Children Home and Farm: Fresh Nepal
Nepal / Infancia
The goal of the volunteer program is to share the knowledge, motivation, inspiration of volunteers and to improve the lives of the most vulnerable, especially children, who are the main beneficiaries of our projects and initiatives. Also, sharing their knowledge in different fields and teaching the children about the culture in the volunteer's home country. Volunteers can do arts and crafts; teach music, sports and subjects such as English, math or science.

National Children's Day
29th Bhadra is as Children’s Day. Children’s Day is the day when Nepal has signed and approved the protocol passed by UN Convention on Child Rights. On 1990 September 14th or 29th of Bhadra, Nepal has signed this protocol. So, to commemorate that day, Nepal started to observe 29th Bhadra as the Children’s Day from 2063 BS. Earlier, this day on 4th of Bhadra. Various programmes regarding children are conducted on Children’s Day. Nepal Children’s Organization and BAL Mandir organize various programmes throughout the country on that day.
Our Kids were participating on the National Children's day organized by Ministry of Women Children and Social welfare, Nepal. Our kids performed Dance on that programme. There were not all the kids in that programme because some kids have their programme at their school. So just some kids participated there.

Rakshabandhan & Dinesh Birthday 29th August 2015
Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. The festival is also popularly used to celebrate any brother-sister relationship between men and women who are relatives or biologically unrelated. It is called Rakhi Purnima or Krishana janmastami. The festival is observed by Hindus as well as people of other faiths. R
aksha Bandhan is primarily observed inIndia, Mauritius and major parts of Nepal. It is also celebrated by many non-Muslims in parts of Pakistan, and by some Non Resident Indian people and Non Resident Nepali around the world. It is also celebrated among all people, irrespective of their religion, in West Bengal and the Punjab.
Raksha Bandhan is an ancient festival, dating back six thousand years to the first Aryan civilization - the Indus Valley Civilization. It has many myths and historic legends linked to it. For example, the Rajput queens practiced the custom of sending rakhi threads to neighboring rulers as token of brotherhood. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie arakhi (sacred thread) on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her. The festival falls on the full moon day (Shravan Poornima) of the Shravan month of the Hindu luni-solar calendar.
At Fresh Nepal, We had celebrated it with al the family. Usually we celebrated it every year with all the kids. All the kids have brothers and sisters relation in Fresh Nepal. So as the same way we had celebrated it with all the kids… the girls tie rakhi on her brother’s wrist.
Luckily we have two volunteers from Mission Muskaan they also got great experiences about the Raksha bandhan this time. Dhana tie Thread from the priest. Emmanual and Issabel are the names of the volunteers. They are in fresh Nepal for a week.
Same day we had celebrated the birthday of Dinesh Dadal. He passed his 13th years and running on 14th years of his life. So we have celebrated it in the evening with all the family of Fresh Nepal.

