How long can I volunteer for?.. You can volunteer for a minimum of 2 weeks and maximum of 5 months.. A volunteer's stay can be extended depending on the time of year they arrive - the maximum amount of time a visa for Nepal is given is for 5 months in a year so a volunteer can extend a program if arriving at the end of one year and staying into the next.. If you wish to volunteer for less than two weeks you may contact FACE Nepal to see if there are any appropriate locations where you can volunteer without any prior training.. If I decide to extend my volunteer program, can I do so and if so how much will it cost?.. While you are in the volunteer placement you may decide to extend your stay.. If you do so you must notify FACE Nepal at least one week before departure so that they can ensure your accommodation and your program may be extended.. Please also see the note above about visas.. After your first period the cost of continuation is US$75 per 2 weeks.. Can I take a break to go trekking or sightseeing?.. Yes.. It is advisable to give FACE Nepal 2 weeks notice of any desired travel so that any necessary placement cover can be arranged in your absence.. Alternatively we will gladly incorporate anything into a volunteer's program at the application phase.. For ideas, learn.. about Nepal.. How will I teach without knowing Nepali?.. During the training period, volunteers on our teaching programs will be taught a basic level of Nepali language including classroom directions.. In a school volunteers will be accompanied by a teacher until they are fully confident to teach a group of students alone.. In a community group or special project someone will be on hand  ...   many host families will feel more comfortable accepting you in this capacity.. How much warning do I need to give FACE Nepal before wanting to start?.. At least 2 weeks is desirable for volunteer programs and one month for project work.. If you are already in Nepal and wish to spontaneously volunteer, please.. contact.. FACE Nepal directly to see what can be arranged.. Please note that in the busy trekking season hotels in Kathmandu get booked up so more notice is required to ensure that rooms are available.. How do I get a visa for Nepal?.. Volunteers can obtain thier visas when they arrive at the airport in Kathmandu.. You will need to bring a passport photo and some cash to pay the fees.. You will also need to bring the details of your volunteer organization, including the name and address, to specify on your documentation.. If you want to avoid queues at the airport you can apply for your visa in your home country.. PLEASE NOTE: ATM's do not always work at the airport so you must bring enough cash with you for the visa.. American dollars, Euros and sterling are accepted.. What is the caste system and how will it affect me?.. Nepal operates under a caste structure which in simple terms means that by birth-right each family is assigned a caste, or social category.. The societal respect given to a person is generally subject to the status of each caste.. In your placement volunteers will be living with a "Brahmin" family, which is the highest caste.. This is necessary to ensure you are considered with sufficient respect to carry weight in a classroom.. In our volunteer program we endeavor to eliminate caste references but in the rural areas we still must work within the system.. If you are placed in a 'Tharu' village, which is a lower caste but also the most native and cultural group to work with, you will find it easy to adapt and live as they do.. What should I bring?.. You can buy most things in Kathmandu very cheaply.. The asterix * below represents things volunteers can buy here..

  • Title: FACE Nepal: Sponsorship - Help a child through providing the opportunity to gain an education, sufficient food and medical care
    Descriptive info: Sponsorship Programmes.. For those individuals who want to support FACE Nepal, but whose personal commitments do not allow them to come to Nepal to volunteer, sponsorship opportunities are available in almost any format.. Child Sponsorship Programs.. Project Sponsorship Programs.. School Sponsorship Programs.. In line with our desire for transparency, our sponsorship programs:.. Encourage direct communication between recipients and donors.. Encourage donor involvement and visitation.. Offer full cost transparency so that you know where each dollar of your money is going.. Child Sponsorship Program.. FACE Nepal works to match sponsors with children in Nepal, to ensure that they recieve funding for education.. Without sponsorship, these childrens' parents would not be able pay the costs of sending thier children to school.. By sponsoring a child, you are transforming thier future prospects for the better.. Sponsors are needed to provide the gift of education to impoverished children.. How much does it cost to sponsor a child?.. FACE Nepal wants to ensure that an individual sponsor directly contributes to the education of an individual child, rather than thier contribution going into a 'pot' for sponsorship.. As a result, the amount of annual sponsorship will vary from child to child dependant on a number of factors, notably thier age.. As an indicative amount, to sponsor a child through elementary school for a year will cost between.. 