Volunteering in the Foothills of the Himalayas

Volunteering in the Foothills of the Himalayas

One of our Sixth Form students, Olivia, spent her October half-term visiting Nepal with the charity Lincs2Nepal. The charity was founded in 2009 and since then has run numerous projects within the country, including children’s homes, supporting a children’s HIV centre as well as running a major disaster relief programme following the earthquakes in 2015.  The charity also started the Jeevan Jyoti School a mixed caste school in 2014 which now educates over 1,000 students with almost half the students being supported through the Lincs2Nepal sponsorship programme.  In addition they run a children’s home for 20 orphans and disadvantaged children.

During her 2 weeks in Nepal, Olivia spent time volunteering in both the children’s home and school.  She accompanied the children from the home on a trip to a local water park where staff and volunteers were able to offer swimming lessons and tips but also provide the children with a fun day out.  On her days in the school, Olivia took part in a variety of different activities from helping deliver teacher training to running a sports day, and teaching drama and PE.

All in all it was an unforgettable experience for Olivia, whose family have close links to the charity and have supported it for many years. It also made her very appreciative of her life here in the UK as well as the number of opportunities open to her.  Olivia is definitely hoping this will be the first of many trips to Nepal to support the work of the charity.