Eric's Experience at Fresh Nepal.
As I got out of Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport all I could see few persons standing in front of the building, holding pieces of paper with names, some of them French, some German, others in Asian language. I knew all along that for the next two months my comprehension of written language would be radically challenged. I walked through the street looking for Dhana, hoping that maybe she could find me first, as I glanced in the eyes of a lovely little woman with the right piece of paper. “Welcome to Fresh Nepal”.
A short trip through the crazy yet funny Nepali traffic and there I was, sipping spicy tea in a small and simple kitchen. I introduced myself to Dhana, where I come from, why I am here. Then she showed me the house. It looked very peaceful and comfortable. I felt at ease from the very first moment I got in. This big mansion reminded me the place was my mother was born. It was the way every home should be. Incredibly warm, yet no heaters!
All the kids were still at school and would only be back in early afternoon. I confess that I was a little nervous about meeting them but it all disappeared when they got back home. It was time for the snack while I had the opportunity to introduce myself. The lively and curious glances between us turned very fast into happy laughs.
Let’s get to know each other
Trying to remember every name was a nightmare that almost took a week. In the meanwhile Dev joined us from his native village. We spent a lot of time talking about Nepali's reality and problems. We felt very comfortable in each other’s company and shared many funny stories about our lives while trying to improve the organization. Once the kids got back from school it was time for home works. It’s funny to re-discover all the information we passed through during our school years. Yet, also disarming being once again conscious about how I stuck in math!
Besides of that, study time was a very good opportunity to share knowledge about historical facts, geography and sciences. Once the home works were done the deal was you teach me Nepali and I teach you some Italian. Useless to say that used to turn very fast into uncontrollable laugh. It was now time for the playground. Ball games for the boys, chit-chat for the girls.
Dinner time definitely was amazing. These kids know the importance of hygiene when it comes to food. One by one they washed their personal metal dishes and cups, reached their respective seat waiting for the dinner to be served. Night after night this looked to me as a ritual, emphasized by the prayer they use to chant once everyone is served. Finally it was time to eat. Silence prevailed in the room as I filled the dishes with more soup.
It was then time to seat with the grown-ups. Dev, Dhana and I had our dinner while some kids were playing in their rooms, some already sleeping, some reading or finishing their home works. Dinner was to me a good time to acquaint myself about recipes and culinary habits while tasting Dhana's delicious Daal-bhat.
The day is now at its end; you start to feel sleepy and want to reach for your room. Yet electricity's routine is late on the schedule and you have to cross the entire dark playground that separates you from your cozy room! Don't you worry! Janak, Kamal and Suraj will safely take you home. Don't forget to look at the amazing sky before getting inside then hug your brothers’ goodnight and have a nice one yourself!
Faith will help you through
I won't lie! It’s not all about good times. First of all you could feel not to fit this place. Personally I didn't mind but you will feel all eyes on you while in the streets. Communications will be a real challenge sometimes, how do I get there? Do you understand what I mean? Arm yourself with patience and don't be afraid to ask a hundred persons to get what you need. That is if you feel like you want to roam a bit on yourself during free time. Yet you need something important just ask Dev and Dhana.
Depending on how much you will stay in Fresh Nepal, you will definitely experience some loneliness. Try to turn this feeling into a creative form, write down a log, or have a chat with neighbors. Nepali people are very sociable and open-minded. Or if you really feel depressed head to the bakery around the corner! Awesome coconut cookies!
This was for the psychological part. Unfortunately that was just the easy part. Get prepared for supersonic diarrhea and don't forget to hydrate with clean water.
Yes! These are things that could happen. Don't forget you can relate on Dev and Dhana.
The days you will spend in this magical place will give you the motivation to go on and it will be amazing to comprehend that this place works exactly like a family.
I could write down a lot more but I suggest you to try it yourself. So I'll make one last consideration: While in Fresh Nepal I learned new ways to listen and express myself. Yet the saddest thing I experienced was presumptuously believe I could give something important while in fact I was just receiving.
New Family Member of Fresh Nepal.
We are really pleased to split this news regarding our family member of Fresh Nepal. We really desire to facilitate more and more kids who are truly suffered by their family trouble (orphan, abandoned, semi orphan), poverty, flood, earthquake as well as caste systems of Nepal.
Since yesterday we have new family member. Named Manmaya Bam. She is 8 years old girl child. She is from very remote area of Nepal it called Kalikot and also she is from very poor family.
She lost her parents when she was 2 years old. Since that she was under care of her uncle’s daughter. Even her sister was trying to find the place for her take care but she was living in very remote area so it was unable to find on time for her taking care place.
Her sister, she got married then it was a big problem for her because there was no one for taking care of her. So her sister got contact with District Child Welfare Board Kalikot. So they helped to come until here in Fresh Nepal.
She is lucky that she got chance to have the education under care of Fresh Nepal. Soon she will start school. Hope that she will be a great/ good person in the future.
Why Do We Need Volunteers?
Since it’s established we got great support from the volunteer, since starting we are having some kind donation, well beloved volunteers, to put even small but valuable effort for these kids and we are in this situation with all these kids, through the great support of these people from the world.
We are happy to have volunteers for several propose at this foundation.
We have kids from different places as well as different cultures, society, and different caste groups too, because as we knew that Nepal is a country of diversity caste, cultures, and languages too. So if we will have volunteers then they can share their languages as well as cultures. Its necessaries that we all (mainly Kids) have to learn all the cultures from the world. So this is the way to share all these cultures and languages from each other. So we need volunteers for Fresh Nepal.
Up-liftment the farm Project.
We want to have a farm for the kid’s daily needed thing (vegetables, green vegetables, cow’s milk, eggs, and chickens). We want to make the organization self dependent in the near future through these kinds of projects. We want to have the volunteers who can work in the farm as well as who can have good ideas for the scientific farming. It can help to have Fresh things for the kids at their daily life.
The volunteer who can work on the administration site of the foundation. He/she can help thorough raising the fund for Fresh Nepal projects. They can help to write report/different Projects for several propose of Fresh Nepal.
The volunteer can help through helping in different government schools of Nepal. At this times so many schools are damaged as well as so many kids are being helpless/orphan through the big earthquake. So if someone wants to help them to teaching or making them happy through volunteering they can also Join Fresh Nepal. We can arrange all the things for the volunteers.
We have some contract with the Government schools from earthquake affected areas and also other remote areas government schools.
Fresh Nepal can manage all the things for the volunteers.