200 and 270 US dollars.. Lower Secondary and Secondary school pupils will cost slightly more.. When you register your desire to sponsor, we will choose the next child on our list of worthy candidates and provide you with a description of this child and an annual cost specific to them before you commit.. If you have any preferences (for example, a maxmium annual contribution you can make), please specify this when submitting the registration form.. How long will my sponsorship last?.. Sponsorship is only truly effective if it continues for the duration for the child's time at school.. Therefore, we request sponsors to be committed to supporting the child until they graduate from Grade Ten, in order to provide the child with a true foundation of education.. Therefore sponsor financial relationships can last up to eleven years, depending on the age of the child at the time of sponsorship, though the real relationships can last for a lifetime.. Should circumstances arise where the sponsor is unable to continue thier sponsorship we request that they advise us as soon as possible so we can make alternative arrangements.. Sponsors are encouraged to provide thier donations annually, and we will provide sponsors with revised costs, based on that child's new class/grade, each year.. What contact will I have with my child?.. Feedback reports on the health and well-being of your child will be sent on an annual basis.. These show the improvements that your contribution is making to this child's life.. Should you want an update between these reports- whether on a specific issue or generally, you are encouraged to email us at info@facenepal.. org and we will provide you with an update as soon as possible.. We encourage contact between you and your sponsored child, via a local community resident, and can also provide support to you should you wish to visit your sponsored child via a community liaison officer.. I want to sponsor- what are the next steps?.. If you are interested in looking at this sponsorship option please.. with any remaining queries or submit a.. registration form.. It is important to note that costs for schooling fees and other sponsored areas will vary slightly by region, by age group and will occasionally change with inflation and exchange rate fluctuations.. Due to this diversity we will provide you with a quotation for you to approve with details of the child, the cost breakdown and any other relevant details.. When the child's needs change or if other costs vary significantly i.. the child moves from primary to secondary school or the exchange rate has a major shift, an updated fee structure will be sent to you for approval.. What will my sponsorship cover?.. The following figures indicate the prices charged for Child Sponsorship.. It is not intended that this service create an income stream for FACE Nepal to invest in projects.. This service has been price structured to breakeven only.. The scholarship and medical contributions however offer an additional funds account to FACE Nepal to assist in meeting community needs to these sponsored children.. The below gives a breakdown of what your sponsorship will cover.. This is the basic sponsorship- other options exist and are outlined below.. All costs are based on an average estimated price for grade 5 (10-11 years old).. All fees are listed as annual costs in Nepali rupees, while the equivalent in US$ (at a conversion rate of 70:1) has been added in the final 2 rows.. Sponsorship Provides:.. Item.. Government School.. Annual Cost.. Indicative- Grade 5.. School Uniform x 3.. 3,000.. School admission fee.. 600.. Monthly school fee.. 100.. Exam fees x 3.. 300.. Books/equipment/bag.. 4,000.. Primary health care.. 1,500.. School tiffin.. Administration costs.. Inc annual report.. 2,000.. Extra tuition.. 2,400.. Total costs in Nepali Rupees.. 16,900.. Total costs in US Dollars.. US$241.. Money Transfer Fee.. US$25.. Total Sponsor Fee (USD).. US$266.. Notes.. Monthly School Fee- Government schools are free Grades 1 to 8 but they take expenses for materials.. Extra Tuition- Parents are often unable to help with homework and may even be illiterate so extra tuition provides for this.. Money Transfer Fee- Unfortunately, banks and other financial instituions levy a charge for money transfer to Nepal.. Other Options.. We would gladly welcome any sponsors who would like to extend thier sponsorship to include contribution to a savings fund for scholarship (to allow the child to go to university) or contribution to a savings fund for any medical treatment the child may require.. Please contact us (info@facenepal.. org) for more details.. (Get Registration Form).. Frequently Asked Questions:.. I have heard that there are Government and Private schools in Nepal- can I pay for a child to go to private school?.. The government schooling system is a subsidized education option, whereas the Private schools, also known as boarding schools, are independent operators.. It is commonly regarded that the education standard in private schools is much higher than government schools as their teacher to student ratio is generally much greater.. What does sponsoring Government School Fees include?.. Please see the above table for a breakdown.. All fees are paid by FACE Nepal direct to the supplier.. When I sponsor a child, where does my money go i.. to the family or to FACE Nepal?.. In order  ...   will I know that all my money has reached them?.. If you wish to give additional money to your preferred community, family, or child we recommend that you send the money via FACE Nepal and specify where you would like the money to go.. Again, we would encourage against any excessive contributions, in order to minimise any issues within the community.. If you wish money to be given directly to a family, a representative of FACE Nepal will deliver the cash to them upon the receipt of your cheque or money transfer.. It is not safe to send money directly and most rural families do not have their own direct bank accounts.. We are happy however for you to verify directly with the intended recipient their receipt of the full donated amount to ensure the integrity of the internal transfer.. 