Nepal - Culture

 

Would you like to visit our friendship school in Nepal (and do you have the courage)? Then the journey of a lifetime and an educational journey beyond measure awaits you.

The most important thing is that you get a unique opportunity to get to know a completely different part of the world, where family and spiritual values are more important than material goods. Here you see the development from the Middle Ages to the present played out before your eyes. In the encounter with young Nepalese people you will learn about life in the contrasted Nepal and about yourself.

 

The lessons

In this culture subject and during the trip you will broaden your horizon and definitely also transgress a boundary or two. The trip offers physical activities, such as e.g. wandering up a mountain with a knapsack, and cultural and social activities, such as staying with a host family that most likely does not speak any English.

During our expedition we are going to visit our friendship school for 3-4 days in a mountain village and take part in the everyday life there. Subsequently we will explore part of the nepalese nature through various activities, such as e.g. trekking and rafting - perhaps we will even get a view of the Himalayas.

In the capital city we will also be working with societal and political projects, such as e.g. women's rights, relief organisations, electric cars etc. and your own interests will be the driving force behind the project.

We will be working with a lot of the UN Sustainable Development goals, since Nepal is a developing country where the background for the development goals clearly shine through. We are especially going to be working with "Good Health and Well-being", "Quality Education" and "No Poverty".

 

Pre travel

You will be well equipped for a cultural encounter of epic proportions and trained to convey this encounter to others. This is done by immersing yourself in various topics within the Nepalese culture, traditions and history and then experiencing the conditions on your own.

As preparation for the trip we will be working with various aspects of the Nepalese culture, religion, history, nature and geography.

You must also do research for an article, a film or a presentation. The reseach before the trip serves as a basis for studies and interviews during the trip. Before the trip you must plan and prepare a small teaching project to be used in connection with our visit to our friendship schools.

 

After the trip

After the trip you must prepare a small presentation of your trip - with experiences and reflections - and present it to the class and other interested parties.

 

Demands for you

You must be prepared to challenge yourself, both physically as well as mentally. You must be prepared for physical training before the trip (also in your free time) and you must be able to carry a rucksack weighing about 18kg. You must possess the desire and courage to throw yourself into situations that are far from your comfort zone at home - and you must have an open mind that is ready to process everything that the fantastic, beautiful Nepal can teach you.

 

Safety

The areas we will be travelling to are safe travel areas according to the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and we have good local contacts that also assure us that the area is safe.

 

Vaccinations

Hepatitis A, typhoid fever, diphtheria, cholera.
