Skills for this program:
There are no specific qualifications for joining the conservation project in Nepal. However, volunteers interested in joining the conservation project should be ready for physically demanding work.
Volunteers working in a conservation project in Nepal will engage themselves in nursery works and care of seedlings and these nurtured seeds will later be distributed to the villagers in various parts of Nepal. The works include: digging, preparing nursery beds, sowing seeds, weeding, trimming, pruning, filling plastic bags, applying water, and any work related to nursery. Other tasks may include planting, collecting seeds, replanting, eliminating diseased tress and inventory of fauna and flora depending on the season. ERN presently supports a small orphanage and school in Chitwan. So, volunteers working in a conservation project can teach English or work in the orphanage in free time. This can be arranged up on your arrival in Nepal.
Stay during the project:
During volunteering in a conservation project, you will stay in a host family near to the project. Host families will offer a separate room but you will share bath room and rest room with the host family. You can find the details of arrangement for room/food in placement sheets provided to you. ERN's Chitwan office is located near to the nursery project so you will be in constant touch with our local field staff.