15.. What happens if my sponsored child completes their schooling or no longer requires my direct support for some reason?.. In the event the situation of your sponsored child changes FACE Nepal will contact you and ask you if you would like to continue your sponsorship with another child or complete your support.. 16.. There is no mention of living costs covered in my sponsorship, are my fees contributing to the family at all?.. Your sponsorship only covers the items mentioned in the table above but we can assure you that this contribution provides a major source of assistance to families.. In Nepal the actual living costs of families are very low and it is the schooling, clothing, medical assistance and other like areas where they primarily need help.. With the support of volunteers, donations and project work, FACE Nepal endeavors to assist families in improving their actual living standards but due to control and funding allocation challenges we did not deem it appropriate to try and incorporate this into the child sponsorship program.. 17.. How should I make my payments?.. FACE Nepal prefers payments to be made in an annual payment to their nominated account in order to reduce money transfer costs and ensure that the funds are regularly available to meet the bill payments of the sponsored child.. If for some reason this format is not acceptable to you please contact us to discuss other options.. 18.. If I do not speak English or Nepali, how can I communicate with my sponsored child?.. In the event that you wish to communicate with your sponsored child with translation from an alternative language you will need to send your correspondence via FACE Nepal Administration Office and we will rely on our network of international volunteers to support in the translation of your correspondence to and from your sponsored child.. 19.. Can I email my sponsored child or their family?.. For the safety of the sponsored child we do not permit correspondence in this form directly between the sponsor and the sponsor recipient.. In addition, many village children do not have access to computer and internet facilities.. 20.. Can I select my child from a photograph?.. FACE Nepal discourages this form of selection as we do not want to discriminate or sell the children in this manner.. If you have a firm desire for a specific gender, age group or certain region of residence, we will incorporate your request in any selection.. You will be given a photograph of your sponsored child when you accept a quotation and this photograph will be updated each year.. You will not however receive a photograph at the selection stage.. Project Sponsorship Program.. Sponsoring a community project with a one-off contribution is a great way to add an immediate and significant improvement to a community of Nepal.. A list of worthy projects waits funding in many communities and varies broadly in scope and nature.. Projects can be sponsored for as little as US$1,000.. 00 which will provide basic hygiene amenities to a village, or US$50,000.. 00 or more which will build a rural orphanage or a free child care centre for community users.. FACE Nepal will develop project plans including timelines, costs and methods and will submit these for your consideration so you can select a project that satisfies you personally or meets your corporate goals; or if this level of detail is not required in advance, we can simply use your funds towards our next prioritized item.. For specific project sponsorship we request a deposit of US$100.. 00 to pay for the quotation and planning involved in the submission of project proposals for your consideration.. If you wish us to simply use your funds towards our next prioritized item the deposit can be foregone.. A full feedback report and color photographs of any project investment will be provided along with bi-monthly feedback should the project be on going.. Feedback can be formatted for corporate needs and will include details of the progress of the project as well as financial reporting on donations received and total expenditure.. School Sponsorship.. Many government schools operate with inadequate funding, poor resources and overcrowding.. By sponsoring a school you can assist in:.. Providing additional teachers.. Building play ground facilities.. Offering medical, dental and/or hygiene checks to students.. Providing additional training to existing teachers regarding international best practice.. Providing teaching resources and materials.. Providing recreational equipment.. Providing funds for cultural events and further internal fundraising activities.. In sponsoring a school you may choose to offer a monthly contribution i.. an additional teacher's wage is as little as Us $100.. 00 per month, or you may contribute a one-off donation.. When sponsoring a school we encourage direct correspondence with the school principle to ensure the appropriate utilization of your funds and enable the school to directly correspond their appreciation.. Other Fees.. FACE Nepal does not take any commission from sponsorships with 100% of your donation going to the nominated child, school or project.. If planning or administration is required by FACE Nepal staff the cost of this assistance will be disclosed at the outset of your sponsorship.. For example an administration contribution of USD$50 per annum is required in child sponsorships to enable us the check on the children, provide progress reports and coordinate all funding distributions.. For all project sponsorships where plans are prepared in advance and submitted for your consideration, we request a donation of US$100.. 00 for planning and quoting, administration, sponsor communication and feedback involved by FACE Nepal.. Applying to for a sponsorship.. Please complete the.. and submit it to us.. We will respond immediately with an acknowledgement and then it will take up to 7 days to make the arrangements for your sponsorship to commence..
